Judge: DHS head didn’t have authority to suspend DACA

Trump vows to sign executive order to change immigration laws

DACA deadline for U.S. immigrants arrives with less urgency

SAN DIEGO – A program that temporarily shields hundreds of thousands of young people from deportation was scheduled to end Monday but court orders have forced the Trump administration to keep issuing renewals. In September, Trump said he was ending the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program but gave Congress six months to develop a legislative fix.

Appeals court takes early look at lawsuits in DACA cases

NEW YORK – A federal appeals court in New York agreed Friday to take an early look at some legal issues surrounding President Donald Trump’s decision to end a program protecting some young immigrants from deportation. Two lawsuits filed in Brooklyn have sought to block the Republican president from ending the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, program, which has protected about 800,000 people who were brought to the U.S. illegally as children or came with families who overstayed visas. It currently includes hundreds of thousands of college-age students.

DACA allows illegal immigrants who entered the country before their 16th birthday to work or pursue higher education without fear of deportation if they have not committed serious crimes and have attended school or joined the military. They are in the country through no fault of their own and have little or no connection to their birthplaces.
