Federal judge in Brooklyn allows suit's against Trump's temporizing policy on DACA to go forward

The reasoning behind the ruling seems pretty simple – discrimination. There’s some procedural stuff but not a lot this time.
States have argued that interfering with DACA even conditionally upon Congress interferes with filling positions particularly at universities.
