In September 2017, the Trump administration announced that, in six months, the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA) would end unless Congress passed more comprehensive immigration legislation. On February 26, the U.S. Supreme Court announced it won't immediately take up President Trump's appeal of a lower-court decision that blocked the government from ending DACA.
This ruling leaves the Dreamers in limbo while Congress faces increased pressure to pass bipartisan immigration reform that addresses President Trump's four pillars - providing citizenship to the Dreamers, limiting chain migration, ending the visa lottery, and providing funds for the proposed border wall. So, what happens next? Will the next level of rulings come before or after the November midterms? How much pressure can voters exert in those months?
