The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Tuesday will be the first federal appeals court to hear arguments about President Donald Trump’s decisions to phase out the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. Around 700,000 people brought to the United States illegally as children have been protected by the Obama-era immigration policy. The Trump administration has argued President Barack Obama exceeded his power in implementing the program.
