After losing a Supreme Court decision over the DACA program in June, the Trump administration announced that it will wind down protections already granted to illegal immigrants under the Obama-era policy. The Supreme Court denied President Donald Trump's plan to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which grants a quasi-legal status to some illegal immigrants who were brought into the country as children.
According to NBC News, a Trump administration official said that the Supreme Court decision was a narrow order that allowed for other measures to be taken to "limit the scope" of the program.
