WASHINGTON D.C. (CBS NEWS) – The Supreme Court on Thursday delivered a blow to President Trump’s immigration agenda, ruling the administration’s attempt to dismantle an Obama-era program that protects young undocumented immigrants from deportation was unlawful.
With its 5-4 ruling, the high court provided a lifeline to nearly 700,000 immigrants whose future in the United States hung in the balance while a years-long legal battle over the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program moved through the courts.
Chief Justice John Roberts, who joined the four liberals justices on the bench, delivered the opinion for the court, writing that the Trump administration’s decision to unwind the program was “arbitrary and capricious” under the Administrative Procedure Act.
Roberts wrote the court does “not decide whether DACA or its rescission are sound policies,” but said the Department of Homeland Security should revisit the issue.
