A judge in Texas has refused to rule against the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) programme, despite stating in his judgement that he is not convinced of the legality of the program itself.  Rather, his decision was based on the reasoning that it is already in effect and that to roll it back would cause hardship to many.  He effectively called on Congress to take action to save the popular program and not rely on intervention from the courts.
