SAN FRANCISCO (AP) – A U.S. judge grilled a Justice Department attorney over the Trump administration’s justification for ending a program protecting some young immigrants from deportation. During a court hearing Wednesday, U.S. District Judge William Alsup questioned whether the administration had conducted a thorough review before the decision. He says beneficiaries of former President Barack Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program had come to rely on it and faced a real and palpable hardship from its loss. Justice Department attorney Brad Rosenberg says the administration considered the effects of ending DACA and decided to phase it out over time instead of cutting it immediately. Alsup is considering five lawsuits seeking to block President Donald Trump from rescinding DACA. He’s also considering a government request to dismiss the suits.
