Maryland joins lawsuit against Trump’s rollback of DACA

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Maryland will sue the Trump administration over its termination of a program that protects illegal immigrants who were brought to the U.S. as children.

The Baltimore Sun reported Monday that Attorney General Brian E. Frosh is joining counterparts in California, Minnesota and Maine to challenge the president’s decision.

Trump Administration officials announced last week that they would roll back the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program over six months. President Barack Obama introduced DACA to shield the young immigrants from deportation.

The lawsuit claims the termination of DACA could result in the federal government reneging on assurances it gave to those who signed up to get work permits under the program.

A separate challenge to the DACA termination was brought last week by 15 other attorneys general. Frosh is not part of that effort.

" But as the plan of the convention aims only at a partial union or consolidation, the State governments would clearly retain all the rights of sovereignty which they before had, and which were not, by that act, EXCLUSIVELY delegated to the United States. "

-- Alexander Hamilton (Federalist No. 32, 3 January 1788)
