Judge Blocks Trump’s Plan to End DACA

On January 11, 2018, A California federal judge issued a nationwide injunction to prevent the Trump administration from proceeding with its plan to roll back or end DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) program, allowing its beneficiaries to reapply for work authorization and deportation protection.

The Trump administration announced the move to end DACA program last September with a planned end for early March. DACA protected young undocumented immigrants who came to the US as children from deportation.  The judge said a nationwide injunction was “appropriate” because “our country has a strong interest in the uniform application of immigration law and policy.”

“It is important to remember, however, this is temporary relief by a single federal district court judge, it should not take the pressure off of Congress to do the right thing and enact a permanent solution for these young people,” said Karen Tumlin, legal director of the National Immigration Law Center, which advocates for rights of immigrants.
