Supreme Court allows Trump to withhold documents on DACA


The Supreme Court on Friday put on hold a lower court ruling requiring the Trump administration to turn over documents related to President Trump‘s decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

The split 5-4 ruling is a defeat for groups seeking to sue the Trump administration in California over the perceived illegality of the decision to end DACA, an Obama-era program which protects from deportation immigrants who were brought to the U.S. illegally as children.

In a dissent, the court’s liberal justices criticized the majority for intervening in a “discovery-related dispute,” CNN reported.

“This court,” Justice Stephen Breyer wrote, joined by three other justices, is “poorly positioned to second-guess district courts’ determinations in this area.”
