U.S. Supreme Court To Hear DACA Appeal

In December 2018, we reported that the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, a federal appeals court, upheld a trial court’s decision to issue a nationwide injunction against the federal government from rescinding the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals “DACA” program. On June 28, the United States Supreme Court granted certiorari, agreeing to hear an appeal of the Ninth Circuit decision, along with two other cases in which appeals courts have not yet ruled. Specifically, the Court will consider:

  1. Whether the Department of Homeland Security’s decision to suspend DACA is subject to judicial review; and
  2. Whether the Department of Homeland Security’s decision to suspend DACA is lawful.

The Supreme Court will hear arguments during its next term. HLERK will continue to report on developments related to DACA and its impact on school districts throughout Illinois.
