DACA Lawsuit Gets First Appeals Court Hearing

The legal challenge to President Donald Trump’s attempt to end the DACA program has gotten its first hearing in a federal appeals court. The Trump administration announced a phase-out of the program that has granted work permits and protections from deportation for about 700,000 undocumented youths brought to the US as children. That move has so far been blocked by federal judges who issued preliminary injunctions barring the move.
