Federal Judge Temporarily Blocks Trump from Ending DACA

A federal judge has temporarily blocked President Donald Trump’s decision to end the Obama-era program that has protected some 800,000 illegal immigrant youths from deportation.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced in September that the Trump administration would rescind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, program — which primarily involves immigrants brought to the United States as children — sparking a nationwide flurry of lawsuits.

However, U.S. District Judge William Alsup granted a request Tuesday by the plaintiffs to prevent ending the program as the lawsuits are being played out in court.

Alsup wrote in his decision that as the legal challenge to Trump’s decision moves forward, the administration must “maintain the DACA program on a nationwide basis.”

The judge’s ruling affected five separate lawsuits filed in Northern California, including one by the state and another by the governing board of the University of California school system.
