    Texas to Trump: Repeal DACA or Face Lawsuit (Alipac)

    Texas to Trump: Repeal DACA or Face Lawsuit

    Led by Lone Star state, 10 AGs sign letter demanding admin eliminate Obama-era executive amnesty

    • Texas and nine other states are on a collision course with President Donald Trump over a de facto amnesty program for illegal immigrants brought to America as children.



    Trump promised to eliminate the program, known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), which President Barack Obama created in 2012. But Trump reversed course after taking office.

    Now Texas is taking matters into its own hands, threatening to sue unless the administration kills the program by Sept. 5. Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton noted in a letter to U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions that a federal judge blocked Obama from expanding DACA to a larger group of people and blocked implementation of a different program known as Deferred Action for the Parents of Americans (DAPA).




    "For these same reasons that DAPA and Expanded DACA's unilateral Executive Branch conferral of eligibility for lawful presence and work authorization was unlawful, the original June 15, 2012, DACA memorandum is also unlawful," the letter states.

    "The original 2012 DACA program covers over one million otherwise unlawfully present aliens."


    The attorneys general of nine states — Alabama, Arkansas, Idaho, Kansas, Louisiana, Nebraska, South Carolina, Tennessee and West Virginia — signed on to the letter.


    Under DACA, qualifying applicants are protected from deportation unless they commit crimes, and they receive permits allowing them to work legally in the United States.


    The federal judge, in a decision upheld by the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, ruled


    that Obama likely exceeded his authority to create a similar scheme under DAPA and put the program on ice while litigants battle in court. Trump this month formally rescinded DAPA.


    But he left DACA in place. From January through March, the government renewed the permits of 107,524 recipients and issued 17,311 new permits.


    A group of federal immigration agents had initially tried to block DACA, but a judge dismissed the suit on procedural grounds. U.S. District Judge Reed O'Connor expressed agreement with the agents' argument but ruled that they had not exhausted remedies under collective bargaining laws.


    Legal experts have argued that a state — at least one in the jurisdiction of the 5th Circuit, such as Texas — would be on firm ground to challenge DACA now, given the DAPA precedent.

    "We don't think the DACA program is lawful," said Christopher Hajec, director of litigation at the Immigration Reform Law Institute.


    Hajec declined further comment.


    Trump's reversal on DACA prompted the Americans for Legal Immigration political action committee to retroactively rescind its 2016 endorsement. The group's president, William Gheen, praised the move by Texas.


    "DACA makes a mockery of our elections and our laws," he said. "There is no doubt DACA is unconstitutional according to the most basic understanding of the U.S. Constitution."

    Excellent!! I love these comments.

    Yes, DACA is most certainly unconstitutional, because it violates the civil protected rights of nationality. In other words, it cheats the citizens of this country out of their rights to jobs, benefits, low taxes, space, water, education, health care, and safety nets. It is not the role of the US government in any possible respect to authorize in any manner the right of someone in our country illegally to be here taking up space, let alone taking seats in education, beds in hospitals or jobs in the labor market that compete with US citizens, deprive US citizens, cost US citizens, or harm US citizens and illegal aliens do all of the above.

    The Preamble of the US Constitution states it as clearly and eloquently as it can be said:

    We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
    This nation is of, by and for the people of the United States, not illegal aliens. The role of our government is to uphold the US Constitution for our benefit, our "blessings of liberty", our jobs, our space, our security, our incomes, our resources, and our peace and tranquility. Handing out work permits to 1,000,000 illegal aliens simply because they were brought here supposedly by their parents, and how in the hell would you know who their parents are to begin with, is the dumbest damn thing I've ever heard of, which is why a DEMOQUACK WACK-O-DOODLE started this disaster and why we need Republicans and our President Trump to end it, once and forever.

    NO AMNESTY

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