WASHINGTON - A Federal Judge says the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program should be fully restored.
That's the ruling Friday from District Judge John Bates in Washington, D.C.
Bates says the Trump Administration has yet to justify its proposal to end DACA.
He's giving the White House 20 days to appeal.
The decision comes as a related case unfolds in Texas.
That sets up the possibility of conflicting rulings.
DACA is an Obama-era program.
It protects about 800,000 undocumented immigrants from deportation.
They were brought to the U.S. as children.
