On June 18, the Supreme Court ruled against the Trump administration, deciding that President Trump is blocked from carrying out his plan to end Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). The 5-4 ruling is based on a lack of proper process and that the Trump administration did not give a proper justification before ending the program. This means that while DACA currently may continue, it could be possible for the Trump administration to go through the proper process to end the program. Four out of five of the justices in the majority dismissed the argument that the decision to end DACA was motivated by discrimination against Latino people. Justices Thomas, Alito, Kavanaugh, and Gorsuch dissented.
