    NAACP sues Trump for ending DACA

    NAACP sues Trump for ending DACA

    By Jacqueline Thomsen - 09/18/17 03:56 PM EDT

    The NAACP on Monday filed a lawsuit against President Trump over his decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

    The organization is also suing Attorney General Jeff Sessions and other Trump administration offices and officials, including Immigration and Customs Enforcement, on behalf of people of color who were eligible for the program.

    The group wrote in a press release Monday that the vast majority of DACA recipients are people of color, including the 80 percent of participants who are Mexican.

    The NAACP is alleging that Trump violated due process, the equal protection clause and regular administrative procedures in deciding to end DACA.

    “This tells us that cancelling the DACA program not only violates the Equal Protection Clause of the Fifth Amendment but also possesses a racially-motivated component,” Derrick Johnson, the interim president and CEO of the NAACP, said in a press release. “Defendant Trump’s nasty, prejudiced sentiment couldn’t be further from the truth.”

    “Immigrants and DACA registrants have been positive members of society; they contribute to community; they open businesses; they pay taxes and they are generally law abiding. Kicking DACA registrants and eligible people out of the country and upending their lives is not the American Way.”

    This is the latest lawsuit filed against Trump for his decision to end DACA. So-called Dreamers sued Trump earlier Monday, in addition to lawsuits filed by several states and the University of California.

    DACAs are not Dreamers, they're Dividers.
