When Barack Obama created DACA, there was nothing that said it was permanent program to allow nearly 800,000 illegal aliens to remain in the United States. He created the program by executive order/memo, without going through Congress. Many still say that Obama did not have the legal authority to override federal immigration laws originally passed by Congress.
President Donald Trump announced that he was ending DACA and naturally, liberal anti-American Democrats challenged Trump’s decision. The challenge was heard in a San Francisco court, the most liberal anti-Trump city in all of America and naturally, a liberal judge used the bench to block the President.
Yesterday, the Department of Justice announced that they were taking their appeal straight to the US Supreme Court.
(The Hill) – The Department of Justice is appealing a federal district court judge’s decision to block the Trump administration from ending the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
DOJ said it filed a notice of their appeal to the 9th Circuit Court and intends later this week to take the “rare” step of asking the Supreme Court to bypass a 9thCircuit Court ruling and rule on the merits of the case so the issue can be “resolved quickly and fairly for all the parties involved.”
The Trump administration filed its appeal a week after a federal district court judge in San Francisco said the Obama-era program must remain in place and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) must continue to accept renewal applications from immigrants currently in the program.
In a statement Tuesday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions questioned the legality of the ruling…
If Obama was able to create DACA by the alleged authority of his position, then why is it unconstitutional for Trump to end the same program by the same authority of his position as President? Hopefully, the Supreme Court will see this dichotomy and rule in favor of Trump.
