Trump or­der blocked

Gulf News - - Americas -

A se­cond US judge on Tues­day blocked an or­der by Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump to end a pro­gram pro­tect­ing from de­por­ta­tion mi­grants who had been brought il­le­gally to the coun­try as chil­dren. The de­ci­sion comes af­ter a fed­eral judge in San Fran­cisco in Jan­uary ruled against re­peal­ing the De­ferred Ac­tion for Child­hood Ar­rivals, or DACA, pro­gram.

In Septem­ber, Trump said he was scrap­ping the DACA pro­gram but de­layed en­force­ment to give Congress un­til March to craft a last­ing so­lu­tion for the pro­gram re­cip­i­ents, in­for­mally known as “Dream­ers.” Some 690,000 Dream­ers reg­is­tered un­der the DACA pro­gram, and 1.1 mil­lion oth­ers were el­i­gi­ble but did not sign up.
