Appeals Court Rules Against White House In Latest DACA Decision

When the White House unveiled President Trump’s new immigration plan earlier this week, Sarah Sanders said the issue of DACA was left unaddressed because it’s just too controversial. Better to leave that one to the Supreme Court and see where the chips fall.

DACA

Not two days later, a federal appeals court in Virginia has ruled against the Trump administration, upholding an earlier determination that Trump’s attempt to rescind DACA protections was unlawful because “it was not adequately explained.”

More from the Hill:

A split federal appeals court on Friday ruled that President Trump’s decision to rescind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program was unlawful because “it was not adequately explained.”

The 4th Circuit Court of Appeals in Virginia found that the administration’s termination of the program was “arbitrary and capricious,” in line with a prior ruling from the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals

The ruling comes as the legal battle over the termination of DACA continues. The Supreme Court is weighing whether to hear several cases over the end of the program.

That sounds like an esoteric technicality, but SCOTUS is presently looking at several cases and their implications for DACA, and it’s very likely SCOTUS will issue the final decision on the matter next year.
