SCOTUS Will Not Take on Trump’s DACA Challenge For Now

HeadlineJan 23, 2019

In more news from the Supreme Court, justices decided not to take up the Trump administration’s attempted repeal of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, program. This leaves the program in place for now, as several lower court judges already ruled against Trump’s challenge to the Obama-era policy. DACA currently benefits around 700,000 formerly undocumented people who were brought to the U.S. as children.
