The Supreme Court blocked Trump from ending the DACA



Jeffrey Toobin explains Supreme Court decision on DACA

In writing that opinion, Roberts once again sided with the liberals on the bench in an important dispute which would anger the still-bitter judicial conservatives that he had once voted in favor of Obamacare.

The ruling stressed that the administration failed to provide sufficient reasons to justify ending the DACA program.

“We do not decide whether the DACA or its cancellation is a good policy,” Roberts wrote in the majority opinion. “The ‘wisdom’ of the decision ‘is none of our business.’ We only discuss whether the agent meets the procedural requirements given a reasonable explanation for his actions. “

This is a severe blow to the Trump administration, because immigration reform has been key to Trump’s agenda. This means that for now, participants in the program can continue to renew membership in the program offering them work permits and temporary protection from deportation.

In his first reaction to the decision, President Donald Trump resubmitted a tweet showing the dissent of Judge Clarence Thomas.

The decision was “an attempt to avoid decisions that are politically controversial but are legally correct,” Thomas wrote.

Trump also seems to have blown up the DACA decision and an opinion issued earlier this week that expanded the anti-discrimination protection for LGBTQ workers.

“These terrible and politically charged decisions that come out of the Supreme Court are shotgun blasts in the faces of people who are proud to call themselves Republicans or Conservatives,” he wrote.

Former President Barack Obama also considered the decision Indonesia Thursday morning, wrote the recipient of DACA: “Today, I am happy for them, their families, and all of us.”

“We may look different and come from everywhere, but what makes us Americans is our shared ideals,” Obama wrote, noting the program was made eight years ago this week.

However, the Trump administration can move, once again, to try to cancel the program, but this time the government must provide a better explanation based on policy for reasons of termination.

“Today’s decision allows Dreamers to breathe temporary relief,” said Professor Stephen Yale-Loehr of Cornell Law School. “The government might try to stop the DACA program with better justification, but it will take months or years. Meanwhile, Congress must enact permanent assistance for Dreamers to end this drama forever.”

Luz Chavez, a Maryland-based DACA recipient, was on the steps of the Supreme Court when the ruling was issued Thursday.

“Now, in the end, our community won, right? We have long pushed for this. Immigrant youth is the reason why the DACA was announced and created,” Chavez told CNN. “How fun.”

Created by Obama after the congress standoff

DACA, established in 2012, is available to any undocumented immigrant who comes to the US under the age of 16, who has lived in the US since at least June 2007, is enrolled in high school or graduated and has never been convicted of certain certainty. violation.

An individual must also not pose a threat to national security or public safety. Recipients who meet the criteria become eligible for a two-year “deferred” grant from removal. They also qualify for job authorization and social security numbers. However, in return, they must provide certain identification information to the government.

After Trump came to power, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced that the program had been made “without proper authority” and only after Congress rejected the proposed law. The following day, Elaine Duke, Secretary of Homeland Security who was acting at the time, announced it would be removed, indicating that he had “legal and constitutional defects.”

A few months later, after legal challenges had been launched, Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen issued a new memo outlining more policy-based justifications to stop the program. He said, for example, that the program increased the risk of damaging public confidence in the rule of law.

The Federal Court intervened and said that the government had acted arbitrarily when removing the program illegally. The court pointed to the administration’s narrow justification – the reason Roberts and the Supreme Court finally agreed.

The administration moved aggressively asking the Supreme Court to revoke the order, and the President predicted success.

“We want to be in the Supreme Court at DACA,” Trump said. But the judges sat on the petition for months, before finally giving the certificate last season.

The plaintiff, including the University of California, a handful of states and DACA recipients argued to the Supreme Court that this termination violated the Administrative Procedure Act, a federal law governing how agents can make regulations.

One hundred and forty-three business associations and companies submitted a brief report to support the DACA by emphasizing that its termination would endanger the economy. A short point for research from the libertarian Cato Institute which estimates that companies will face around $ 6.3 billion in fees to replace Dreamers “if they can even find new employees to fill vacant positions.”

And Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO, submitted a brief report to support DACA by noting that his company employed 443 Dreamers from 25 countries and four different continents.

“We do not hire them because of goodness or charity,” Cook argues. “We did it because Dreamers embodied Apple’s innovative strategy,” he said. “They come from diverse backgrounds and display a variety of skills and experiences that equip them to tackle problems from a variety of perspectives.”

After the judge heard the argument in this case, supporters of DACA recipients also told the court that around 27,000 recipients worked on the front lines to fight Covid-19.

The Committee on Foreign Affairs and Portuguese Communities voted on Tuesday in favor of four projects – from the Left Bloc, the Communist Party of Portugal, “People-Animal-Nature” and “Enough”, which mainly advocate the abolition of fees for teaching Portuguese abroad and free school textbooks.

According to Paulo Pisco, a socialist member of the commission, the opinions of the BE, PKP and PAN were approved, but Chega’s opinion deserved to be abstained from the PS because it contained “xenophobic elements” in its purpose.

The MP had in mind, in particular, the recipients of this teaching, which is currently intended not only for the Portuguese or the descendants of the Portuguese, but also for those who want to learn the Portuguese language, with which Chega allegedly disagrees, according to Paulo Pisco. .


After the approval of these opinions, the abolition of the bribe would be discussed and voted on in the plenary session of the Assembly of the Republic, but Paulo Pisco said that they should not be approved, since the “commitment” of the government is different.

“The government’s obligation is to reduce the burden of the Portuguese” and this will always be determined “in every approved state budget”.
