In Roberts opinion, SCOTUS overturns Trump decision to rescind DACA--ABA Journal

| No Comments


The U.S. Supreme Court has overturned the Trump administration's decision to phase out a program that deferred deportation for some immigrants.

The decision to rescind the program known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals was arbitrary and capricious, the Supreme Court said in a majority opinion Thursday by Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr.

The program, established during the Obama administration, defers deportation and grants work permits for immigrants brought to the country illegally as children. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security decided to phase out the program in 2017.
