9th Circuit upholds injunction keeping DACA program in place

A federal appeals court in San Francisco on Thursday upheld a preliminary injunction that blocked President Donald Trump’s attempt to end a program that protected undocumented young immigrants from deportation.

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals held a hearing in San Francisco in May about the Trump Administration’s decision last year to end Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals.

DACA, established by President Barack Obama in 2012, enabled nearly 700,000 undocumented immigrants, known as Dreamers, who arrived in the U.S. as children to apply for renewable two-year work permits and postponements of deportation.

California Attorney General Xavier Becerra praised the court’s decision today, calling it a “tremendous victory for our young immigrant Dreamers and the rule of law.”US
