WASHINGTON, D.C. — (06-18-20) — The U.S. Supreme Court ruled on Thursday to reject the Trump administration’s plan to end DACA, the Obama-era program that shields nearly 700,000 young undocumented immigrants from deportation, upending a key feature of President Trump’s immigration agenda.

In a stunning 5-4 decision, the Supreme Court justices said the Trump administration failed to give an adequate justification for terminating the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, as required by federal law.

“The dispute before the Court is not whether [Department of Homeland Security] may rescind DACA. All parties agree that it may. The dispute is instead primarily about the procedure the agency followed in doing so,” Chief Justice John Roberts wrote for the majority.

The ruling keeps intact a program that is open to an estimated 1.3 million non-citizens who are eligible for DACA by virtue of having been brought to the U.S. as children, and who have maintained residency and meet the education or military service requirements and other criteria.

This has been a week of defeats for the Trump administration as for the third time in 3 days, the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that the LGBTQ community are protected under the Civil Rights And rejecting Trump’s Santuary City Law case.

As of this report, there has been no comment from the White House nor a tweet from President Trump.

UPDATE: President Trump has responded with defiance over today’s U.S Supreme Court decision to block the Trump administration’s plans to eliminate the Obama-era DACA program.
