A federal judge in Maryland on Monday struck down a a challenge to President Donald Trump’s decision to end protections for undocumented immigrants, stating that while he does not agree with Trump’s move, it is not his job to set immigration policy.
“This Court does not like the outcome of this case, but is constrained by its constitutionally limited role to the result that it has reached,” Judge Roger Titus wrote in his very revealing opinion. “Hopefully, the Congress and the President will finally get their job done.”
Titus’ ruling strikes down a challenge from a number of individuals, known as Dreamers, along with a number of immigrant rights groups. While unsuccessful, other federal court ruling have kept aspects of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals in place, including allowing for people already under the approval to apply for renewals.
