California Will Sue Trump in Support of DACA
LOS ÁNGELES, California.- California demandó este lunes al gobierno del presidente Donald Trump por la decisión de poner fin en seis meses la Acción Diferida para los Llegados en la Infancia (DACA), programa que protege temporalmente de la deportación a unos 800,000 jóvenes indocumentados beneficiarios.
California sued the Trump administration Monday over its decision to end a program that shields young immigrants from deportation, saying it would be especially hard hit because it has more of the immigrants brought to the U.S. illegally by parents or by parents who overstayed visas than any other U.S. state.
The lawsuit's legal arguments largely mirror those already filed in a lawsuit last week by 15 other states and the District of Columbia. Attorney generals for the states of Maine, Maryland and Minnesota joined California's lawsuit.
California Attorney General Xavier Becerra said California's case is stronger than the first lawsuit, filed last week, because more than 200,000 of the 800,000 participants in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program live in the state.
