    AG Sessions Blasts Obama Amnesty: ‘Lawfully,’ DACA ‘Cannot Be Defended’

    Attorney General Jeff Sessions defended his ending of a President Obama-created temporary amnesty program for illegal aliens, saying it “cannot be defended” under the Rule of Law.

    In a speech to the Federalist Society, Sessions — a pioneer of the immigration in the national interest movement — blasted the Obama administration’s creation of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program that has given temporary amnesty to nearly 800,000 illegal aliens.

    “Similarly, no Cabinet Secretary has the power, through guidance, letters or otherwise, to wipe entire sections of immigration law,” Sessions said. “But that’s what the previous administration did with its Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, policy.”

    “Under DACA—without the consent of Congress—individuals here illegally who met certain criteria were granted not only lawful presence but work authorization, and the right to participate in Social Security, which unlawful immigrants are not entitled to have,” Sessions continued. “So no matter what one thinks about the immigration issues and policy, it cannot be defended in my opinion lawfully.”

    “Once again, the Department advised and the administration put an end to it—and it is being ended now.”

    In September, Sessions announced on behalf of President Trump’s administration that the DACA program would officially end in March 2018 and applications for illegal aliens to sign up for the program would end in October 2017.

    Most recently, Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Acting Secretary Elaine Duke directed that the United States Immigration and Citizenship Services (USCIS) agency reopen the DACA program to allow more than 100 illegal aliens to gain temporary amnesty status before the program is ended. Applicants who can show “individualized proof” of mail delivery problems can reapply for extensions.

    Meanwhile, Trump’s nominee to lead DHS, Kirstjen Nielsen, has confirmed that she will proactively work with members of Congress to help push an amnesty for DACA illegal aliens, despite the potential 9.9 million to 19 million chain migration that could follow such a decision and the negative impact it would have on America’s working and middle classes.

    I think Sessions is going to get proved right on this. Trump is not grasping the weight of political order when he thinks that, possibly, DACA could be defended. He is thinking with his heart, not with his head.

    Another bad Trump hire in the making!

    Then why is the program still running under Donald Trump without visible protest from our Attorney General Jeff Sessions instead of being ended day 1???

    I think continuing the program is all on Trump. Remember, it was he that said he would personally consider extending the program should the U.S. Congress not work out a fix in the six months they've been allotted. Sessions, being a cabinet member, probably doesn't think arguing with Trump publicly over this would be very career enhancing since Trump has the power to fire him. Imagine who we would get if Sessions was fired.

    This is the kind of stuff that scares the sh*t out of me and almost makes me just want to throw my hands up in the air and say "I give up, we're royally screwed". But it's not like me to just lay down and die, and allow the invaders to win. It just really baffles me why our own government is trying to screw us over in support of people who aren't even supposed to be here.
