Supreme Court’s Order Leaves DACA In Place for Now

American Flag, Social Security Card, and Green Card

The United States Supreme Court denied a request by the Trump administration for the court to quickly hear oral arguments about President Trump’s move to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. The one-sentence USSC order issued on June 3, 2019, denied the administration’s goal to terminate the Dreamer program this year. According to USAToday,

“It now appears unlikely that the Supreme Court will decide whether to consider the DACA program until September at the earliest. That still would give it time to hear the case in the winter and decide it in the spring, in the midst of the 2020 election campaign.” 

The Trump administration has been prevented from ending DACA over the last year by a series of lower court rulings. The program was launched during the Obama administration to shield hundreds of thousands of young undocumented immigrants who were unknowingly illegally brought to the United States as infants from deportation.

President Trump has continued to link the fate of the Dreamers to the approval of his wall along the US-Mexico border.
