Judge orders reopening of DACA after 90-day delay

A Washington federal trial judge's ruling Tuesday against the Trump administration's move to end a program that protects certain immigrants from deportation is getting a fair amount of attention for its substance and for the fact the decision was written by a Republican-appointed judge.

The Trump administration had asked the U.S. Supreme Court to directly review an injunction issued by a previous judge, U.S. District Judge William Alsup of San Francisco.

The judge imposed a 90-day delay on his own ruling to give the government a chance to reargue its case, but for now the ruling stands as the most severe blow yet to Mr. Trump's phaseout. The decision affects close to 17,000 Indians. While the Bates joke is Swift's first in the text of chapter 1, Judge Bates's joke takes its place in a long line brought to us by our robed masters, and not just on DACA.

If DHS can not produce a better argument for why DACA was illegal in 90 days it would have to process new applications for the programme, Bates wrote.

But Bates said the Trump administration had failed to rebut findings in 2014 by the same agency under Obama, explained in detail after an extensive study, that the program was within the president's authority to decide to deport certain groups of undocumented immigrants, those posing the greatest dangers, and allow others to remain.

Bates said in his opinion that he was postponing his order to allow the Justice Department "an opportunity to better explain" its decision to wind down the program. They received a two-year reprieve from deportation that can be renewed.

According to South Asian Americans Leading Together (SAALT), a non-profit organization, a total of 5,500 Indians and Pakistanis are covered under DACA, and an additional 17,000 from India are eligible for it. As of March 31, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services reported that more than 9,000 people with expired DACA status had renewal applications still pending. United States from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit. Bates' order also does not effect the older court decisions that have made it so current enrollees are able to renew their DACA. "Promoting and enforcing the rule of law is vital to protecting a nation, its borders, and its citizens". When the decision to end the program for so-called Dreamers was announced in September, the Justice Department cited "unconstitutional" executive overreach by former president Barack Obama. "The Justice Department will continue to vigorously defend this position, and looks forward to vindicating its position in further litigation", spokesperson Devin O'Malley said in the statement.
