close tovideo Supreme court to hear arguments to Trump, is the decision end IF
The DOJ says the move is legal; constitutional law lawyer Ken Belkin weighs.
President Trump over the Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program on Tuesday morning, as the policy was, comes before the Supreme court-while dangling the possibility of protecting a deal with the Congress, the so-called dreamers, if the court his way.
The court is scheduled to hear oral arguments about the Trump administration’s plan to end the protection of DACA granted to immigrants who brought the goods into the country illegally when they were children.
Trump implies that the beneficiaries of the DACA program do not all deserve the protection that the then-President Barack Obama is in force by executive order. At the same time, the President vowed that if the Supreme court allows him to terminate the program, he and the Congress will make a deal to allow DACA recipients to remain in the United States

“Many of the people who are in the DACA, no longer quite young, tweeted far away from the ‘angels,'” Trump. “Some are very hard, hard criminals. President Obama said that he had no right to, but would anyway. If the Supreme Court of appeal, with tilt, an offer will be made, with Dems for you to stay!”
DACA can get some undocumented immigrants who as children — known as dreamers — the chance, for a renewable period of two years of deferred action from deportation and eligible for work permits. Almost 700,000 people are currently covered by DACA.
The Trump administration announced its plan to phase out the program in 2017, only for the Federal courts rule that it could not apply retroactively and that DACA should be restarted in full. The White house fought back on those decisions, says the President broad powers over immigration enforcement policy.

DACA advocates have argued that Trump will be changed if the planned termination is 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.
The Supreme Court took the unusual step of recording the cases before it belongs completely to the lower court level. The Federal courts, injunctions, have issued nationwide, the administration blocked the plans, at least for now.
