A federal appeals court says President Trump cannot end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals – or DACA [[DAH-kuh]] – program. As you’ll recall, DACA is the Obama-era policy that protects hundreds of thousands of so-called Dreamers, illegal immigrants who were brought to the US illegally as children.
The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals agreed with a lower court ruling that Trump lacks the authority to veto DACA. The Trump administration is expected to appeal the ruling to the Supreme Court – though the Justice Department hasn’t commented on the decision.
Of course, back when Mr. Trump decided to pull the plug on the program in September 2017 – he urged Congress to pass legislation to solve the Dreamers issue, but nothing has been accomplished.
What do you guys think f this decision?
