Court says young immigrants can stay, rejecting Trump order
The Supreme Court has dealt President Donald Trump his second big legal setback in a week, rejecting his effort to end legal protections for 650,000 young immigrants.
For now, those immigrants retain their protection from deportation and their authorization to work in the United States. Earlier this week, the court ruled that it’s illegal to fire people because they’re gay or transgender, turning away Trump administration arguments.
Trump criticized what he called the “horrible and politically charged decisions,” and the immigration issue is sure to be a main feature in his reelection campaign.
