2nd federal judge orders Trump administration to accept DACA renewals

McConnell Interview

Judge Nicholas G. Garaufis of the US District Court for the Eastern District of NY issued an injunction barring the Trump administration's plans to end the program on Tuesday.

Pressing Democrats to accept an immigration plan along the lines of one endorsed by President Donald Trump, GOP Senators unveiled the details of their plan to address the future of illegal immigrant "Dreamers", a 592 page, almost $100 billion measure that focuses mainly on new efforts at border security, limits on family migration, and an end to the Diversity Visa Lottery program.

The administration gave Dreamers until October 5th to reapply for their permits.

Ahead of his ruling Tuesday, Garaufis acknowledged it would be best if elected officials - rather than judges - settled on a solution for DACA.

Trump's refusal to consider other bills, at least in advance of something passing, could be a death knell for anything the Senate passes if he does not encourage the House to take it up.

Garaufis also said the program was based in part on the "plainly incorrect factual premise" that the program was illegal. He also stated that the termination of DACA ordered by the President Trump was arbitrary and capricious.

If the decision is allowed to go into effect prior to a full adjudication on the merits, there is no way the court can "unscramble the egg" and undo the damage caused by what, on the record before it, appears to have been a patently arbitrary and capricious decision.




Sixteen states, including NY, and Washington DC sued the Trump administration in September to block the administration's move to end the programme.

The case landed in the NY court after, when on September 5th Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced that the administration would end DACA on March 5th, NY Attorney Eric Schneiderman filed a lawsuit against the federal government saying the DACA repeal was based on "racial animus" against Latinos.

"Today's ruling reflects. the illegality of the Trump administration's move to rescind DACA".

The US department of justice didn't have an immediate comment on the decision. "Wouldn't it be great if we could finally, after so many years, solve the DACA puzzle. We have been confused and at the end of the day, I think they've been using us as pawns", he added.

Skipping input from the Ninth Circuit, the U.S. Supreme Court has already opted to hold a hearing on Alsup's DACA ruling.

"The Tuesday Trump versus the Thursday Trump, after the base gets to him", is how Senator Jeff Flake, R-Ariz, a proponent of compromise, describes the president and the impact conservative voters and his hard-right advisers have on him.

The administration is asking the justices to hear arguments and rule by the end of their term in June.
