President Trump rescinded President Obama’s executive order that allowed children brought illegally to the U.S. to stay. Trump called it overreach, and not within the president’s power. Several parties sued the administration to reinstate the protection, and the court case has landed on the docket of the U.S. Supreme Court.
When Trump ended the so-called Dreamer provision, he called out Congress, saying it was the duty of elected representatives to form last immigration laws, and not the province of presidents.
With the case set to be heard this term, Trump remains confident that, if his administration wins and the Dreamer provision is revoked, Congress will come up with a suitable alternative quickly.
“Republicans and Democrats will have a deal to let them stay in our country, in very short order.”
