The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday handed the Trump administration a setback over the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which shields hundreds of thousands of young immigrants from deportation.
The court declined to take up a key case dealing with the Obama-era DACA — for now.
The high court said an appeals court should hear the case first. The result is DACA will stay in place until or if the Supreme Court takes it up.
