The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program will not end on March 5th after all.
News Radio 1200 WOAI reports the U.S. Supreme Court today refused to immediately consider two lower court rulings seeking to resolve due process questions about President Trump's decision in September that the so called 'Dreamers' protection from deportation would end in March.
At the time, the president challenged Congress to get involved in the issue, but so far, it has failed to do so.
While there is no doubt that the President has the authority to end DACA, which was started by Barack Obama in 2012, the lawsuits claim that there are several issues that need to be resolved first.
Today's ruling gives Congress more breathing room to come up with a permanent solution to the status of the estimated 750,000 young people who were brought to this country with their illegal immigrant parents.
