Second judge rules against Trump administration on ending DACA

14 February 2018

Trump was referring to a deadline he announced past year to end a program protecting young immigrants from deportation, formally known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA.

U.S. District Judge Nicholas Garaufis of the Eastern District of NY issued his own nationwide stay to the attempt last September to wind down the program aimed at protecting immigrants that arrived as youth.

Before Garaufis, San Francisco Federal Judge William Alsup imposed a preliminary injunction last month.

He even used Mr. Trump's own tweets as evidence that the DACA program was ended precipitously, pointing to President Trumps's claims that he could "revisit this issue" as proof the program could have been continued.

Congress is trying to negotiate a plan to continue or modify DACA, but no breakthrough has been announced. If Congress doesn't come up with an agreement to preserve the program, the administration has said, it doesn't expect to extend the March 5 deadline for DACA protections to expire.

USA backs Israel over Syria airstrikes
The Israeli military said early assessments indicated the jet had been shot down by Syrian fire, but this was still unconfirmed. He said that while Israel had no interest in further escalation it was prepared to "extract a heavy price" for such aggression.

Undocumented immigrants brought to the country as children, known as DREAMers, protest in front of the Senate side of the U.S. Capitol on December 6, 2017, to urge Congress to pass a bill to protect them from deportation.

Shortly after that order, the Trump administration formally asked the Supreme Court to review the lower court's decision.

A Brooklyn federal judge is blocking the Trump Administration from pulling back the Dreamers immigration program, saying the government did not provide adequate explanations for the abrupt about-face.

Under the ruling, the administration does not need to process new applicants for DACA.

Because President Barack Obama created the program by executive action, Trump has the authority to scrap it.

The visit came after the weekend's incident, in which an Iranian drone was detected over Israeli airspace in the Golan Heights. Iran's relations with neighboring and regional states have always been based on interaction and collaborations, he added.

The program's March 5 expiration date is not set in concrete, however - a San Francisco judge's injunction has at least temporarily blocked removal of DACA protections ordered by Trump late previous year.

"We don't want them in and right now we're working on DACA, we're working on immigration bills and we're making them tough", Trump said.

Since the September announcement, the US Department of Homeland Security has stopped accepting new applications.
