U.S. judge orders Trump admin to restore Dreamers program that protects undocumented immigrants

A federal judge in Brooklyn, New York, on Friday, ordered the Trump administration to restore what is known as Dreamers program that protects undocumented immigrants brought to the United States as children.

U.S. District Judge Nicholas Garaufis ordered the Department of Homeland Security to post by Monday a public notice that it will accept petitions for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

DACA shields hundreds of thousands of undocumented immigrants from deportation and allows them to seek jobs in the United States. The program has not accepted new applicants since 2017.

The Supreme Court in June blocked the Donald Trump administration from ending DACA, saying it did not adequately consider its options before rescinding DACA.

The high court left open the possibility for President Trump to attempt to terminate the program.
