Another Federal Judge Blocks Trump’s Attempt To End DACA
The Trump administration’s continuous attempt to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program has been stopped in its trails once again. On Tuesday, a federal judge ordered the Trump administration to continue taking DACA applications.
U.S. District Judge John Bates, who was appointed by George W. Bush, became the third federal judge to reject Donald Trump’s explanation for ending DACA. Bates ruled the decision “virtually unexplained.”
Bates ordered the Trump administration to not only continue DACA, but to accept new applications as well, giving people who had never applied for the program a chance to do so.
The administration has been given 90 days to come up with a better explanation to end the program.
