Judge Blocks Trump’s Decision to End DACA

“A federal judge Tuesday night temporarily blocked the Trump administration’s plan to end the program that shields from deportation hundreds of thousands of immigrants who came to the country illegally as children,” the Los Angeles Times reports.

“With his decision, U.S. District Judge William Alsup in San Francisco granted a request by California and other states to stop the administration from ending the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, at least until lawsuits can play out in court.”

Playbook: “This only heightens the need for Washington to act in a permanent way to change immigration laws legislatively. DACA supporters believe this is only a temporary legal victory. They say the administration is within their rights to end the program, and are still seeking an immediate legislative fix.”
