Justice Department Asks SCOTUS To Reverse Court Ruling Protecting DREAMers

Justice Department Asks SCOTUS To Reverse Court Ruling Protecting DREAMers”

The Trump administration asked the U.S. Supreme Court to let the president end a program that protects hundreds of thousands of young immigrants from deportation, taking the unusual step of seeking to bypass a federal appeals court.

The petition is highly unusual, as the government bypassed the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals and asked the justices to hear the case in the near future-but the administration argues the move is justifiable, as the lower court order "requires the government to sanction indefinitely an ongoing violation of federal law being committed by almost 700,000 aliens".

The U.S. Supreme Court on Friday announced that it would hear argument on the third version of President Donald Trump's travel and refugee plan, which would limit visits to the United States by people from certain Muslim-majority nations, and slow down the number of refugees accepted into the country.

"The district court has entered a nationwide injunction that requires DHS to keep in place a policy of non-enforcement [of immigration laws] that no one contends is required by federal law and that DHS has determined is, in fact, unlawful and should be discontinued", the Justice Department lawyers argue in making their case for why the district court's ruling should be reviewed and overturned.

In the petition, Solicitor General Noel J. Francisco argued that Attorney General Jeff Sessions had found that the "DACA policy was unlawful" and he asked that the high court take action before the case winds its way through the appeal process.

On Jan. 9, Alsup ordered the federal government to revive the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA, which provides work permits and protection from deportation for immigrants who arrived in the US before the age of 16.

The move from the Trump administration comes as DACA is central to the debate over a possible government shutdown. Alsup also rejected the administration's request to dismiss the lawsuits.

If the Supreme Court decides to take up the government's petition, it will have the opportunity to quickly block Alsup's injunction, allowing DHS to follow the Trump administration's chosen policy and stop issuing DACA-status for the estimated 800,000 young illegal aliens who would begin to lose that status in March.

The University of California system brought the suit challenging DACA's termination.

California Attorney General Xavier Becerra said in a statement Tuesday that he was "confident the appellate courts will see the logic and justice behind the district court's issuance of the preliminary injunction".
