In its second major blow to Trump this week the Supreme Court appears to be anything but Trumpian. First, the court ruled in favour of LGBTQ+ Americans agreeing that the Civil Rights Act does indeed protect said Americans and individuals from discriminations in the workplace based on their gender identity or sexual orientation(s).
Now the court has again ruled in favour of those challenging Trump ‘s draconian policies. According to their latest ruling, the Supremes have decided ultimately that the Trump Administration did indeed violate federal law by attempting to end DACA protections. The Trump Administration has long made such a move a focal point of said administration and the inevitable re-election campaign.
That program was first created by then President Barack Obama in 2012. In essence, it protects immigrant children brought to the United States as children from deportation otherwise as they’ve gotten older. Trump has argued that such a program allows for “pipeline immigration” across the border, a claim that has been disproven two times over since the beginning of his presidency.
Chief Justice John Roberts handed down the ruling ultimately citing that the Acting Secretary of Homeland Security violated the Administrative Procedure Act — which governs how the federal government can actually go about setting regulations it wishes to set. In that same ruling, Roberts also ruled that the Department failed to address a number of obvious issues — including what exactly to do with the people who had already long relied on the program.
