Federal judge blocks Trump's attempt to let DACA expire for current recipients

Federal judge blocks Trump's attempt to let DACA expire for current recipients

A judge said maybe racism was behind President Donald Trump's decision to shut down a program protecting young undocumented immigrants from deportation.

Trump promised to end the program during the presidental campaign, and in announcing it was being phased out, U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions called it an unconstitutional circumvention of Congress.

"The new administration didn't terminate DACA on policy grounds", Alsup wrote in the opinion. "An important question now presented is whether that conclusion was a mistake of law". She doesn't know if DACA will exist by then.

The announcement comes four days after a federal judge in San Francisco ordered the Trump administration to restart the DACAprogram until a lawsuit challenging the administration's decision to end the program plays out in court. Under Alsup's ruling, renewal applications must still be accepted, giving those approved another two years from the new date of their application approval.

Renewal applications will, however, only be accepted from people who previously received DACA and whose deferred action had expired on or after September 5, 2016.

"It just shows everyone how broken and unfair our Court System is when the opposing side in a case (such as DACA) always runs to the 9th Circuit and nearly always wins before being reversed by higher courts", Trump tweeted after the order came out.

President Trump held a meeting with lawmakers on Tuesday about passing new legislation to allow the DREAMers to stay in the country, though he has pushed for funding for a wall with Mexico to be part of any immigration policy overhaul.

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, a division of the Department of Homeland Security, posted on its website that the renewal process for grants of deferred action under the Deferred Actions for Childhood Arrivals will resume immediately.
