Donald Trump's administration appeals 'Dreamer' immigrant ruling to top court

The Trump administration has asked the U.S. Supreme Court to review a judge's ruling blocking the administration's decision to end protections for hundreds of thousands of young immigrants.

The appeals court ruled that Mr. Trump had exceeded the authority Congress had given him over immigration and had violated a part of the immigration laws barring discrimination in the issuance of visas.

Attorneys for the U.S. Department of Justice said in a court filing that they were appealing the January 9 ruling by a federal judge preventing Trump from ending the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

During his judicial career, Mendheim has presided over more than 300 jury trials and has been appointed to hear over 250 cases in more than 35 counties, a press release stated.

U.S. District Judge William Alsup in San Francisco ruled that California and other plaintiffs had shown that they were likely to succeed on their claims that the Trump administration's revocation of the almost six-year-old program was "capricious" and not in compliance with federal laws.

Rulings by federal judges are normally challenged in appeals courts - in this case, the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco, a tribunal that Trump has denounced after past rulings in other cases.

About 800,000 young, mostly Hispanic adults dubbed "Dreamers", have been protected from deportation and allowed to work legally in the United States since the program was implemented.

But in September, the Trump administration delivered on its campaign promise by moving to dismantle DACA. At the time, more than 689,000 people were enrolled in DACA, and 12,710 have lost their status since.

Judge Alsup said the Trump administration was wrong and DACA, established by executive action, was legal.

U.S. District Judge William Alsup threw a curveball at negotiators last week when he issued a series of rulings. Alsup also rejected the administration's request to dismiss the lawsuits. Those states had successfully challenged another Obama order that would have shielded parents of legal US residents from deportation.

In a brief filed just two weeks ago, the federal government told the justices that the most recent version of the ban is different from earlier iterations.

At the time, Trump said he would give Congress six months to pass a new law that would allow DACA recipients-known as Dreamers-to stay in the U.S. The president and Republicans are using the preservation of DACA as a bargaining chip with Democrats in their push for sweeping immigration reform. The district court has entered a nationwide injunction that requires DHS to keep in place a policy of non-enforcement that no one contends is required by federal law and that DHS has determined is, in fact, unlawful and should be discontinued.

Officials are not, however, required to accept new applications for the program.

In a statement issued Tuesday, California Attorney General Xavier Becerra said he is confident the appellate courts will "see the logic and justice" behind Judge Alsup's decision.
