A federal judge in Maryland has sided with the Trump administration over a lawsuit challenging the Justice Department’s ability to rescind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.
While a major win for the Trump administration, the decision does not affect the current status of DACA. The program is still in place because other courts have handed down injunctions mandating the program continue while legal challenges to Trump’s decision to end the program continue. The administration originally set a March 5 deadline for the end of DACA.
Current recipients are able to apply for renewal while the cases are pending, but no new illegal immigrants who would otherwise be covered by the program can apply.
The Maryland judge slammed his colleagues decisions to prevent DACA from ending and said they had chosen to push their own political beliefs instead of accepting the administration’s decision.
Titus also praised the Trump administration’s strategy to wind the program down over the course of half a year instead of doing so in a shorter period.
The Maryland judge’s decision is expected to give the Department of Justice more support in its appeals that the administration was justified in ending DACA.
