Supreme Court Takes No Action on DACA, Denies Trump Shut Down Win

Donald Trump DACAUPDATED: 2019/01/23 12:30PM

Donald Trump was counting on the Supreme Court’s DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) decision to use as a bargaining chip in getting funding for his border wall, but it looks like that won’t be happening.

On Tuesday, January 22nd, 2019 the Supreme Court once again did not act on the administration’s effort to end the program that gives protections to nearly 700,000 undocumented immigrants who came to the United States as children, leaving the program in place for at least the next several months.

Trump’s administration had asked for the court to take up the issue in Fall of 2018, and Trump was attempting to exchange protections for DACA recipients for his border wall. This was a reversal from his previous position of letting the Supreme Court decide.

The government shutdown is the longest in history and has lasted 33 days.
