On Tuesday the United States Supreme Court heard three cases regarding the Trump administration’s decision to end DACA — the Obama-era program that has allowed 800,000 young illegal immigrants to avoid deportation. It appears the Court is leaning in favor of allowing Trump’s decision, NBC News reports.

The oral arguments, which lasted nearly an hour and a half, displayed a near split in thought between the conservative and liberal justices. The current demographics of the Court consist of five conservative justices and four liberal justices. The correspondence revealed a unified position among the liberal justices and a unified position among the four conservative associate justices, with the conservative Chief Justice Roberts appearing torn on the matter.

A decision is expected to be handed down in Spring 2020.
