Former President Barack Obama has praised the Supreme Court ‘s decision to uphold the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA) and said that he is happy for young people protected from deportation, according to ABC News.

In its decision, the Supreme Court said that the Trump administration failed to provide adequate support for its decision to do away with it. The DACA program, which was created during the Obama administration, allows undocumented children who were brought to the United States the opportunity to live and work without being deported. President Donald Trump has been trying to dismantle it, stating that Obama overstepped his authority, but the Supreme Court ruled that Trump’s action was an “arbitrary” and “capricious” violation of the law.

Obama made a statement via Twitter after the ruling was announced.

The former president followed up that Tweet by encouraging voters to elect former Vice President Joe Biden in November.

And as can be expected from President Trump, he took to Twitter to voice his disapproval of the ruling and to encourage voters to re-elect him to a second term.

Earlier today, the president stated that the Supreme Court “punted” on the ruling and that his administration plans on “submitting enhanced papers shortly.”
