U.S. Supreme Court Provisionally Stops Release of DACA Documents

The Supreme Court voted 5-4 in favor of temporarily stopping the release of Deferred Action on Childhood Arrivals (DACA) documents related on how the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) arrived at their decision rescinding the Obama-era DACA program. Last week, US Federal District Judge William Alsup in San Francisco previously issued an order compelling the DHS to release the documents to DACA program supporters but was overruled by the Supreme Court Order. Hearings will still be carried to definitively decide whether to release the documents or not.
Supporters of the DACA program argue that the Federal Government violated the law when it did not follow the proper legal procedure in rescinding the program. The DACA program was initiated to provide undocumented immigrants, who were brought into the U.S. as children, the ability to legally work and live in the U.S.
