A Bundestag The judge in Washington has most clearly rejected the rejection of the Trump administration for discontinuing the "Deferred Action for Children Arrivals" program by not just stating on Tuesday that the Administration Dreamers must continue to apply for renewal, but must also accept new applications.
It's the third ruling against federal judge administration since the government overturned the DACA in March – judges in California and New York have previously ruled that the Department of Homeland Security must process extension requests, which the DHS is doing now – and it would essentially reset the DACA program to its pre-Trump days. The judge, US District Judge John D. Bates, a judge appointed by George W. Bush, however, set a 90-day stay in his ruling so that the DHS can provide a more reasonable justification for its decision to end the program.
The decision, the judge ruled, was "virtually unexplained" and "arbitrary and moody." It was therefore "unlawful".
According to the Washington Post, the Trump administration argued that Texas and other states threatened to sue over the DACA, and because the Trump government believed the program would not survive a judicial challenge, it decided to end the program , The threat of a lawsuit, according to Bates, is not sufficient grounds.
Donald Trump, who reiterates the arguments of the conservative opponents of the program, had repeatedly argued that President Barack Obama had exceeded his constitutional authority in the drafting of the program. When the government announced its intention to end the program, Trump called on Congress to find a solution and temporarily used the DACA as a lever for budget negotiations to secure the financing of a border wall. The congress could not reach an agreement that would protect the dreamers. Trump seemed to withdraw his support for the young immigrants.
The case of Tuesday was brought by the NAACP, Microsoft and Princeton University. In a statement, the Department of Justice stated that the Trump government had reviewed the decision and that ending the DACA was merely intended to protect the border and enforce the law. "Today's order does not change the position of the Department of Justice on the facts: the DACA was unilaterally implemented after Congress refused to increase its benefits to the same group of illegal aliens," spokesman Devin O & #; Malley said in a statement , "The Ministry of Justice will continue to vigorously defend this position."
Around 700,000 dreamers – undocumented immigrants who were brought in as children before the age of 16 – are currently protected by the DACA. If the Trump administration does not give a more satisfying reason to end the program, thousands more could apply.
