SCOTUS Refuses To Take DACA Case

The Supreme Court dealt a blow to the Trump administration when it declined to hear a case that the White House brought to stop the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. DACA was instituted by the Obama administration to help people who came to the United States undocumented as children and were in danger of being deported to a country they’ve never known. The Trump administration has fought to derail DACA as part of their tough immigration policy. The administration tried to circumvent the lower appeals court but SCOTUS said that it has to go through the 9th circuit court of appeals first. This gives a temporary reprieve to DACA recipients for which a positive decision on the part of SCOTUS could have been disastrous.

All this comes as several states have sued the government citing that removing DACA is unfair. Not that the Trump administration cares about fair, they just care about deporting Latinos. Even though Republicans have promised to discuss a solution to DACA, they haven’t done a single thing toward that. The Democrats for their part sold the Dreamers down the river in the spirit of compromise believing the Republicans that they would revisit the issue with an open mind. Yeah, right.
