Statement A.G. Schneiderman On Federal Court Ruling Granting Preliminary Injunction in DACA case

Source: New York AG Official Statement

Today, a federal judge granted Attorney General Schneiderman and his fellow Attorneys Generalís motion for a preliminary injunction to block President Trumpís rescission of DACA. Attorney General Schneiderman leads the coalition of 17 AGs that sued in September 2017 to defend DACA and protect DREAMers. The court heard arguments on Attorney General Schneidermanís motion for preliminary injunction on January 30th, 2018.

Attorney General Schneiderman released the following statement:

ďFederal courts from coast to coast have now reviewed the record and reached the same conclusion: President Trumpís decision to rescind DACA was illegal.

Todayís federal court ruling is a victory for the over 42,000 New York Dreamers and more than 700,000 Dreamers across the country. There is much more work ahead to permanently preserve DACA and protect the millions of American families, businesses, hospitals, and universities that depend on Dreamers every day to succeed, but today is an important step forward in that fight.

Todayís ruling reflects not only the illegality of the Trump Administrationís move to rescind DACA, but also the clear and demonstrable benefits DACA provides to New Yorkers across our great state.

I am proud to lead a coalition of 17 state attorneys general who have been fighting in court since September to protect Dreamers and preserve this vital program.

4. includes court order pdf

The press release includes a link to the 55 page "Amended Memorandum & Order & Preliminary Injunction".

The court takes care to outline "what this order is not".
