WASHINGTON — A federal judge in Texas on Friday declared illegal the federal program that has allowed nearly 800,000 young people brought to the U.S. illegally as children avoid deportation and remain in the country.
U.S. District Court Judge Andrew Hanen in Brownsville, Texas, said the Obama administration failed to follow federal administrative rules in launching the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program in 2012. But he put the effect of most of his ruling on hold while the case is appealed.
Why do they keep beating the dead DACA , it died years ago
EVERYONE has known this was not legal since the ineligible Kenyanesian Usurper started it.
It should have been stopped before it started with a law suit by Republicans, but they wanted amnesty anyway they could get it.
DACA was illegal.
So, was the presidency of Obama.
DACA was never a executive order, just policy. The admin justified cancelling daca in the least prepared ways.
As Biden opens the border fence and says, “DACA, we don’t need no stinkin DACA …”
Not so sure the corrupted SCOTUS would put the nail in the coffin. Probably deem it fully legit.
Better than nothin'.
Have any of these dreamers gotten time off for good behavior yet?
Interesting that he had the bones to send it back to SCOTUS and see if there's any fresh interest in overruling Department of Homeland Security v. Regents of the University of California.
And if Big K and Little Amy both fail to turn on Roberts (who wrote Regents) and align this time with Alito/Thomas/Gorsuch to a conservative majority, then we know for sure.
Give that man a kewpie doll!
woman...she/her are my preferred pronouns /s
I am of the opinion that DACA is not actually dead until one of two conditions occur for every single DACA “recipient”:
1) A person under DACA applies for and receives citizenship
2) They are deported
These dreamers were brought in by adults when they were at an age when they were NOT criminally libel. The administration probably would not want to discourage the adult DACA children who have now been bought and paid for through our education system and other help sources from now joining our work force. Businesses (many owned by Republicans) are screaming they can’t find enough workers.
