Federal appeals court rules a programme that has protected hundreds of thousands of young immigrants from deportation is unlawful but sends case back to a lower court to consider a new Biden administration regulation.
A federal judge in Texas ordered an end to the Obama-era programme that prevented the deportations of some immigrants brought into the US as children.
The legislation coincides with Democratic President Joe Biden's efforts to contain the number of migrants arriving at the US-Mexico border, many of whom are fleeing dangerous conditions in Central America.
Supreme Court rejects President Donald Trump's attempt to end legal protections for 650,000 young immigrants provided in eight-year-old Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals plan.
Presidential press secretary Sarah Huckabee says the ruling against the Trump administration's decision to end Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals programme is a "good news" for smuggling organisation and "horrible news for our national security."
The justices refused to hear the administration's appeal of a federal judge's January 9 injunction that halted Trump's move to end a programme that benefits immigrants known as "Dreamers" implemented in 2012.
Senate inched closer but ultimately fell short of an agreement that would have reopened federal agencies, complicating the beginning of the workweek in America.
