The Supreme Court Declines to Hear Trump's Appeal to End DACA

On Monday, the U.S. Supreme Court refused to hear President Trump's administration's appeal to a nationwide injunction set by a federal judge to stop the president from ending DACA. This decision means that the Trump administration may not be able to end DACA by March 5, 2018, as they had planned. 

After President Trump ended DACA last September, his original plan said that only those recipients of DACA whose status was due to expire before March 5 could reapply. After that date, anyone whose status expired would no longer receive protections under DACA. However, in January of 2018, a federal District Judge from Northern California ruled that DACA would have to remain in place and DACA renewal applications would have to continue to be accepted while legal challenges about the order to end DACA continue. Now, after the Supreme Court's action, DACA recipients can continue to renew their status and keep working legally in the United States.

This decision has also lifted pressure off of Congress to create a permanent solution for DACA and those who qualify for the program, 'Dreamers,' which had also been given a rough deadline for March 5. Since no bipartisan agreement was reached on proposed immigration bills in the Senate, it may now take months for Congress to reach an agreement on the fate of DACA. For now, although there is an extension for DACA renewal, there is a need for a permanent solution to protect DACA recipients.
