The Morning Brew: Supreme Court staying out of DACA decision for now

The appeal came after a USA district court temporarily blocked the Trump administration from ending DACA, the program former President Barack Obama established to protect immigrants who came to the US illegally as children.

As Time reports, this Supreme Court decision means that people who now have DACA status can continue to renew it through March 5 - that includes the roughly 700,000 young people who are now enrolled in the program.

The government had appealed one of those rulings to the Supreme Court and, in a rare step to leapfrog the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit, asked the justices to overturn the lower court order quickly.

Echoing the above view, Justice Department spokesperson, Devin O'Malley said, "While we were hopeful for a different outcome, the Supreme Court very rarely grants certiorari before judgment, though in our view, it was warranted".

"Without the injunction, thousands of DACA recipients would lose their work authorization and deferred action status in March 2018 - and thousands more the next month, and each succeeding month, until almost three-quarters of a million young Americans would be shunted back into the shadows of our society", Becerra wrote in his brief. The Supreme Court slapdown of Trump occurs only two days after, speaking at the CPAC convention, Trump compared the nation's immigrants to snakes. As a result, the plaintiffs are likely to succeed on the merits of their claim that the DACA termination decision was arbitrary and capricious, he said. The Deputy Press Secretary said, "The district judge's decision to unilaterally re-impose a program that Congress had explicitly and repeatedly rejected is a usurpation of legislative authority".

DACA is a program, in existence for more than five years, that protects from deportation almost 700,000 younger undocumented immigrants who do not have the kind of formal legal status that would allow them to remain in the country.

The cases will return to circuit courts, effectively delaying the rescission of the program until June or July.

If Congress acts in the meantime to extend the program or provide an alternative path to citizenship for its recipients, the legal case would probably be dismissed.

The court's decision also could relieve the immediate political pressure on lawmakers to permanently address the status of those immigrants, or to deal with the additional 1 million young immigrants who had never signed up for the DACA program. Rather, it denied a Trump administration request for a quicker high-court decision.

This means, among other things, that last month's ruling by Judge Alsup, which also held that the Dreamers may renew their 2-year existing DACA applications while litigation over the legality of Trump's action in doing away with DACA is resolved, remains in place.

Earlier this month, a second U.S. judge in the state of NY issued another injunction to keep DACA in place.
