The Supreme Court has rejected President Donald Trump’s bid to end the legal protection for 652,000 young immigrants who live and work in the United States.

Trump administration’s decision to put an end to the program was considered “arbitrary and capricious” by the Cheif Justice John Roberts, who wrote the 5-4 majority opinion.

Roberts said that “the court did not decide whether Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and its rescission are sound policies,” indicating that Trump could try again.

According to the justices, Trump’s administration did not take the proper steps to end DACA. The administration’s arguments that the program is illegal and that courts have no role to play in reviewing the decision to end it also have been rejected.

Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA)  permitted young persons who were raised without legal immigration status in the US  to own renewable, two-year authorizations to live and work in America, VisaGuide.World reports.

The program includes people who have been in the United States since they were children and are illegally staying in the country.

The United States President, Donald Trump recently has reacted regarding the court’s work, considering their decision “horrible.”

 “These horrible & politically charged decisions coming out of the Supreme Court are shotgun blasts into the face of people that are proud to call themselves Republicans or Conservatives. We need more Justices, or we will lose our 2nd Amendment & everything else. Vote Trump 2020!” President Trump’s Twitter post reads.

Former Vice President Joe Biden said that, if elected, will send Congress proposed legislation to make Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals’ protections permanent.

Regarding the issue, Former Democrat President Barack Obama said that “Eight years ago this week, we protected young people who were raised as part of our American family from deportation. Today, I’m happy for them, their families, and all of us.”

On 2012, President Barack Obama implemented DACA, which formally protects people from deportation while also allows them to work legally in the United States.
