Trump to Refile Paperwork to End DACA

The Trump Administration is expected to move once again and refile paperwork this week to rescind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

The new filing has been widely expected after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the administration failed in 2017 to provide adequate justification for terminating the Obama-era program. But the Supreme Court ruling, written by Chief Justice John Roberts, left the door open for the Trump administration to try again to rescind the program.White House chief of staff Mark Meadows hinted in a media interview earlier Monday, July 6, 2020 that the president was readying executive action on immigration issues.

The new filing would likely be challenged again in court.It’s unlikely that a new rescission would abruptly end benefits for current DACA recipients.
