No Action on Administration’s Request to Expedite Ruling on DACA

As of Tuesday January 22, 2019, the U.S. Supreme Court had taken NO action on a November 2018 request by the Trump Administration to expedite a ruling on the court decisions that keep the DACA program in place. As a result, it is increasingly likely that the earliest the Supreme Court would hear the case – if at all – is in its new term that starts October 2019. If that prediction holds true, DACA protections will likely remain in place under current court rulings through at least the end of 2019.
