Trump turns to US Supreme Court in immigrant document fight

Posted: Updated:

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - The Trump administration is asking the U.S. Supreme Court to block a federal judge's order requiring it to disclose all emails, letters and other documents it considered in its decision to end a program protecting young immigrants from deportation.

In a court filing Friday, attorneys for the U.S. Department of Justice say the order by U.S. District Court Judge William Alsup in San Francisco is too broad and would require the administration to turn over protected and nonpublic documents.

More than a dozen states along with the University of California and several immigrants are suing the administration over its decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA.

The cases have been mired in a dispute over documents that the plaintiffs are seeking, as they try to substantiate their claims against the administration.
