“We do not decide whether DACA or its rescission are sound policies,“ Roberts wrote. “We address only whether the agency complied with the procedural requirement that it provide a reasoned explanation for its action. Here the agency failed to consider the conspicuous issues of whether to retain forbearance and what if anything to do about the hardship to DACA recipients.”
In addition, he wrote that “the Department of Homeland Security can try again.”
The DACA program was announced by President Barack Obama in 2012, the enrolled recipients were called “Dreamers”. It promised protection to citizens who have been in the country since childhood.
The candidates went through a great deal of checking before getting their 2 year work permits and protection from deportation.
President Trump’s administration in 2017 filed a case in the Supreme Court to end the Dream Act program. Only the already enrolled candidates will be given protection and their permit will be renewed for two years but no new candidates can join the program.
