A Brooklyn federal judge said in court on Tuesday that he cannot make a decision regarding the status of young undocumented immigrants in the country on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program without considering President Donald Trumps incendiary anti-Latino comments.
The statements that were made during the election cycle were extremely volatile, said Judge Nicholas Garaufis in court, referring to Trumps recurring comments that had painted Latinos with a broad negative brush.
This came from the top. This isnt ordinary, Garaufis added while DACA recipients in the audience nodded. Its not what we see from our leaders, I hope.
New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman appeared in court, leading 16 other attorneys general motioning for a temporary injunction to stop the termination of DACA. The program is quickly approaching a March 5 deadline to cease after Trump called for its orderly wind down on Sept. 5, 2017.

The President orders them all to be rounded up and deported, and they are all rounded up and deported.
Get in the way of that order? Arrested for aiding, abetting, and harboring known fugitives, including this “judge”.
Anything less is capitulation. Let the socialist-democrats kick,and scream all they want. Nobody will hear them. except on visiting days at the supermax.
I guess when a judge wants to spit on the Constitution any excuse will do.
Exactly, it was an EO that has now been rescinded. It doesn’t exist any more.
Yup. He’s grandstanding to become a hero of the Left once SCOTUS inevitably overturns him.

If that’s not grounds to have the outlaw bastard removed from the bench and disbarred, something is VERY wrong.
Democrats = Palestinians.
Furthermore, mass scale immigration involves national defense issues - especially when many of the young men are rushing in from Enemy/aggressive/hostile Muslim societies ( plus the dangerous Mexican gangs. The president is our commander in chief and has primary responsibility in this area
She needs to be drug through the streets for such lies clothed in judicial robes.
She is a bonafide Domestic American Enemy
That’s what I thought (acc to Judge Napolitano)
Who appointed this clown?
Indeed, the idiot judge needs to be removed from the bench for not doing their frakin’ job!
Another black-robed wonder winging it.
