U.S. District Judge Nicholas Garaufis of the Eastern District of NY issued his own nationwide stay to the attempt last September to wind down the program aimed at protecting immigrants that arrived as youth.
The ruling echoes that of US District Judge William Alsup in San Francisco, who ordered the administration to resume accepting renewal applications in January. A bipartisan offer by six senators that Trump rejected would have made citizenship possible for the 690,000 "Dreamers" registered under the program, nicknamed DACA, which shields immigrants who came to the U.S.as children and stayed here illegally.
The Senate on Monday evening started debate on the future of DACA recipients, often called "Dreamers".
Mardi Gras in SWLA keeps family first
Who organizes and pays for Mardi Gras? Viles says 46 tons of beads get trapped in city catch basins after the parades each year. When they were unable to do that, they settled for the next best thing by throwing a Mardi Gras celebration in his memory.
The justice department has said no current Daca recipients will be affected by the decision to scrap the scheme before 5 March 2018, but no new applications will be accepted.
Many lawmakers are uneasy about what might happen to the Dreamers after March 5, and Democrats - and Trump himself - are using that uncertainty as leverage to help force a deal.
Garaufis wrote in Tuesday's order that the administration's decision to end DACA appeared to be based on the "erroneous" conclusion by Sessions that the program was unconstitutional and in violation of other federal laws.

They accuse President Rodrigo Duterte of human rights abuses and carrying out unlawful killings amid his anti-drug campaign. The country is also regularly battered by typhoons.
"We don't want them in and right now we're working on DACA, we're working on immigration bills and we're making them tough", Trump said.
The judge also concluded that the program had to be continued beyond the scheduled end date next month, because it would have a deep negative impact on the lives of hundreds of thousands of younger immigrants who had been brought to the United States as children by their parents, and had lived productive and useful lives as they grew up.
Under the judge's order, the government is required to continue processing DACA renewal requests for people who already are enrolled in the program and those whose enrollment lapsed before September 5, 2017. "As such, it was an unlawful circumvention of Congress, and was susceptible to the same legal challenges that effectively ended DAPA", O'Malley said.
After FBI report on agent's death, Cornyn warns against jumping to conclusions
President Trump tweeted about the death, writing, "Border Patrol Officer killed at Southern Border, another badly hurt". But the F.B.I. report makes clear that the authorities knew very little in the moments after the episode.
A federal judge in NY ruled Tuesday that the government must fully restart the Obama-era DACA deportation amnesty and accept brand new applicants as well as renewals, throwing a potential wrench in the ongoing debate over the fate of "Dreamers" on Capitol Hill.
