Arbitrary And Capricious

5 to 4 decision on DACA (Deferred Action For Childhood Arrivals) came in today. 644 thousand children brought to US ages 16 or younger will be allowed to retain their legal status and work here. The Trump administration's  case was said by Chief Justice John Roberts of SCOTUS to have been arbitrary and capricious to declare the program discontinued. If a full policy review and presentation of the pros and cons  had been set before the Court (done their homework) then the administration's case might have prevailed. 
.

The details stated the admin had the right to terminate the program but had to go through a thorough review and present proof that DACA should be ended. They can not be deported now and Trump has to go back to the drawing board. 

.

The time it would take to end DACA would take more time than Trump has to complete preparing another case for mass deportations before the election. A permanent Legislative determination is required to make the status permanent and perhaps allow Dreamers to become US citizens. Basically, going after immigrants is racist. The laws are also systemically racist. Exclusionary politics; We are big on that here.

.

Trump's response, he said it was "A shotgun blast to the right and Conservatives." He does not think the Supreme Court likes him. He attacked the Court. Trump needed a win for his base but had he prevailed, assuming "his" packed Court was going to back him, would have lost him the Latin X vote. There are over half a million potential USA citizens are breathing free today, 06-18-20.
