Judge Garaufis said Wolf’s appointment violated the Homeland Security Act of 2002.

He ordered the parties of the case to schedule conferences with the court by Sunday to inform the judge of any planned motions in response to the ruling.

«Today’s decision is another win for DACA recipients and those who have been waiting years to apply to the program for the first time,» wrote Karen Tumlin of the Justice Action Center, who represents DACA recipients in the case.
