US court rules against Trump on DACA immigration plan

A US appeals court in California ruled on Thursday that President Donald Trump's administration must continue a program begun under former President Barack Obama that protects hundreds of thousands of immigrants who were brought into the country illegally as children.
The decision by the San Francisco-based 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals preserves the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program introduced in 2012 that has shielded from deportation a group of immigrants dubbed"Dreamers" and has given them work permits, though not a path to citizenship.
Trump has taken a stern stance against illegal immigration. His administration announced plans in September 2017 to phase out DACA, arguing that Obama exceeded his constitutional powers when he bypassed Congress and created the program. DACA offers protections to roughly 700,000 young adults, mostly Hispanics.
panel rejected the administration's claim that the decision to end DACA was not reviewable by the courts.bia did not expect a decision in Algeria where the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries and other big oil producers are set to convene for the Sept 26-28 talks.
"The Algeria meeting is not a decision making meeting. It is for consultations," a source familiar with Saudi oil officials' thinking told Reuters.
Earlier in the day, Brent and WTI were on track to their largest weekly gain in more than a month after Reuters reported that Saudi Arabia had offered to reduce production if Iran caps its own output this year.
Oil prices are typically volatile ahead of OPEC talks and Friday's session was tempered with caution despite market sentiment on a high this week after the US government reported on Wednesday a third straight weekly drop in crude stockpiles.
