The Supreme Court could announce as early as Friday that it will hear arguments on whether President Donald Trump has the legal authority to end DACA.
President Barack Obama created the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) amnesty program for illegal aliens in 2012. In 2014, Obama expanded DACA into DAPA (Deferred Action for Parents of Americans). In 2015, the Fifth Circuit federal appeals court struck down DAPA as illegal, and then the Supreme Court deadlocked 4-4 on the issue after Justice Antonin Scalia passed away in February 2016.
Shortly after President Donald Trump took office, the Justice Department determined that DACA is illegal for the same reasons the courts struck down DAPA. The Department of Homeland Security accordingly announced that it would end DACA.
