A federal judge ruled against the Trump administration’s decision to end DACA on Tuesday night.

U.S. District Judge John D. Bates said Tuesday night that the Department of Homeland Security’s decision to end the Obama-era DACA “was unlawful and must be set aside.”

The Trump administration has 90 days to come up with a better argument for ending DACA.

DACA is unconstitutional to begin with; Obama couldn’t even get it through a Dem-controlled Congress.

WaPo reported:

“U.S. District Judge John D. Bates on Tuesday called the government’s decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program “virtually unexplained” and therefore “unlawful.” However, he stayed his ruling for 90 days to give the Department of Homeland Security a chance to provide more solid reasoning for ending the program.

Bates is the third judge to rule against Trump administration attempts to rescind DACA, which provides two-year, renewable work permits and deportation protections for about 690,000 “dreamers,” undocumented immigrants brought to this country as children.

In his decision, Bates said the decision to phase out the program starting in March “was arbitrary and capricious because the Department failed adequately to explain its conclusion that the program was unlawful.”

“Each day that the agency delays is a day that aliens who might otherwise be eligible for initial grants of DACA benefits are exposed to removal because of an unlawful agency action,” Bates wrote.

Judge John D. Bates was first appointed by George W. Bush is 2001.
