Maryland's Attorney General Brian Frosh joined three other states in a lawsuit against the Trump Administration for ending the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

 

Attorney General Frosh made the announcement Tuesday.

 

Maryland, California, Maine and Minnesota filed the lawsuit claiming the end of DACA could result in the government revoking assurances provided to immigrants who signed up for work permits under the program.

 

According to officials, there are nearly 10,000 current DACA recipients working and going to school in Maryland.
