Chad Wolf was not legally serving as acting Homeland Security secretary when he signed rules limiting DACA applications and renewals, and those rules are now invalid, a federal judge ruled Saturday.
The Supreme Court blocked a Trump administration attempt to end the program and the memo sought to buy time while the administration decided its next steps.
Saturday’s ruling would be subject to appeal if the US government chooses to do so.
The Government Accountability Office issued a report in August saying Wolf’s appointment was part of an invalid order of succession.
