Supreme Court Pumps The Accelerator On DACA Appeal

The Supreme Court agreed Tuesday to accelerate the Trump administration’s appeal of a lower court order requiring the government to continue administering the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, an Obama-era amnesty initiative that extends legal status to 700,000 illegal aliens who arrived in the U.S. as children.
The justices ordered DACA supporters to file a brief defending the lower court judgement by Feb. 2, a swift timetable compared to other cases. The expedited schedule means the justices could make a decision about whether to review the ruling as soon as Feb. 16, when the Court is next scheduled to meet in conference to discuss pending cases.
If the justices agree to take the case, arguments will likely be scheduled for the spring. A decision would follow by late June.
