The Department of Homeland Security is accepting new applications for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals – or DACA – program. 

It comes after a federal judge ordered the Trump administration to restore the program.

DHS says it may still appeal that decision.

DACA protects about 650,000 young people from deportation.
