Supreme Court Rejects Trump’s Plan to End DACA

WASHINGTON — The U.S. Supreme Court dealt a big blow to President Trump immigration policies ruling Thursday that the Trump administration cannot carry out its plan to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, DACA, which has allowed nearly 800,000 young people, known as “Dreamers,” to avoid deportation and remain in the U.S. The decision is a big legal defeat for President Donald Trump on the issue of immigration, which has been a major focus of his domestic agenda. The ruling said the government failed to give an adequate justification for ending the federal program. The administration could try again 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.

As a result of the defeat, President Trump is calling the Supreme Court’s decision on DACA “horrible” and asked if the justices “don’t like him.”

Trump called the 5-to-4 decision a shotgun blast to the face of Republicans and conservatives. He warned that he should be reelected so he can appoint more justices or Americans will lose their Second Amendment rights.
