Supreme Court Blocks Trump from Ending DACA in Victory for Immigrants

HeadlineJun 19, 2020

In a massive win for immigrant rights, the Supreme Court has ruled against President Trump’s attempt to end DACA, a program that protects nearly 700,000 immigrants from deportation. In 2017, Trump tried to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program created by President Obama in 2012. But in Thursday’s 5-4 decision, led by Chief Justice John Roberts, the court concluded Trump’s “total rescission” of DACA was “arbitrary and capricious.” A group of DREAMers celebrated the ruling outside the Supreme Court. Greisa Martínez Rosas is the deputy director of United We Dream.

Greisa Martínez Rosas: “I’m elated. I am really affirmed that the movement of young people organizing 11 million undocumented people demanding exactly what we deserve, we win. And so I am honored to be here today at the Supreme Court and ready to keep fighting for more.”
