The United states supreme court rules
in favor of deferred action for childhood arrivals
The United States Supreme Court ruled on June 18, 2020 that the Trump Administration did not follow the proper procedures under the Administrative Procedure Acts in its attempt to cancel Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. This decision leaves this important protection in place for over a million DREAMers who currently hold Deferred Action.
Chief Justice John Roberts stated, “We conclude that the acting secretary did violate the [Administrative Procedure Act],” and that the decision to rescind DACA “must be vacated.” Roberts called the Trump administration’s “total rescission” of DACA “arbitrary and capricious.”
