Chief Justice Roberts’ opinion on the DACA case was very clear. It wasn’t that the program could not be ended, but that there is a right way to go about it and the administration failed to do so. “The dispute before the Court is not whether [Department of Homeland Security] may rescind DACA.

From TheHill.com story on the decision, “In both the census and DACA cases, the Supreme Court’s decision was guided by a federal statute called the Administrative Procedure Act, which concerns how much decision-making power resides with federal agencies.
