A federal judge has blocked Trump from deporting 300,000 immigrants citing racial animus.
A federal judge has blocked the Trump administration from ending a program that protects roughly 300,000 immigrants from deportation. According to US Today, the
Temporary Protected Status, or TPS Program, has allowed people from countries facing natural disasters or civil conflicts like El Salvador, Haiti, Nicaragua, and
Sudan to live and work in the US. In his decision, Judge Edward Chen said the Trump administration's attempts to end TPS raises serious questions about whether or
not racial animus was part of the motivation. The judge then ordered a preliminary injunction which will prevent the deportation of an estimated 240,000 immigrants,
who are facing a series of deportation deadlines starting in November.
