NewsFlash! Trump Administration Asking Supreme Court to Overturn DACA Injunction

The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) is taking the unorthodox step of asking the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn a federal district court’s nationwide injunction blocking the termination of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. In addition, the DOJ has appealed this decision to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, which is the usual method of challenging a district court’s injunction. However, rather than waiting to see how the Ninth Circuit rules on this issue before petitioning the high court, the DOJ is also asking for the Supreme Court to intercede directly.
