The Department of Justice plans to ask the U.S. Supreme Court this week to weigh in on its rescission of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals policy, bypassing the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.

Last week, U.S. District Judge William Alsup of the Northern District of California temporarily blocked the Trump administration’s rescission of the DACA policy. The DOJ filed a notice of appeal to the Ninth Circuit in that case Tuesday, but U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a statement the DOJ also wants the Supreme Court to rule on the merits of the case. He said it “defies both law and common sense” that a “single district court in San Francisco” could order the reinstallation of the DACA program.
