 A federal judge in Brooklyn, New York, ordered the Trump Administration Friday to fully restore the so-called Dreamers program that protects undocumented immigrants brought to the U.S. as children.

U.S. District Judge Nicholas Garaufis directed the Department of Homeland Security to post by Monday a public notice that it will accept petitions for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which hasn’t accepted new applicants since 2017.

In June, the Supreme Court blocked the administration from ending the initiative that shields hundreds of thousands of undocumented immigrants from deportation and lets them seek jobs.

The high court said the administration didn’t adequately consider its options or the implications before rescinding DACA. The court also left open the possibility for President Donald Trump to attempt to terminate the program.

At a hearing in August, Garaufis discussed the long history of the litigation over DACA, saying, “this has remained unresolved and 700,000 plus people are directly affected.”
