The Supreme Court on Thursday blocked the Trump administration’s attempt to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, an Obama-era program that protects hundreds of thousands of immigrants brought to the US as children from deportation.
The 5-4 ruling was written by Chief Justice John Roberts and joined by Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Elena Kagan, Stephen Breyer and Sonia Sotomayor.
In penning the opinion, Roberts once again sided with the liberals on the bench in a momentous dispute that will infuriate judicial conservatives who are still bitter that he once provided the deciding vote to uphold Obamacare.
Justice Clarence Thomas, in his dissent, wrote: “Today’s decision must be recognized for what it is: an effort to avoid a politically controversial but legally correct decision.”
The NPZ Law Group‘s U.S. Immigration and Nationality lawyers hail this decision as a constitutional law triumph and tribute to the fact that the system can do the right thing. David Nachman, Esq., one of the Managing Attorney’s at VISASERVE states: “The decision stands as proof that a President Obama properly vetted the Constitutional underpinnings of the DACA Program”.
