A in temporarily blocked the Donald Trump's administration from banning the for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program that protects certain illegal immigrants from deportation on Tuesday.

In a ruling, as reported by the Hill, said that the US' Department of Homeland Security's decision to revoke was based on a "flawed legal premise."

Alsup also said that DACA, initiated by former US must remain in place, while litigation over Trump's decision to end the program is still under consideration.

Supporters of rejoiced and celebrated the ruling in the streets of on the federal court's decision.

"Dreamers' lives were thrown into chaos when the tried to terminate the program without obeying the Today's ruling is a huge step in the right direction", said

Trump had announced in September that he would repeal the program, which allows certain immigrants who arrived in the U.S. illegally as children, to stay and work without fear of deportation.

In a bipartisan immigration meeting chaired by Trump, DACA was among the issues discussed.

The US had once said, that he wanted a 'bill of love' to address DACA, and in another instance, an introduction of a clean DACA bill, while dealing with other issues, like border security.

The latest ruling comes at a time, when Trump is advocating against illegal migrants living in the US and is lobbying to build a border, along the US-border to stop its infiltration.
