Federal Judge Blocks Trump From Ending DACA
Posted by Staff

A federal judge temporarily blocked the Trump administration from ending the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program on Tuesday, declaring that the Department of Homeland Security’s “decision to rescind DACA was based on a flawed legal premise."

U.S. District Judge William Alsup ruled the Obama-era program must remain in place while litigation plays out.

Alsup, an appointee of former President Bill Clinton, also said the program should continue, allowing those already approved for the program to renew their DACA protections and work permits.
