SCOTUS Gives DACA The Thumbs Up...For Now


For the second time in a week, the Supreme Court has given President Trump the answer he didn’t want: No. This time? It’s about DACA – what’s also known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. And SCOUTS has ruled that the President can’t just scrap the thing as he’s been trying to.

In a five-four decision – with Chief Justice John Roberts siding with the liberal wing – writing that the White House's plan violated federal law because it was "arbitrary and capricious." In other words, it's not that the White House doesn’t have the power to rescind DACA, it's just that they botched the procedure.

Not surprisingly, the President has taken to Twitter to express his displeasure. “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,” he offered. “We need more Justices or we will lose our 2nd. Amendment & everything else.” In a statement, the White House plans to press on.
