The Supreme Court did not rule against DAPA and DACA+ today. It simply didn’t rule. As a result, immigrant families deserve a renewed push to ensure that today’s partisan deadlock is not the final word on DAPA/DACA +.
The 4–4 split among the 8 justices in U.S. v Texas means, legally, that the Court did not make a decision. Anyone who imputes some constitutional principle from it, like Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, Speaker Paul Ryan and many of their fellow Republicans, either doesn’t understand the Constitution and the Courts or is just willfully misleading everyone — or both.
