Federal Judge Rules Against Trump’s Effort To Halt DACA ProgramDoug Mataconis / Outside the Beltway - 5 days ago
  • Late yesterday, a Federal District Court Judge in California issued a ruling putting the Trump Administration’s efforts to end the Deferred Action For Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program on hold:
  • WASHINGTON — In the middle of an intense political fight about the program that shields from deportation young immigrants who were brought illegally to the United States as children, a federal judge in California issued a nationwide injunction late Tuesday ordering the Trump administration to start the program back up again.
  • Saying the decision to kill it was improper, Judge William Alsup of Federal District Court in San Francisco wrote that the administration must “maintain the DACA program on a nationwide basis” as the legal challenge to the president’s decision goes forward.
