The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program allows certain persons who arrived in the United States as children to apply for a forbearance of removal. Today, a five-person majority of the nation’s high court ruled in Department of Homeland Security v. Regents of the University of California that the Trump Administration violated the Administrative Procedure Act when it rescinded DACA because the memorandum ending the program failed to meet the requirement of providing a reasoned explanation for rescission (inadequately addressing the consequences of ending DACA).
The Trump Administration may yet undertake a new effort at a more thorough analysis, malicious though that would be; its hasty prior effort was found inadequate.
(The case was consolidated with Trump, President of the United States, et al. v. National Association for the Advancement of Colored People et al. and Wolf, Acting Secretary of Homeland Security, et al. v. Batalla Vidal et al.)
