Washington, D.C. – The President of the United States, Donald Trump, on Thursday dismissed as “horrible” the decision of the Supreme Court that prevents him from ending a program that protects undocumented young people known as “dreamers” from deportation, and asked to vote for him in November for a chance to nominate more judges for that court.
“These horrible and politically charged decisions coming out of the Supreme Court are like shotgun blasts in the faces of people who pride themselves on calling themselves Republicans or Conservatives,” Trump wrote on Twitter, in apparent reference to both this Thursday’s decision on DACA. as well as another one this Monday against labor discrimination against people in the LGBTT community.
The decision of the high forum protects some 700,000 young people who came to the country without documents along with their parents, when they were still minors. The DACA program was established by the Barack Obama administration in 2012. The Trump administration decided to cancel it under the premise that it needed to pass a law.RELATED
These horrible & politically charged decisions coming out of the Supreme Court are shotgun blasts into the face of people that are proud to call themselves Republicans or Conservatives. We need more Justices or we will lose our 2nd. Amendment & everything else. Vote Trump 2020!

The highest US judicial forum maintained, in a decision with multiple opinions, that the administrative process that its government followed did not comply with federal regulations.
The base opinion of the court – which has different positions on its parts – was written by the presiding judge, John Roberts, and concludes that the Trump government, although it has the power to implement a new regulation, did not offer an adequate explanation by canceling it.
The four liberal judges – Sonia Sotomayor, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Stephen Breyer and Elena Kagan – joined the opinion of the presiding judge, appointed by Republican George W. Bush.
