15 states, District of Columbia sue US govt over DACA

WEB DESK

TRUMP DONALDIn the United States, 15 states and the District of Columbia have sued the US government to block President Donald Trump’s plan to end protection against deportation for young immigrants.

The lawsuit filed yesterday in federal court in Brooklyn says rescinding Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program(DACA) will injure state-run colleges and universities, upset workplaces and damage companies and economies that include immigrants covered under the program.

It says, the consequence of the president’s animus-driven decision is that approximately 800,000 persons who have availed themselves of the program will ultimately lose its protections” and be exposed to deportation.

The law suit was filed by states New York, Massachusetts, Washington, Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Hawaii, Illinois, Iowa, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont and Virginia states.

Meanwhile, Attorney General Jeff Sessions said on Tuesday that the program will end in six months so Congress can have time to find a legislative solution for people in the program. US President, Donald Trump has repealed the DACA programme that granted work permits to immigrants who arrived in the country illegally as children.
