DEMS/DREAMERS/OBAMA/SUPREME COURT/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “The Supreme Court will hear arguments over the termination of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, the court said Friday [6-28-19]. The announcement sets up a legal showdown later this year over President Donald Trump’s decision to remove protections that allow 669,000 Dreamers — who were illegally brought to the U.S. or overstayed a visa as children — to live and work in the United States legally. The high court could assign the case for argument as soon as October. The news comes as Trump and congressional Democrats continue to feud over his aggressive immigration crackdown and a growing influx of migrant families and children at the Southwest border. DACA, which was established in 2012 as an executive-branch program by former President Barack Obama, provides deportation relief and work permits to Dreamers brought to the United States as children. Trump, arguing that DACA would not withstand legal challenges, moved to phase out the initiative in September 2017. But three federal judges blocked the planned termination.”
