Cornell’s Yale-Loehr on Supreme Court’s DACA decision


On June 18, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, program must remain in place. Stephen Yale-Loehr, a law professor at Cornell and a Charles Koch Foundation (CKF) grantee, commented on the decision in several news outlets, including National Public Radio (NPR),  The Associated Press, The New York Times and Chicago Tribune. As Yale-Loehr explained to FiveThirtyEight.Com:

“It’s a decision that Administrative Procedure Act nerds will love…The court said, under this domestic law, you’re supposed to do things a certain way, have certain adequate justifications for your actions, and this administration did not follow those procedural requirements. … This is a major victory for the Dreamers, but it’s arguably only a temporary victory … A lot will depend on the outcome of the presidential election — or if Congress decides to enact a legislative solution to resolve this once and for all.”
