President Donald Trump on Friday said his administration will make a filing on "Dreamer" immigrants in the United States, without providing details, to address the Supreme Court's ruling that said he broke federal procedure law in ending a program shielding them from deportation.
A day after the Supreme Court blocked his bid to end the DACA program, President Donald Trump on Friday said his administration would try again.
Trump on Twitter referenced the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program that shields immigrants who are in the United States illegally but entered as children – known as Dreamers - from deportation.
Trump tweeted : “"The Supreme Court asked us to resubmit on DACA, nothing was lost or won.
They 'punted', much like in a football game…We will be submitting enhanced papers shortly in order to properly fulfill the Supreme Court’s ruling & request of yesterday," Trump, however, did not explain what he meant by "enhanced papers." The highest court in the country left the door open for Trump to attempt again to rescind the program, ruling only that the administration had not met a procedural requirement and its actions were (quote) "arbitrary and capricious" under federal law.
Lawyer Prashant Bhushan said he did not intend to disrespect the Supreme Court or judiciary with his tweets. Bhushan’s comments came during a press conference after the Supreme Court found him guilty of the contempt for his two tweets. The apex court said the tweets were against judiciary and maintained they cannot be said to be fair criticism of the functioning of the judiciary made in public interest. “My tweets were not intended to disrespect the Supreme Court or the judiciary as a whole, but were merely meant to express my anguish, at what I felt, was a deviation from its sterling past record,” said Bhushan. “This issue was never about me versus the Hon’ble Judges, much less about me vs the Supreme Court. When the Supreme Court wins, every Indian wins; every Indian wants a strong judiciary,” Bhushan added.
