The Trump administration returned to the U.S. Supreme Court Monday night seeking to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, an Obama-era amnesty initiative that extends protected status to illegal aliens brought to the U.S.as children. But in September 2017, the the Trump administration announced its plans to terminate DACA, making some of the 800,000 young adults who qualified for the program eligible again for deportation.

"The Supreme Court's decision is push-back against FCC Chairman Pai's effort to get rid of net neutrality. There was absolutely no reason for the Supreme Court to take this case, and today's denial puts to bed the chances of upending the correct appellate-court decisions".

The appeals, filed more than a year ago, lost most of their practical significance in June, when a new Federal Communications Commission order took effect and abolished the net neutrality rule.

The "DACA" program - formally, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals - was created by the Obama Administration, and has spared almost 700,000 immigrant youths from being sent back to countries from which they came as children with their parents.

DACA does not provide a path to US citizenship but does allow those accepted into the program to get renewable two-year permits to remain in the country, to go to school, to work and to share in some federal benefit programs.

Cases challenging the administration's attempts to end protections for undocumented immigrants who were brought to the United States as children are now pending before the Second, Ninth, and D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals.

Similarly, the team understood that a solid defense could key on Thomas in the postseason and leave them fighting with one hand. He caught 531 passes for 7,459 yards and 73 touchdowns during his tenure, including 838 yards and six touchdowns last season.

Supporters say net neutrality protects consumers, while opponents say it discourages investment.

Jessica Rosenworcel, the Federal Communication Commission's only Democratic Commissioner, noted that the FCC had argued that because the Trump-era FCC had repealed the 2015 rules, the 2016 decision was moot and should be wiped from the books.

The FCC's reversal reflected the Trump administration's deregulatory philosophy.

"The last administration started DACA without a mandate or even an authorization from Congress or the courts; this administration can therefore end DACA at any time", Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a statement Monday night.

Lyle Denniston has been writing about the Supreme Court since 1958.

"It is assumed that the Court of Appeals will proceed expeditiously to decide this case", the Supreme Court's February order read. His work has appeared here since mid-2011.
