In more immigration news, a California appeals court ruled Thursday that the Trump administration cannot shut down the DACA program, upholding a federal judge’s ruling earlier this year. DACA, or Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, affects the immigration status of some 700,000 formerly undocumented people who were brought to the U.S. as children. Trump announced plans to do away with the program last year and was immediately challenged by lawsuits from a number of states and other groups. The ruling sets the case up for a possible Supreme Court hearing in 2019.
