The U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to hear a case over President Donald Trump’s administration to end a program meant to provide legal protections to undocumented immigrants who arrived in the U.S. as children was cheered on Friday by Attorney General Letitia James.

“Millions of immigrant parents left their homes, risked their lives, and endured years of hardship simply to come to the United States and provide their children with a better life,” James said in a statement. “When those children came out of the shadows to go to college, serve in the armed forces, or just become tax paying members of society, the federal government made a promise that these DACA recipients would be able to live their lives free from the fear of sudden, arbitrary deportation.”

The program, known as the Deferred Action For Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, allowed those who qualified to stay in the U.S. and work, avoiding deportation. The program was ended by Trump and challenged in lower courts.

“Over the last two years the Trump Administration has attempted to bully, threaten, and use these young immigrants as bargaining chips, but the Supreme Court will now hear their case,” James said. “These young immigrants should know we will never stop fighting to uphold their rights and protect their freedom.”
