U.S. Appeals Court Rules against Trump on DACA Policy

President Donald Trump can not end protections for undocumented immigrants brought to this country as children, according to a federal court on Thursday.

A three-judge panel of the USA 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, based in San Francisco, ruled unanimously in favor of a lower court's preliminary injunction against the administration's attempt to phase out Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals.

Lawsuits by California and others challenging the Trump administration's decision will continue in federal court while the injunction remains in place.

The Justice Department is likely to appeal the ruling to the U.S. Supreme Court, where conservative justices now hold the majority.

DACA proponents have also argued that Trump's planned termination of the program violates federal law requiring adequate notice-and-comment periods before certain federal rules are changed, as well as other constitutional equal protection and due process guarantees. Today's decision exemplifies the importance of the courts in protecting our rights and reminds us why we must continue to fight against President Trump's efforts to stack the courts with narrow-minded elitists pursuing a right-wing ideology.

She said the court is not trying to infringe on the president's power regarding immigration law and instead wants to enable the exercise of that authority "in a manner that is free from legal misconceptions and is democratically accountable to the public".

"In this ninth circuit decision, the court reviewed 100 years of presidential administration decisions that are immigration-related", says Duggal, who adds that based on that analysis, the three-judge panel found former President Obama had the authority to create DACA with an executive order. The administration cited a 2015 ruling by another US appeals court that blocked a separate immigration policy implemented by Obama.

A lawsuit by a group of young Americans, which asserts the USA government is harming them by having created a national energy system that causes climate change, is on hold again after a federal appeals court Thursday granted the Trump administration's motion for a temporary stay.

In January, U.S. District Judge William Alsup granted a request to keep DACA operational while its future was being litigated.

An email to the U.S. Department of Justice was not immediately returned.

In its filing on Monday, the federal government complained that the 9th Circuit had heard oral argument in the dispute in mid-May but had not yet issued its ruling. The 9th Circuit rejected that notion. The Trump administration is expected to appeal this decision until the issue reaches the highest court.

Aided by fellow Republicans in the U.S. Senate, Trump has made it a top priority to rapidly appoint judges in a bid to make the federal judiciary more conservative.
