De­por­ta­tion move stalls

Sunshine Coast Daily - - WORLD -

A US ap­peals court blocked Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump yes­ter­day from im­me­di­ately end­ing an Obama-era pro­gram shield­ing young im­mi­grants from de­por­ta­tion, say­ing the ad­min­is­tra­tion’s de­ci­sion was based on a flawed le­gal the­ory.

A three-judge panel of the 9th US Cir­cuit Court of Ap­peals unan­i­mously kept a pre­lim­i­nary in­junc­tion in place against Mr Trump’s de­ci­sion to end the De­ferred Ac­tion for Child­hood Ar­rivals pro­gram.

Law­suits by Cal­i­for­nia and oth­ers chal­leng­ing the ad­min­is­tra­tion’s de­ci­sion will con­tinue in fed­eral court while the in­junc­tion stands.
