The US Supreme Court has given a setback to President Trump over DACA immigrants. It has ordered that the US administration must continue to safeguard DACA immigrants who arrived illegally to the nation as kids. The Justices of the US Supreme Court denied hearing the appeal of the administration over the injunction of the federal judge.
A Federal judge in the US had earlier halted the move by Trump to terminate the program that protects the immigrants popularly known as Dreamers. As per the executive order signed by Trump, in September 2017, DACA had to start phasing out from March 2018, as quoted by the Economic Times.
Around 700,000 youth are protected through the program Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals – DACA. These are protected from being deported and are offered 2 years US Work Visas. After this, they must again apply for an extension.
The Justices of the Supreme Court did not offer explanations for their reasons in a brief order. But they did add that the denial of the appeal was devoid of bias. This means that they are open-minded over the issue that is under the consideration of the lower courts. The 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals based in San Francisco is already hearing the issue.
Xavier Becerra the California Attorney General who is also a Democrat termed the decision by the administration to circumvent the 9th Circuit as unnecessary and unusual. This court has ruled against Trump over other issues.
Becerra said that they would explain to the 9th Circuit Court that DACA is completely lawful. DACA immigrants contribute to the strengthening of the state and the economy. Thus the rescinding of the program must not be allowed, he added.
