US Appeals Court Keeps Injunction Blocking President’s Decision to End DACA

A U.S. appeals court won’t immediately let President Trump end an Obama era program shielding immigrants from deportation

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals decided to keep an injunction blocking Trump’s decision to phase out “DACA”, the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

Traverse City immigration attorney Marcelo Betti says the decision keeps the debate in the courts for now.

“It is the court saying that the decision that the Trump administration made in trying to eliminate the DACA program is reviewable by the courts.”

Betti says it’s widely expected the court of appeals decision could be appealed by the Trump administration all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court.

In the meantime renewals of existing DACA applications must continue.
