However, Trump took a tough stance on immigration and announced in September 2017 that he would end the program..

Immigrants, human rights organizations, universities and states run by Democrats have filed lawsuits and courts have suspended the administration’s plan.

The Supreme Court will have to answer two questions: can federal judges consider the decision to terminate the program, and if so, did the administration take the legal path, curtailing the program??
