The Wall Street Journal: DACA ordered temporarily restored by second federal judge

A second federal judge has ordered the Trump administration to temporarily restore an Obama-era program that gives protections to hundreds of thousands of undocumented immigrants who entered the U.S. as children.

The nationwide injunction by a federal judge in Brooklyn comes one month after a similar ruling by a San Francisco federal judge stopped the Trump administration from ending the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA.

The Supreme Court could announce as early as Friday whether it will take up the issue. The Justice Department appealed the San Francisco decision to both the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals and directly to the Supreme Court.

The Trump administration could appeal the Brooklyn ruling to the Second U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New York. The possibility of dueling appeals-court rulings from the two injunctions would make the Supreme Court more likely to hear the issue, legal experts say.
