Judge Blocks Trump’s Move to End DACA

A federal judge temporarily blocked the Trump administration from ending the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program on Tuesday, declaring that the Department of Homeland Security’s “decision to rescind DACA was based on a flawed legal premise.”

New applications will not be allowed to be submitted under the ruling, however.
