U.S. President Donald Trump’s administration said the federal appeals court in San Francisco is taking too long to decide whether it can go ahead with a plan to scrap legal protections for hundreds of thousands of children of undocumented immigrants known as Dreamers.

If the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit doesn’t issue a decision by Oct. 31, the administration will go straight to the Supreme Court for a finding on whether an injunction against the plan should be lifted, the Justice Department said Wednesday in a letter to the appeals court.
