Federal Appeals Court Deals Blow to Trump on DACA
A federal appeals court in San Francisco has ruled against the Trump administration and allowed DACA to continue. The court essentially said that a rule that was created through executive order is not able to be rescinded through executive order.

According to Fox News:

A federal appeals court in San Francisco ruled against the Trump administration Thursday, saying the government cannot immediately end the DACA program that gives young undocumented immigrants a chance to continue living and working in the U.S. without the threat of deportation.

The administration had sought to block an injunction from lower courts that temporarily prevented the government from going ahead with plans to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

“The Executive wields awesome power in the enforcement of our nation’s immigration laws,” the ruling said. “Our decision today does not curb that power, but rather enables its exercise in a manner that is free from legal misconceptions and is democratically accountable to the public.”

The ruling comes just days after the Trump administration asked the Supreme Court to take over three cases concerning pending lawsuits that seek to preserve DACA.

The Trump administration is looking to get a determination from the Supreme Court on the issue and has asked the court to consolidate all of the cases regarding DACA into one case. The Supreme Court recently rejected the Trump administrations attempt to challenge a ruling protecting DACA from February. It is unclear what they will decide to do with this latest ruling.
