WASHINGTON — The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday declined to hear the Trump administration’s appeal of a federal judge’s ruling that requires the government to keep the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program going.
Under a lower court order that remains in effect, the Department of Homeland Security must continue to accept renewal applications from the roughly 700,000 young people who are currently enrolled in the program, known as DACA. The administration had intended to shut the program down by March 5, but that deadline is now largely meaningless.
In a brief order, the court said simply, “It is assumed the court of appeals will act expeditiously to decide this case.”
An interesting issue.
DACA an executive order was given a pass instead of congress filing suit against the president who clearly overstepped his authority.
Congress establishes law, not the president.
If the appeals court agrees with the lower country ruling you can expect the SCOTUS see the case again.
Should the appeals court uphold the ruling, the SCOTUS fail to hear the case the premise of Executive orders being cancelled by another president rule comes into question.
This is absolutely insane. The president has the authority to overturn previous executive orders. He should just direct DHS to ignore and deport. Let these illegals file lawsuits from their home countries and tie up the courts from abroad.
Makes you wonder doesn’t it, snicker.
Yeah! Obama said he did not have the authority to do (he was correct) it but he did it. It was illegal and the courts are saying that illegal is fine.
US presidential history did not begin with Obama, and presidents have been issuing EO’s since and including Washington, I think with FDR issuing the most. There’s no telling how many EO’s have been issued that had they been challenged may have been found to be extra-constitutional.
And how many EO’s bypassed congress establishing law???
DACA is the subject here. Obama said he could not do it and the law agreed. He did it anyway.
Diversion is everything to monte.
Right, and it stands, even after he’s gone. But anyway, I thought they all get deported on the 5th?
Didn’t hear the leftists progressive 5th circuit once again is practicing judicial activism
The SCOTUS will certainly get it’s turn again after the appeal court hears it.
We have too many pointless lawyers and judges in this country. We need to scale back the amount of lying blood suckers we have in this country at all levels.
We should also place a lifetime ban on lawyers entering politics.
Well… I would say for every useless law that gets eliminated that should equal at least 2 lawyers nationwide…
We have far too many democratically appointed judges that overlook the merits of the case and act on their political views and the hell with the law . If DACA is not a law and wasn’t approved by congress the court should rule to END it !
No doubt it will end up that way. While I wish the SC had handled this differently, it is not their regular order except in emergencies to jump the appeals process…
This should have gone to the courts when Obama implemented it.
Yet congress was fine with the over reach and is still fine with it.
Start helping to build a viable third party.
It wouldn’t include you as your progressive to the max.
Or it would never include most of the people here if it were progressive and included you.
Who pray tell would that be… Bernie and friends?.. you can admit it… your version of ‘independent’ is when you swing your vote between left and far left…
How about we just ban the constitution then, hmm?
