>> A federal judge ruled that the US government must fully restore the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals or DACA program and start accepting new applications. The latest blow to the Trump administration's efforts to eliminate the program.>> Now, people are taking advantage of DACA and that's a shame.
>> DACA was created in 2012 under former President Barack Obama, and has protected from deportation nearly 800,000 young immigrants brought to the US illegally as children.>> And we need an actual path to citizenship this time. And we're not gonna stop fighting until we get it.>> US District Judge John Bates of Washington DC, giving the Trump administration 20 days to respond to his ruling and appeal if it chooses.
Bates first issued the decision in April. Uttering the federal government to continue DACA, but he delayed that ruling for 90 days to give the US government time to explain, why the program should end. But on Friday, Bates who was appointed by former President George W Bush said, he was sticking to his previous ruling to restart DACA.
Because the Department of Homeland Security had failed to offer a better justification for ending the program. Meanwhile in Texas, another lawsuit is still seeking to revoke DACA.
