A second U.S. judge on Tuesday blocked President Donald Trumps decision to end a program that protects immigrants brought to the United States illegally as children from deportation.
U.S. District Judge Nicholas Garaufis in Brooklyn ruled that the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA, cannot end in March as planned, a victory for state attorneys general and immigrants who sued the Republican administration.
The plaintiffs had argued that the administration violated federal law by cutting off a program that hundreds of people relied on with little explanation.
In the ruling on Tuesday, Garaufis said the Trump administration could eventually rescind the DACA program. However, the reasons it gave last year for winding down the program were too arbitrary and could not stand, the judge said.
Garaufis ordered the government to process both initial requests for DACA status, as well as renewals, on the same terms as had been in place before the administration made its announcement last September.

What they are really doing is blocking a resolution of the DACA fight. Fine by me. I dont want to give them legal status anyway.
Dis judge don’ need no stinkin’ Constitution thingy.
A Democrat Imperial Edict should be upheld!
So another judge blocks executive-branch adherence to the US Constitution.
Who, besides Judge Goofis, is the other judicial tyrant?
Since it was never a Law, you can’t be charged by ignoring it....and the Judge.
so following the law i not enough reason
TRUMP MUST REASSERT HIS AUTHORITY OVER IMMIGRATION POLICIES!
How did Obangi get away with implementing DACA in the first place?
It is SETTLED LAW that DACA is unconstitutional - therefore it is ILLEGAL to continue it.
F these progressive judges who demand rule of law when they want it and wanton abandonment of it when they dont.
If they want a lawless society lets give them one.
I thought DACA was, itself, illegal.
Um, right there in the name it says “Deferred Action”. The “action” is deportation, and “deferred” means “postponed temporarily”. Well, the postponement is over, GTFO.
Trump has a pen and a phone too. Ki$$ My A**.
Can’t enforce or uphold an unconstitional act, order or law...
And it brings the issue front and center forcing the Dems to favor illegals over citizens.
This tyrant in a robe has no standing, either.
Lock both up in GITMO incommunicado!
This is odd. I do not remember ever seeing this guy’s name on a ballot for POTUS.
