Supreme Court rejects Trump’s plans to end DACA to avoid deportation

Supreme Court in its ruling on Thursday has immediately stopped Trump’s bill to ends the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which has allowed nearly 800,000 young people, known as Dreamers, to avoid deportation and remain in the U.S.

Chief Justice John Roberts kicked against it over the swing vote in 5-4 decision, which deals a big legal defeat to President Donald Trump on the issue of immigration, a major focus of his domestic agenda.

Justice Roberts said, that the government failed to give an adequate justification for ending the federal program. The administration could again try to shut it down by offering a more detailed explanation for its action, but the White House might not want to end such a popular program in the heat of a presidential campaign.

Another legal practitioner that joined Justice John Roberts to stopped this illegal bill that Trump’s administration wants to put in place are; Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Stephen Breyer, Elena Kagan, and Sonia Sotomayor.

“We conclude that the acting secretary did violate” the Administrative Procedure Act and that the decision to rescind DACA “must be vacated,” Roberts wrote. In his decision, Roberts called the Trump administration’s “total rescission” of DACA “arbitrary and capricious.”

Robert said this in his speech that Trump had broken the laws governing federal agencies when he ended DACA in 2017. Because the memorandum that recommended its termination did not address crucial parts of the policy.

He, however, pointed out that “it wasn’t necessarily unconstitutional for the Trump administration to terminate DACA, but the way it did so was.”

The opinion that the administration’s Department of Homeland Security could simply revisit its legal strategy on how to unwind DACA in the future.

“The appropriate recourse is, therefore, to remand to DHS so that it may reconsider the problem anew,” Roberts wrote.

The conservative Justices Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, Neil Gorsuch, and Brett Kavanaugh filed opinions that concurred with parts of the majority as well as with parts of the dissent — with several emphasizing that the majority ruling simple punted the issue back to the administration.

“The Court still does not resolve the question of DACA’s rescission,” Alito wrote in his dissent. “Instead, it tells the Department of Homeland Security to go back and try again.”

Thomas, in his dissent, wrote, “Today’s decision must be recognized for what it is: an effort to avoid a politically controversial but legally correct decision.” He added that the court “could have made clear” that a solution to the question over the status of the program must come from Congress through immigration legislation.

“Instead, the majority has decided to prolong DHS’ initial overreach by providing a stopgap measure of its own,” he wrote. “In doing so, it has given the green light for future political battles to be fought in this Court rather than where they rightfully belong — the political branches.”

But, In a swift reaction, Trump said;

The recent court decisions showed the need for new justices, adding that he would release a list of potential nominees by Sept. 1.

Meanwhile, Chad Wolf said, “the DACA program was created out of thin air and implemented illegally.” who is the acting Homeland Security Secretary.


“The American people deserve to have the Nation’s laws faithfully executed as written by their representatives in Congress — not based on the arbitrary decisions of a past administration,” Wolf said in a statement. “This ruling usurps the clear authority of the executive branch to end unlawful programs.”

Although Trump finally bows as Supreme Court rejects his plans to ends the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program(DACA), they called it a wrong decision from Trump’s led-administration as another Democratic lawmaker, business leaders, immigrants, and advocacy groups joined hands to stop this bill.
