The Department of Justice has imposed an Oct. 31 deadline on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit to decide a DACA case, marking the second time it’s taken such an action this year.

The underlying case involves a decision allowing the Obama administration’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals policy to proceed nationwide.
