    Trump’s Former DHS Chief Helped Weaken Rescission of Obama’s DACA that Led to SCOTUS

    Trump’s Former DHS Chief Helped Weaken Rescission of Obama’s DACA that Led to SCOTUS Ruling

    July 13, 2020

    The former Acting Secretary for President Trump’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) admits that she helped weaken the legal case for the administration’s rescission of former President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

    In September 2017, then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions rescinded Obama’s DACA program that has allowed nearly 800,000 illegal aliens to remain in the U.S.

    At the time, then-Acting DHS Secretary Elaine Duke — a former DHS official under former President George W. Bush — signed the inter-agency memo to end DACA but now admits she purposefully helped weaken its legal standing by not putting any policy reasons for the program’s rescission.

    Duke said she wanted Congress to pass a DACA amnesty to make sure the hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens enrolled in the program could permanently remain in the U.S.

    The New York Times reported in Duke’s first interview since leaving DHS:

    Ms. Duke said she did not include policy reasons in the memo because she did not agree with the ideas being pushed by Mr. Miller and Mr. Sessions: that DACA amounted to an undeserved amnesty and that it would encourage new waves of illegal immigration. [Emphasis added]

    She said she still agreed that DACA “isn’t a legal program,” but hoped that Republicans and Democrats in Congress would eventually find a way to allow the undocumented immigrants covered by the program to live and work permanently in the United States. [Emphasis added]


    Duke’s refusal to include specific policy reasons for ending DACA was vital to the U.S. Supreme Court’s recent decision that demanded the Trump administration refile paperwork to end the program, as Breitbart News’s Joel Pollack reported at the time:

    In a complex, 5-4 opinion, in which Chief Justice John Roberts joined the Court’s four liberal justices, the majority held that the administration had failed to offer sufficient reasons for rescinding the policy, and had failed to provide enough consideration about what would happen to the 700,000 people who had registered for the DACA program. [Emphasis added]

    Likewise, Duke revealed in the Times interview that she will not yet commit to voting for Trump for a second term against Democrat Joe Biden.

    “That’s a really hard question,” Duke told the Times when asked if she would vote for Trump in November. “But given the choices, I don’t know yet.”

    Duke became Acting DHS Secretary after General John Kelly left the agency as chief to join Trump in the White House as the president’s chief of staff.

    I had a strong belief the order to rescind DACA had been sabotaged by deep state insiders just like Arizona's legal defense of SB 1070 and our entire border security.

    America has been comprimised by Republican and Democrat traitors working to prevent our current border and immigration laws from being enforced and our citizens and jobs from being defended.

    Elaine Duke should be put on trial for treason and sent to jail for this.

    Donald Trump's former Homeland Security chief has revealed that she deliberately undermined the president's attempt to end protection for 'Dreamers' because it ran contrary to her own beliefs.

    Elaine Duke, a lifelong Republican, served as the acting secretary from July 31, 2017 until December 6 of the same year.

    Her short tenure coincided with the president's push to end protection from deportation for 700,000 young people known as 'Dreamers', who were brought to the United States as children.

    Barack Obama had enacted Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), which shielded them from deportation as long as they did not break any laws.


    Elaine Duke, outside the White House in Sept 2017, spoke on Saturday to the New York Times

    Duke's actions in deliberately weakening the policy led the Supreme Court to rule last month that Trump's actions on DACA were unconstitutional.

    Duke, 62, told The New York Times in an interview published on Saturday about her reason for sabotaging the plan.

    She explained that, in August 2017, she had been led into what she believed was a meeting to discuss DACA.

    Instead, she said, it was 'an ambush', with the then-attorney general, Jeff Sessions, waiting for her besides Stephen Miller, Trump's hardline immigration specialist.

    They demanded she sign a memo rescinding DACA.

    She agreed, reluctantly - but in doing so watered it down to make it legally difficult to justify.

    'What was missing for me is really that process of discussing it,' she said.

    'It is a grave decision not only from a legal standpoint but from the effect it will have on not just 700,000 people but 700,000 people plus their families.'

    The bare-bones memo did not include policy reasons for rescinding DACA.

    Instead, it simply said that Sessions had deemed it unlawful.

    She told the paper that she did not agree with the ideas being pushed by Miller and Sessions that DACA amounted to an undeserved amnesty and that it would encourage new waves of illegal immigration.

    She said she still agreed that DACA 'isn't a legal program,' but hoped that Republicans and Democrats in Congress would eventually find a way to allow the undocumented immigrants covered by the program to live and work permanently in the United States.

    Her decision not to cite any specific policy reasons was at the heart of the Supreme Court's ruling, which said the Trump administration had failed to substantively consider the implications of terminating the program's protections and benefits.

    Duke, a 30-year veteran civil servant who volunteered with an immigrant aid group in her free time, knew full well what she was doing.


    The DACA ruling by Trump, announced in September 2017, affected 700,000 people

    She said she supported the president's efforts to tighten immigration security. But the president's 'America First' philosophy has veered toward 'America Only,' she told the paper.

    White House officials have long expressed displeasure with Duke's short tenure as the chief of homeland security, describing her as unwilling to be a team player and resistant to the president's agenda, the paper reported.

    Judd Deere, a White House spokesman, was asked about Duke's actions and said that Trump was doing what he was elected to do.

    Deere said Trump 'has kept his promise to the American people to reduce illegal immigration, secure the border, lower the crime rate and maintain law and order.'

    'He has never wavered in his highest obligation to the American people: their safety and security,' Deere added.

    NO AMNESTY

    Don't reward the criminal actions of millions of illegal aliens by giving them citizenship.

    I doubt anyone here can deny that Trump has had a horrible record with DHS hires. Furthermore, he had a great Attorney General in Jeff Sessions to deal with the many immigration issues we have and ended up firing him. I'm convinced Trump is a bad judge of character and has a difficult time seeing the forest for the trees! The man just doesn't know what's good for his administration or the country when dealing with immigration. Sure, he has made a few good moves, but he could have done so much more with the right people in the positions that counted.
