The trouble with this ruling is that it gives the Trump administration the out by simply presenting a "reasonable" explanation for canceling DACA. Who decides what is reasonable? Will that determination be up to the Supreme Court? Obviously is what is needed is for the Democrats to control both houses of Congress and a Democrat President, and then a law can be passed that makes DACA permanent. That should happen before the Supreme Court has to decide "reasonableness".

I actually think this current administration would pass a DACA bill if passes by both houses of Congress....both Dems and R's are pandering for the vote! Nancy won't even concider it though, as she doesn't want this administration getting credit for passing DACA....

I feel sorry for all the deserving immigrants who came here "by the book". So much time, money and energy wasted when they just should have walked in or overstayed a tourist visa. Trump has the right to revoke it just like Obama had the right to enact it by executive order. Law is the law and illegal immigration is illegal immigration.
