Second judge blocks Trump administration from ending DACA

Second judge blocks Trump administration from ending DACA

Last September, the Trump administration announced that they were rescinding the Obama-era DACA program, which temporarily protected immigrants who were brought to the United States illegally when they were children, if they met certain requirements and applied for the program.

U.S. District Judge Nicholas Garaufis in NY ruled Tuesday that the government hasn't offered legally adequate reasons for ending the program, known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals - or DACA.

A California judge made a similar ruling last month.

The total number of DREAMers who have received DACA protections over the five years of the program.

It wasn't until 1997 that he stood in for his wife at a public engagement for the first time, during a visit to Greenland. According to traditions, men married to female monarchs get the title of prince consort, not a king.

He delayed enforcement to give Congress until 5 March to enact a replacement plan for Daca recipients, known as "Dreamers".

TPM: "The papers of many people in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program will expire on March 5, and the short-term budget blows past that deadline, funding the government until March 23 and raising the debt ceiling until mid-2019". Because the cancellation of DACA has already been halted, Garaufis' order won't have any immediate effect on Dreamers.

A federal judge in NY ruled Tuesday that the government must fully restart the Obama-era DACA deportation amnesty and accept brand new applicants as well as renewals, throwing a potential wrench in the ongoing debate over the fate of "Dreamers" on Capitol Hill. DOJ is fighting Alsup's January order and has petitioned the US Supreme Court to hear the case right away and skip the US Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit. The administration's reasoning, he wrote, was based on the idea that the DACA programme - instituted by former President Barack Obama in 2012 - was unconstitutional.

"Anybody who's grown up here undocumented has had a lifelong contingency plan I think that keeps adding to it and changing and evolving as time moves forward", said Cortes brought to the U.S.as a toddler.

The plaintiffs had argued that the administration violated federal law by cutting off a program that hundreds of people relied on with little explanation.

Trump was referring to a deadline he announced past year to end a program protecting young immigrants from deportation.

The administration will not have to accept new applications for the programme, but will have to continue accepting renewals. "For one thing, the President has stated his support for keeping DACA recipients in the country". Almost 80 percent of DACA recipients are originally from Mexico, a country the president has accused of sending rapists and other criminals into the U.S. "The proposal would offer a pathway to citizenship to 1.8 million young immigrants eligible for the expiring Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, in return for $25 billion in border security and wall money as well as cuts to family based-immigration".
