California Attorney General Xavier Becerra announced the state, along with attorneys general for Minnesota, Maryland and ME, is filing a lawsuit against the Trump administration for ending the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.
Becerra filed the lawsuit in federal court Monday, alleging that the repeal violates DACA recipients' rights to due process.
Almost 800,000 people who illegally entered the U.S.as children years ago have been protected by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA, in recent years. President Trump vowed to undo DACA.
Nationally, since its inception in 2012, DACA has provided 800,000 young immigrants temporary relief from deportation and legal access to employment. "We'll be able to provide free services for people within their communities, in locations they are already comfortable with".
During a breakfast with reporters held by the Christian Science Monitor, Marc Short, the White House's director of legislative affairs, was asked if President Donald Trump will demand that Congress tie legislative restoration of DACA's policies to funding for a border wall.

No Conservatives opposed the move but five, as well as two Tories acting as tellers, did not walk through the voting lobbies. Justice Secretary David Lidington said some of the criticism had been "exaggerated up to and beyond the point of hyperbole".
US President Donald Trump's decision to end amnesty for hundreds of thousands of immigrants brought illegally to the country as children will threaten the lives of thousands of vulnerable families, an analyst in OH says. DACA recipients are often called "Dreamers" in reference to the failed legislation. Second, do we need a complete revamping of our political system, which is completely paralyzed at this time, failing to address our country's many problems? Although many conservatives support Trump's decision, it is encouraging to see that many people oppose the decision.
The Justice Department has said deporting the so-called "Dreamers" is not a priority.
The first major lawsuit by a university to protect the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program has been filed by a school whose top official helped create it.
U.S. Attorney General Jeff Session announced that new applications are being halted and the program will end in six months if Congress does not take action. "We should not be targeting young people who are working, going to school, paying taxes and contributing to this country - the country they grew up in and the only home they've ever known".
Napolitano said she hopes that Congress will pass a permanenent solution on immigration.
