Judge: Trump administration must reinstate DACA

A federal judge in Washington, D.C., ruled Friday that a program giving protections to some undocumented immigrants brought to the United States as children must be reinstated.

[post_ads]District Judge John Bates gave the Trump administration 20 days to fully restore the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. The Aug. 23 deadline also gives the government time to appeal the decision.

The judge ruled in April that the government must resume accepting DACA applications, but gave the Department of Homeland Security 90 days to provide a legal justification for ending the Obama-era program, which protects more than 700,000 so-called dreamers. Bates denied the Justice Department's request to reconsider.

"The court has already once given [Department of Homeland Security] the opportunity to remedy these deficiencies -- either by providing a coherent explanation of its legal opinion or by reissuing its decision for bona fide policy reasons that would preclude judicial review," said Bates, "So it will not do so again."

Two other federal judges, in New York and California, previously blocked President Donald Trump's efforts to end DACA on the principle his administration hadn't offered legally adequate reasons to rescind the program.
