Circuit Court: Court and Benefits Immigrants

circuit court: Under the Republican president's action, the protections were due to start phasing out beginning in March, according to CBC. In a brief order, the justices did not explain their reasoning, but said the appeal was denied without prejudice, indicating they will maintain an open mind on the underlying legal issue still being considered by a lower court, the San Francisco-based 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. The justices refused to hear the administration's appeal of a federal judge's Jan. 9 injunction that halted Trump's move to rescind a program that benefits immigrants known as Dreamers implemented in 2012 by his Democratic predecessor, Barack Obama. The high court also said it expects the lower court to proceed expeditiously to decide this case. You know, we tried to get it moved quickly, because we'd like to help DACA.
