Supreme Court rules in favor of UC Regents to maintain DACA

The Supreme Court ruled against the decision to end a program that would protect undocumented individuals from deportation, claiming the decision was made arbitrarily.
The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program was first created in 2012 by the Department of Homeland Security under the Obama administration, which allowed undocumented individuals who entered the country under the age of 16 to defer deportation and legally work in the U.S. 
The court voted 5-4 in favor of the University of California Regents, one of the first entities to challenge the termination of DACA, finding that the DHS’ decision to end the DACA program was both reviewable in court and arbitrary. 
President Donald Trump issued an executive order in January 2017 directing federal agencies to execute immigration laws against “removable aliens.”
In response, the DHS revoked both DACA and the Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents program in June 2017.

Most of the National Guard will depart from Los Angeles on Sunday evening, LA Mayor Eric Garcetti said in a statement Sunday.
“A small number of units” will remain nearby until Wednesday for emergency support if necessary, he said. 
“I’m proud that our city has been peaceful this week — and that our residents are leading a powerful movement to make Los Angeles more just, equitable, and fair for Black Angelenos, communities of color, and all of our workers, youth, and families,” Garcetti said in the statement.
