Supreme Court Upholds Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Program

In a surprise to many, the Supreme Court of the United States issued a ruling blocking President Trump’s attempt to cancel the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (known as DACA).

The Obama Administration had implemented DACA to protect children under the age of 16 years old if they arrived by 2007 and met certain other eligibility requirements. This program protects the rights of nearly 800,000 young people to live in the U.S. without fear of deportation as well as obtain work authorization.

That said, today’s ruling was issued on procedural grounds. All parties agreed in the subject litigation that the Trump Administration can cancel DACA through appropriate Administrative Procedure Act rulemaking. As we enter the 2020 election season, all eyes remain on the White House’s next moves regarding immigration proclamations and new regulations affecting various immigration programs.
