Judge reaffirms ruling that DACA must resume

Judge reaffirms ruling that DACA must resume

A federal judge for the United States District Court for the District of Columbia has reaffirmed the Court's conclusion that Trump Administration's repeal of the Obama policy known as DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) was not lawful.

In his April ruling Bates wrote that if the DHS fails to issue a memo that would prove that the program was unlawful and unconstitutional, as insisted by the government, "the Rescission Memo will be vacated in its entirety, and the original DACA program will be restored in full".

Two other federal judges, in NY and California, previously blocked President Donald Trump's efforts to end DACA on the principle his administration hadn't offered legally adequate reasons to rescind the program.

The judge's decision on Friday comes amid high political tension over the Trump administration's hardline immigration policies. Bates' ruling would go further and order the program reopened in its entirety.

DACA is a program that allows for the children of illegal aliens who arrived in the USA before the age of 16 to avoid deportation. Those rulings only required the government to process DACA renewals, not new applications.

Those have been pulled from the iTunes directory, making them no longer searchable or available for download or streaming. The company said it does not "tolerate hate speech", adding that creators that violate its guidelines will be punished .

He said in Friday's ruling, after the 90 days, that neither a memo from Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen nor another government motion in the case provided "a sufficient basis for reconsidering the Court's earlier determination". She relied heavily on the memorandum that her predecessor, Elaine C. Duke, had issued to rescind the program and said the department had the discretion to end the program, just as the department under Obama had exercised discretion to create it. The earlier decisions are pending before appeals courts.

Judge Bates, who was appointed by former US President George W. Bush, said he would not revise his previous ruling because the arguments of President Donald Trump's administration did not override his concerns.

He said the governmnent's case still rests nearly entirely on a one-page memo by Jeff Sessions - and he said that this memo "inadequately explained" its own legal arguments. "Princeton University's continued success as a world-class institution of learning and research depends on our ability to attract talent from all backgrounds, including Dreamers", he said.

"A lasting solution for DREAMers has become an economic imperative and a humanitarian necessity", said Brad Smith, Microsoft's president.
