(UnitedVoice.com) – On Thursday morning, the US Supreme Court ruled the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) did not correctly follow the Administrative Procedure Act (APA), leaving in place an injunction against deporting DACA recipients.
Writing for the majority, Chief Justice John Roberts wrote the dispute wasn’t if DHS can rescind DACA. He affirmed all the parties involved agree it can. The issue, he wrote, was regarding the procedure the agency followed in doing so. Therefore, DHS can fix the problem to align with the APA and proceed.
Across social media, news outlets were falsely claiming the court sided against Trump.

President Barack Obama signed an executive order allowing 700,000 people who entered the United States illegally as children to stay in the country. The order provided a two-year renewable period from deportation and allowed them to obtain work permits. President Trump rescinded the order to dissuade illegal immigrants from bringing their children into the United States and taking advantage of loose immigration policies.
For now, DACA immigrants, known as Dreamers, will not be deported and are authorized to continue working in the United States. DHS has continued to process two-year DACA renewals. The most current are approved through early 2022. President Trump has repeatedly stated he prefers Congress to fix the problem legislatively.
To be perfectly clear, this isn’t a loss for Trump, it’s a procedural issue that the administration can fix and proceed with.
