DACA now shields about 660,000 immigrants - mostly Hispanic young adults - from deportation and provides them work permits, though not a path to citizenship. Trump's bid to end it is part of his hardline immigration polices.
Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Brett Kavanaugh were among the justices who indicated that the administration has provided sufficient reason for wanting to do away with the program. Justice Sonia Sotomayor referred to Trump's decision as a "choice to destroy lives" and indicated that his administration had failed to supply the required policy rationale to make the move lawful.
"I mean, this is a serious decision".
Or it could rule that the stated reason to end DACA provided by the government is insufficient and compel the government to provide an alternative reason.
Trump's administration has argued that Obama exceeded his constitutional powers when he created DACA by executive action, bypassing Congress. Trump has made his hardline immigration policies - cracking down on legal and illegal immigration and pursuing construction of a wall along the U.S.
On Tuesday, the Supreme Court takes up a case that will determine the fate of the Obama-era program that has allowed about 800,000 young people who entered the country as children, known as dreamers, to avoid deportation.
The legality of Daca, which allows around 700,000 people brought to the U.S. as youngsters to live and work in the country with two-year, renewable authorizations, was not actually the focus of Tuesday's hearing.

Evaluating the Denver Broncos as a fit for Colin Kaepernick
He has completed 1,011 of 1,692 passes for 12,271 yards, 72 touchdowns and 30 interceptions in 69 career games. So, the question now is whether or not the Broncos should entertain the idea of bringing in Kaepernick again.
"What good would another five years of litigation ... serve?"
Justice Samuel Alito posed this hypothetical: Let's say an administration decides not to prosecute drug cases involving less than 5 kilos of cocaine, and the next administration decides to change the amount to 3 kilos. He did not seriously question the administration's argument.
Three federal appeals courts disagreed and ruled that when an administration revokes a policy like this, on which so many people, businesses and even the US economy have relied, the administration must provide a fully supported rationale that weighs the pros and cons of the program, the costs and the benefits. However, Gorsuch questioned whether it was the Supreme Court's place to interfere with the Trump administration's decision to end the program.
Feng, who is now 30 and works in the USA helping adult learners earn their high school equivalency diplomas, said she can not understand why the US government would want to see the country lose a population that has contributed to the country's economy and strengthened its local communities. However, I don't think anyone expects him to side with the four liberals in this case.
Liberal Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg pressed U.S. Solicitor General Noel Francisco, who argued the case for the administration, on the government's reliance on the assertion that DACA was unlawful. Indeed, a friend-of-the-court brief submitted by Democratic members of Congress and a bipartisan group of former members urges the Court to save DACA as a "permissible exercise of the broad discretion that Congress conferred on the executive branch to implement the federal immigration laws".
"They're in our undergraduate student population, some are in our medical schools and our law schools, some have graduated and are now serving as nurses, as teachers, as business owners throughout the economy of California", Napolitano said Tuesday. "Right now, I live on my own with my younger brother, so if they were to eliminate the DACA program permanently I wouldn't be able to help my brother pay for the house".
Trump has given mixed messages about the "Dreamers", saying in 2017 that he has "a great love" for them even as he sought to kill the program that protected them from deportation.
The Supreme Court heard arguments Tuesday on the DACA program, which covers 700,000 young people. Microsoft was the only corporation to sue the Trump administration over DACA. Obama himself seemed spent in his announcement of DACA seven years ago.
