Trump Calls on SCOTUS to Allow DACA's Recission and Congress will Act




The Supreme Court on November 12 will be hearing oral arguments in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arroivals (DACA) rescission cases.  The Hill reports that President Trump yesterday called on the Supreme Court to strike down DACA.  In a pair of tweets, Trump said that if the DACA is upheld it would give the president “extraordinary powers” while saying that if the program is struck down, he thinks Congress would make a deal to “benefit DACA.”  Of course, a long term solution is what is needed.  However, Congress for years has been unable to act.  Will a Supreme Court decision allow DACA to be rescinded move Congress to act?  That is very hard to say.
