Ap­peals court rules against Trump on DACA

Tri-City Herald - - News -

A U.S. ap­peals court blocked Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump on Thurs­day from im­me­di­ately end­ing an Obama-era pro­gram shield­ing young im­mi­grants from de­por­ta­tion, say­ing the ad­min­is­tra­tion’s de­ci­sion to phase it out was ar­bi­trary be­cause it was based on a flawed le­gal the­ory.

A panel of the 9th U.S. Cir­cuit Court of Ap­peals unan­i­mously kept a pre­lim­i­nary in­junc­tion in place against 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.
