DOJ urges Supreme Court to hear its case against DACA program for ILLEGALS

The Justice Department asked the Supreme Court Monday to consider President Donald Trump's plan to end an Obama administration program that protects undocumented immigrants brought to the United States as children.
The request for the high court to intervene in three cases from California, New York and the District of Columbia came even as a panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit was expected to render its verdict on the plan soon. Its decision would follow a federal district judge's decision in January that Trump lacked the authority to eliminate the program.
The high court in February refused to leapfrog that appeals court's review of Judge William Alsup's decision. And the Justice Department acknowledged in Monday's request that the appeals court ruling is likely to come first.
But the California-based appeals court is more likely to rule against Trump than the more conservative Supreme Court, one factor in the Justice Department's decision to seek the high court's review now. The administration wants to get the case on the justices' docket for the current term, which ends in June.
