MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Seven US states, Texas, Alabama, Arkansas, Louisiana, Nebraska, South Carolina and West Virginia, filed a lawsuit against the administration of US President Donald Trump over its failure to remove the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) migration program introduced by the administration of former President Barack Obama, local media reported.
Trump, in fact, opposes DACA and his administration announced in September that it would end the program in spring. However, federal judge John Bates ordered the Trump administration to resume DACA program in 90 days unless it adequately explains the decision to end the immigration program.
On September 5, 2017, US Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced DACA's termination with a six-month delay to allow the authorities to close pending applications and renewals, and give the US Congress a chance to pass legislation to make DACA permanent.
Shortly after becoming a president in January of 2017, Trump signed an executive order to initiate the border wall project.
