Congress has now approved a bill that would fund the government through September to the tune of $1.3 trillion and provides for massive funding increases for federal immigration authorities. The omnibus funding bill notably includes a provision for underwriting a partial southern border wall but leaves out a fix for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals.

The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday, February 26, 2018, denied the Trump administration's request to review a California federal court’s order that temporarily paused the federal government’s move to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
By declining to take up the government's appeal of a district court's DACA ruling the U.S. Supreme Court is allowing the Ninth Circuit to finish its review.
The high court did not specify a rationale for its decision to not review.
