A federal judge in New York has ruled President Donald Trump's administration didn't offer "legally adequate reasons" for ending a program that spared many immigrants from deportation if they were brought to the US as children.
US District Judge Nicholas Garaufis said in an order issued today the Republican president "indisputably" has the power to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program but relied on flawed legal positions in doing so.
The judge ordered Trump's administration to allow people already in the DACA program to continue enjoying protections. He declined to extend the program for new applicants.
