New Hope for Dreamers!

Supreme Court won't hear Trump bid to end DACA program

On Monday the U.S. Supreme Court refused to hear arguments in respect to the DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) program, temporarily affording DREAMers continued protection under DACA.

The Supreme Court’s stance also relieves pressure on Congress to immediately act on a DACA vote.

President Donald Trump had ended the DACA program, placing up to 800,000 DREAMers — undocumented immigrants who came to the US as children — in jeopardy of being deported to countries of origin many of them have never known.

Under orders from a California federal judge, the Trump administration extended a six-month renewal period until March 5, 2018 for DACA participants. After the March 5th date, DREAMers would have no longer been under DACA protection.

The Supreme Court’s actions on Monday, while not a ruling for or against DACA, is a plus in forestalling escalation of the move to terminate the program.
