US District Judge Nicholas Garaufis in Brooklyn ruled that the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA, can not end in March as planned, a victory for state attorneys general and immigrants who sued the Republican administration.
Trump was referring to deadline after which he has said a programme protecting young immigrants from deportation would end.
The administration will seek a total of $18 billion for fiscal 2018 and fiscal 2019 to build a U.S. -Mexico border wall, the Office of Management and Budget said Sunday, a request tied to ongoing congressional negotiations over the fate of "Dreamers" enrolled in the expiring Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.
Nationwide, poll data indicate that large majorities do support doing something to protect the "Dreamers", but that has been true for some time, and up to now has not made a difference in getting something done in Congress.

From there it was one-way traffic and a second try soon arrived when some delightful interplay led to scrum-half Murray darting over to score.
During court arguments, Garaufis said he couldn't ignore Trump's "recurring, redundant drumbeat of anti-Latino commentary" or put out of his mind how the commander-in-chief's words could factor into DACA's demise.
"Defendants indisputably can end the DACA program", Garaufis wrote.
The judge also found that the administration's position that the program was unconstitutional seemed "internally contradictory" with the decision to continue to process renewal applications that had already been filed while the program was wound down.
A second U.S. judge has blocked the White House from ending a programme barring the deportation of immigrants brought illegally to the United States as children. The justices have yet to decide whether to hear the case.
"DACA was implemented unilaterally after Congress declined to extend these benefits to this same group of illegal aliens". But the consolidated NY lawsuit ― which combines a case originally filed on behalf of DACA recipient Martín Jonathan Batalla Vidal with a suit filed by attorneys general from 15 Democratic-led states and the District of Columbia ― argues that the administration violated DACA recipients' due process rights and the terms of the Administrative Procedure Act when changing the policy.
