After years of victories, fights and lawsuits, the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) finally decided on the DACA case today coming down to a split decision (5-4) between the conservative and liberal justices, with Chief Justice Roberts siding with the liberal justices.
1. The decision: DACA stays!
The Supreme Court decided it had the authority to review the case AND the way Trump ended the program was reckless and unreasonable. This means DACA survives for now.
2. New DACA Applications!
Yes! The Supreme Court decision says the program should reset to its original mandate in 2012 and new applications MUST be accepted! Now it’s up to Trump to respond.
3. The Trump administration will most likely try to end DACA, again.
Most likely. The Administration has hinted that they will be pursuing other avenues to end the program. This decision does not stop the administration from ending the program altogether.
4. Celebrate and let’s keep fighting together!
This is a HUGE win for our people!!! DACA was won by our communities and it is not the last of our victories.
Continue fighting with us! This is a temporary victory. We must fight for a permanent solution for our ENTIRE community! We must mobilize our communities to choose champions, who will fight for us! We need all hands on deck: Text DACADecision to 877-877 to support immigrants NOW!
