Illegal Immigration Group CASA De Maryland SUES Trump Over Ending DACA in Maryland

CASA de Maryland, along with eight other groups and more than a dozen individuals, filed suit in a Maryland federal court against President Donald Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions, in addition to four government agencies – U.S. Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and U.S. Customs and Border Protection – and their department heads.

The lawsuit argues that the termination of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program didn’t follow the necessary procedures, and is discriminatory against Mexicans and Central Americans. It also says the decision violates the Fifth Amendment because the administration is walking back a guarantee that sensitive information provided on DACA applications won’t be used for enforcement purposes.
