A federal judge in San Francisco has temporarily blocked the Trump Administration’s plan to end Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and ordered the government to start accepting renewal applications. Judge William Alsup said ending the program was based on a flawed legal premise and creates undue hardship for so-called Dreamers. The Justice Department says they’ll continue to press their case, which could mean going to the U.S. Supreme Court to have the order lifted. We'll discuss Tuesday's ruling.
