A US judge has ordered the Trump administration to fully reinstate a scheme that protects immigrants brought to the country illegally as children from being deported, APA reports citing BBC.

The administration had moved to close the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (Daca) programme to new applicants earlier this year.

But District Judge Nicholas Garaufis on Friday ruled against the restrictions.

He told the administration to announce the full resumption of Daca by Monday.

The Daca programme was introduced by former Democratic President Barack Obama in 2012.

He set it up to help some of the more than 10 million immigrants who as young people entered the US illegally or overstayed a visa.
