Today the Supreme Court, this Supreme Court, handed a huge blow to the Trump administration by supporting our Dreamers! The Court’s decision is a stinging rebuke of the Trump administration’s ill-conceived attempt to end DACA, deeming it “arbitrary and capricious.”
The DACA ruling comes the same week the Court decided a landmark case upholding the civil rights of the LGBTQ community. These rulings are on the right side of history, and honor the courage and commitment of those who are working for equity and justice.
I never thought I’d be thanking this Supreme Court, but here we are! They knocked down Donald Trump’s viciously cruel attack on our Dreamers. And in part it’s because so many of you love these young people who deserve to stay safely where they belong, here with us! #HomeIsHere pic.twitter.com/U3UmeuAvSd

Our Dreamers are safe and on the way to a permanent solution (Congress you are next!). And part of it is because of the actions of so many of you — the educators who love these kids, the parents who love these kids, and the activists who love these young people who deserve to stay safely where they belong. And they’re ours and we love them and we are so happy for them.
¡Estoy llena de alegría en este momento!
So, wow! We had some real surprises out of this Supreme Court. They knocked down Donald Trump’s cruel — viciously cruel — attack on our Dreamers and said ‘No, you don’t get to do that. You have to follow the law, too.’.
Thank you. Thank you all. This is a great day.
