Supreme Court judges announced that in the fall they will hear Trump administration’s arguments to know if he has the “authority” to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA.
DACA and its help to young immigrants
Nearly 700,000 young adults are covered by the program, created during President Obama’s administration, which allows them to live and work legally in the country.
With DACA, the deportation of young immigrants who were brought to the US as children was suspended. In case Trump were allowed to end up the program, these young people would be subject to deportation.
It has been over a year that the litigation about the permanence of the program has been brought in the lower courts, where the Trumps’s administration has had difficulties to provide a valid explanation to its arguments to reverse the program.
Trump and his arguments for judges
Trump and his legal representatives have insisted that he has the authority to rescind DACA policy and that no judge can intervene.
The judges did not agree with this statement and expressed that the revocation of a comprehensive immigration order is subject to review in court. They also noted that Trump administration officials violated federal procedural law by arbitrarily changing a regulatory policy without offering a legitimate explanation.
