Judge rules against Trump administration on rescinding DACA
U.S. District Judge William Alsup grants pretrial injunction barring President Trump from rescinding Obama-era DACA immigration program; chief White House correspondent John Roberts reports.
A federal judge in San Francisco on Tuesday barred the Trump administration from turning back the Obama-era DACA program,"which shielded more than 700,000 people from deportation, Reuters reported.
U.S. District Judge William Alsup, an appointee of President Bill Clinton, ruled that "the program must stay intact while litigation is played out."
Alsup ordered that until a final judgment is reached, the program must continue "and those already approved for DACA protections and work permits must be allowed to renew them before they expire."
Dreamers who have never received DACA protections, however, will not be allowed to apply, Alsup ordered. Trump last year ended the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. He gave Congress "until March to find a fix."
The Department of Justice said in a statement that the ruling does not change the department's position on the facts.
