The Ministry of justice submitted a legal brief to the Supreme court Monday declared that President Trump acted lawfully when he decided to the end of the Obama era, the immigration program known as the IF in September 2017, according to a new report.

The Department of Homeland Security, “adequately, correctly, and at a minimum, the conclusion that DACA is illegal,” justice Department lawyers wrote in a letter submitted to the Supreme court late on Monday evening.


The Supreme Court will begin to hear arguments in November. A decision is expected in the year of presidential elections, by the high court in the middle of one of the most politically charged topics of the debates. A decision in favor of Trump, it would allow for the deportation of the President more than a million young adults residing in the U.S. under DACA protection, the New York Times reported.

Deferred action for Childhood arrivals, or daca, which was created under an executive order in 2012. The program is known for some illegal immigrants — as “dreamers” – who were brought to the United States, how to get children– the opportunity for a renewable two-year deferral from deportation and eligible for work permits.

In the year 2017, the Trump administration announced its plan to exit from the program, but Federal courts have ruled that the phase-out could not be retroactively applied and that the program should be restarted.

The White house fought back on those decisions, says the President broad powers over immigration enforcement policy. Federal appeals courts across the country, the efforts of the Federal government to move ahead with the phasing out of the Obama era have rejected the program.

DACA advocates have also argued that Trump will be changed if the planned termination of the program against Federal law, adequate notice-and-comment in the time before certain Federal rules, as well as other constitutional equal protection and due process guarantees.

A decision of the Supreme court to end DACA could not mention Americans galvanize the young, to make sure Trump will see four more years in the White house, the times report. On the other hand, if the court could continue to argue the Obama-era selects program, conservative, Trump needs another four years to fulfil his election promises on immigration.
