Trump is taking another crack at ending the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program after a majority of the Supreme Court said the methods White House lawyers used to try to end it the first time were unconstitutional.
While the ruling did not go the administration’s way, it also caused a coalition of Democrat and GOP congressmen to back off from an effort to give amnesty to the estimated 800,000 DACA recipients.
Trump and Congress have been fighting over the Obama-era program since Trump tried to end it in 2017 on the grounds that it was never constitutional in the first place.
Conservatives criticized the Supreme Court decision that preserved DACA and questioned Chief Justice John Roberts’ motives for voting with the four liberal justices to make up the majority.
