Appeals Court Strikes Trump Administration’s Efforts to End DACA
On Thursday, a three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit unanimously upheld a ruling that President Trump is not permitted to immediately end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival (“DACA”) program brought under the Obama administration in 2012—keeping the present nationwide injunction in place. As we previously reported here, in September of 2017, the Trump administration sought to end DACA after the state of Texas and several other states threatened to sue to force and end of the program that allows undocumented immigrants who came to the U.S. before the age of 16 and met certain criteria to enjoy a period of deferred deported action. In response, a number of courts throughout the country ruled the administration’s reasoning to end the program was incorrect and DACA has remained in place.
