Supreme Court keeps DACA alive -- at least a few more months

Hosted by

On Monday the Supreme Court decided to stay out of the dispute around DACA -- but just for now. That means the Trump administration may not be able to end the program on March 5 as it planned. It also means that there’s less pressure on Congress now to pass a new bill to replace DACA. The White House responded to the decision by saying that DACA benefits “illegal immigrants'' and “is clearly unlawful.”
