Tim Balk, NY Daily News, June 2, 2023

"A Texas judge who ruled two years ago against the legality of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program heard oral arguments on Thursday in a high-stakes challenge to a revised version of the policy. The Biden administration has been fighting in court for years to protect the decade-old, Obama-era program, which shields from deportation some 600,000 immigrants, known as Dreamers. ... Stephen Yale-Loehr, a professor of immigration law at Cornell University, predicted that if the Texas case makes it to the Supreme Court, the court would not issue a final ruling before June 2025. “Litigation takes time,” he said. “No one should worry that the DACA program is going to end tomorrow.”
