Thursday's announcement that the Trump administration was rescinding the policy means the administration will no longer defend the policy in court, stating in a press release that "there is no credible path forward to litigate the now enjoined policy".
The action allows undocumented immigrants who entered the U.S.as children (during a certain time period) to remain in the country, attend school, and work, if they meet certain requirements. Ultimately, Texas handed President Obama his biggest court defeat of all when his unilateral immigration policies were blocked by the U.S. Supreme Court last June. As of 2012, the DACA program has shielded 750,000 children from deportation.
The announcement that the DACA program will continue for the time being, a decision that affects about 800,000 people in the United States, came as the administration formally ended Mr. Obama's attempt to expand it to also cover the parents of the Dreamers.
But raids by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents have caught up many people with minor legal violations and families that have lived in the country for decades.
During his campaign, Trump denounced the program by describing it as an illegal amnesty and vowed to withdraw it as soon has he assumes office.

That said, sweeping executive actions, whether by Obama or Trump, are no way to solve America's immigration problems.
But DACA recipients, known as the "dreamers", may stay.
The program would have provided them a renewable work permit.
Deferred Action for Parents of Americans, or DAPA, set forth a policy that de-prioritized detention and removal proceedings of those undocumented immigrant parents. Under this program, Dreamers were provided with continuous work permit.
"We are encouraged to see the administration's willingness to continue DACA in the short term", she said in a statement.
"We will immediately terminate President Obama'stwo illegal executive amnesties in which he defied federal law and the Constitution to give amnesty to approximately 5 million illegal immigrants", the President said in a major immigration speech on August 31, 2016.
But in an Associated Press interview in April, Trump said his administration is "not after the dreamers, we are after the criminals" and that "The dreamers should rest easy".
