The verdict on November 14, 2020, observed that the actions undertaken by purported acting secretaries who didn’t hold their offices properly as per the lawful succession order were considered as having no legal authority.The DACA program was suspended by Chad Wolf while he had unlawfully assumed the position of Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security.
