>> In a ruling President Trump is blasting on Twitter as unfair, a federal judge has order the US Government to restart a program protecting 700,000 illegal immigrants from deportation. Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals or DACA grants legal status to undocumented immigrants brought to the US when they were kids.
The Justice Department moved to end the program last year, arguing the Obama Order was an example of executive overreach. But a judge in San Francisco ruled late Tuesday that the government must continue to renew existing DACA applications while the case is litigated.>> If we do the right bill here, we are not very far away, we've done most of it.
>> The decision coming just hours after Trump met with law makers from both parties in an effort to reach a deal on DACA. In an extraordinary move, the White House allowed cameras to film nearly an hour of the negotiations.

And so it's difficult for the Democrats in Congress and then moderate Republicans who more moderate on the immigration issue.

>> But the judge's decision late Tuesday night may have changed the equation. President Trump, on Wednesday, attacked the decision tweeting, it shows everyone how broken and unfair our Court System is when the opposing side in a case, such as DACA, always runs to the 9th Circuit, and almost always wins before being reversed by higher courts.
The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals jurisdiction is from Arizona to Alaska. But both immigration advocates and those favoring immigration restrictions say court's decision is not a solution. They say Congress needs to act.
