SCOTUS punts on DACA, giving Democrats no reason to take Trump’s deal to end shutdown

On Tuesday, the Supreme Court declined to take up the court case involving President Trump’s effort to end DACA amnesty for approximately 700,000 so-called “Dreamers.”
The New York Times reports that the court’s inaction all but guarantees the court will not hear the case until at least its next term, which leaves the program in place indefinitely. This means congressional Democrats have one more reason to refuse to compromise with President Trump on border security and reopen the government.
President Trump declared DACA unconstitutional in 2017 and moved to revoke President Obama’s illegal executive order, only to be thwarted by federal courts. The Ninth Circuit issued a nationwide injunction blocking the Trump administration from rescinding DACA and leaving the fate of the 700,000 program participants uncertain. The Supreme Court will ultimately need to resolve the case, but having declined to hear it today, the earliest it can be taken up is in February, with oral arguments likely to begin in October.
Meanwhile, the government shutdown fight over border security continues in Congress.
