In an interview on "Fox & Friends Weekend," Morgan said the impact of the ruling is a delay, not a defeat. SUPREME COURT RULES AGAINST TRUMP ADMINISTRATION BID TO END DACA PROGRAM "I was really disappointed, both as a commissioner and as a lawyer, that the Supreme Court did just that – they punted.

    A prominent U.S. attorney says New York state has placed the safety of United States citizens in jeopardy after the “Green Light Law” went into effect in December 2019.
