Following a loss at the Supreme Court last month, President Donald Trump is expected file again this week to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, The Hill reports.
The Hill, citing “multiple people familiar with the planning,” said Trump originally was set to move on the Obama-era program last week, but the scheduling was changed.
DACA allows some who were brought into the country illegally as children to apply to stay and receive a work permit if they do not have felonies or serious misdemeanors on their records. It does not provide a path to citizenship.
The Supreme Court ruled in June that the Trump administration did not give a proper justification for ending DACA in 2017, though it did rule that the president had the authority to end the program.
Trump immediately vowed to refile “enhanced papers.”
Chief Justice John Roberts joined the high court’s four liberal justices in a 5-4 decision against the Trump White House.
“We have to refile,” Trump told Fox News shortly following the ruling. “And everything’s going to work out for DACA and the young people, who aren’t so young, if you want to know the truth.”
