Trump asks Supreme Court to overturn DACA program

The Justice Department asked the Supreme Court Tuesday to overturn this month’s stunning ruling by a lower court that found the Obama-era DACA deportation amnesty legal — yet also ruled the Trump administration’s effort to phase out the program was illegal.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions said the ruling “defies both law and common sense,” and said they’re asking the justices to hear the case directly, skipping over the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, which would be the normal path.
The request comes as Congress is trying to figure out a permanent solution for the 690,000 illegal immigrant “Dreamers” currently protected by DACA.
Judge William Alsup
Judge William Alsup threw a curveball at Capitol Hill last week when he issued a series of ruling. He said then-candidate Donald Trump showed “racial animus” toward Mexicans during the 2016 campaign, and he said since most DACA recipients are Mexican, that tainted the Homeland Security Department’s decision last year to phase out the deportation amnesty.
