SCOTUS won't review Trump's DACA appeal

The U.S. Supreme Court rejected the Trump administration's appeal of an injunction that has allowed DACA recipients to renew their legal status, despite Attorney General Jeff Sessions announcing the end of the program in September.

Why it matters: The decision essentially makes the March 5th deadline meaningless, and there will be much less incentive for lawmakers to reach an agreement soon. Until a final decision on the case, which experts say isn't expected for another year, current DACA recipients will be able to continue to renew their DACA protections.
