Appeals Court Rules Against Trump on DACA Immigration Program

Appeals Court Rules Against Trump on DACA Immigration Program

A United States appeals court has ruled the Trump administration must continue a programme begun under former president Barack Obama that protects hundreds of thousands of young immigrants who are in the country illegally.

A three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Thursday chose to keep in place an injunction blocking Trump's decision to phase out the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA.

Lawsuits by California and others challenging the administration's decision will continue in federal court while the injunction remains in place.

Trump said on Wednesday that he saw potential to work with Democrats, who won control of the House of Representatives this week, but he would have to see how the Supreme Court rules on the issue.

She said the court was not trying to infringe on the president's power to enforce immigration law but wanted to enable the exercise of that authority "in a manner that is free from legal misconceptions and is democratically accountable to the public".

Following Trump's announcement in September 2017 of the plan to end DACA, the Reform movement's Religious Action Center called on him to reconsider.

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, based in San Francisco, has been a thorn in Trump's side since he took office a year ago and has drawn the Republican president's ire for its decisions in high-profile cases.

The 9th Circuit would hear any appeal by Trump's administration of the ruling late on Thursday by a federal judge in Montana blocking construction for environmental reasons of the Keystone XL pipeline project that is created to carry heavy crude oil from Canada to the United States. Today's decision exemplifies the importance of the courts in protecting our rights and reminds us why we must continue to fight against President Trump's efforts to stack the courts with narrow-minded elitists pursuing a right-wing ideology. Trump proposed terminating it previous year in hopes of prodding Congress to act. "If the Supreme Court.makes the decision based strictly on presidential history and legal analysis, DACA should remain a valid program", Duggal says. Trump's action sparked an outcry from immigration advocates, business groups, colleges and some religious leaders.

In February, a federal judge in NY also blocked the administration from ending DACA.

Trump's decision to end DACA prompted lawsuits across the nation, including one by California.

The 9th Circuit has handed him defeats on his travel ban targeting people from several Muslim-majority countries and his bid to withhold federal funds from so-called sanctuary cities that limit cooperation on immigration enforcement. That decision was stayed pending appeal.

Options that have been discussed are extending DACA or providing a path to citizenship in exchange for funding for a wall along the US-Mexico border.
