SUPREME COURT TO DECIDE FATE OF DACA
Yesterday, November 12, 2019, The Supreme Court heard oral arguments regarding whether the DACA program will be terminated. In 2017, President Trump issued an order officially ending the DACA program. Due to a Court injunction, DACA recipients were able to continue renewing their DACA until the issue is resolved.
Based on the questions asked during the oral arguments, it seems as though the conservative justices on the Court are inclined to end the DACA program. It was indicated the Justice Roberts might be the deciding vote and that the decision is likely to come down in early Spring 2020.
It is important that all current DACA recipients consult an immigration attorney to determine if they are eligible for any other immigration relief should DACA be terminated.
