Supreme Court Refuses to Hear Trump Challenge on DACA

“The Supreme Court on Monday delivered a blow to the Trump administration by refusing to hear the government’s challenge to a lower court ruling that has temporarily blocked the administration from winding down the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program,” The Hill reports.

Washington Post: “Federal district court judges in California and New York have issued nationwide injunctions against ending the program, siding with states and organizations challenging the administration’s rescission. The court orders effectively block the Trump administration from ending the program on March 5, as planned.”

Axios: “The decision essentially makes the March 5th deadline meaningless, and there will be much less incentive for lawmakers to reach an agreement soon. Until a final decision on the case, which experts say isn’t expected for another year, current DACA recipients will be able to continue to renew their DACA protections.”
