Three major cases went up in smoke after Biden abandoned Trump policies. On Tuesday, all of the parties to Department of Homeland Security v. New York, a lawsuit challenging a Trump-era policy targeting low-income immigrants, asked the Supreme Court to dismiss that case. The Court swiftly granted that request, removing from consideration one of the most contentious cases that the justices planned to hear this year.
The president made one last stand on immigration in Alamo. In his first public appearance since his speech that incited last week’s violent insurrection at the US Capitol building, President Donald Trump returned to a theme that he often invokes in times of political strife: immigration.
Matthew Albence, acting director of US Immigration and Customs Enforcement, said on Thursday that ICE will deport immigrants in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program if the Supreme Court strikes it down later this year. That statement seems tocontradict Chief Justice John Roberts's understanding that such deportations will not happen.
he Trump administration is working on new rules that would allow the government to keep immigrants from settling in the US, or even keep them from extending their stays, if their families had used a broad swath of local, state, or federal social services to which they are legally entitled — even enrolling their US-born children in Head Start or the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP).
