Napolitano sues Trump administration over DACA

Former Arizona Gov. Janet Napolitano has filed a lawsuit on behalf of the University of California against the Trump administration over its decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

Napolitano, who helped craft DACA when she was secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, joins 16 states who have also filed legal action against the Trump’s announcement decision on DACA.  According to Associated Press reporter Bob Christie, the states that filed a suit against Trump allege the decision was a result of racial bias.

Arizona Capitol Times reporter Jeremy Duda told Arizona Horizon that DACA might not be brought to an end, thanks to a bipartisan effort in Congress. “I think there’s enough Republicans who support this,” Duda said.
