Federal Appeals Court Rules Against Trump Administration’s Rescinding of DACA

A USA federal court of appeals in the state of Virginia has ruled that the Trump administration's decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) immigration program was unlawful, media reported on Friday.

Trump has taken a stern stance against illegal immigration.

The 2-1 decision reversed a lower court's ruling and is in line with a decision from the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on a similar case. The ruling overturns a lower court ruling a judge in Maryland made a year ago, which Trump had previously praised via Twitter.

DACA's fate could be decided by the Supreme Court, which is weighing the Trump administration's appeals of other federal court rulings.

The Department of Justice declined to comment.

The lawsuit before the 4th Circuit centered on a claim that the decision to end DACA needed to follow the Administrative Procedure Act, which outlines how federal agencies can propose and adopt regulations, and that it did not do so. "Yet the department changed course without any explanation for why that analysis was faulty", wrote Judge Albert Diaz, an Obama appointee.

The Supreme Court now has three Trump administration appeals pending that seek to revive the administration's DACA proposal but the justices have so far delayed acting on them.

He said when President Obama announced it, DACA was billed as a use of prosecutorial discretion, not a new policy. Judge Julius Richardson, who was appointed by Trump, dissented. "To hold otherwise permits the Judicial Branch to invade the province of the Executive and impair the carefully constructed separation of powers laid out in our Constitution". DACA is an Obama-era program created to protect from deportation undocumented immigrants brought into the country when they were young, by their parents.

The court found that the administration did not properly explain its decision to end the program and was, therefore, in violation of the act.

To qualify illegal immigrants needed to come to the USA before age 16, have been in the U.S.by June 15, 2007, and have been less than 31 years old when Mr. Obama announced the policy on June 15, 2012.
