A Second Federal Court Rebuffs Trump on DACA

Not sure I get it.

I don’t think all these people should go home. I think the DACA issue should be worked into a general compromise on immigration in which most illegals are deported, a wall is built, etc.

But how is that Barack Obama can make an executive order, but Donald Trump can’t rescind it?

According to the Washington Examiner:

A second federal appeals court on Friday ruled against the Trump administration in its attempt to roll back the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program and said its decision to do so was unlawful.

A divided three-judge panel on the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said in its ruling that the Department of Homeland Security’s decision to rescind the DACA program violated federal law because “it was not adequately explained and thus was arbitrary and capricious.”

The Richmond-based federal appeals court is the second appeals court to rule against President Trump in his attempt to wind down the DACA program, which was implemented by the Obama administration in 2012 and protected immigrants brought to the U.S. illegally as children from the threat of deportation.

In November, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a lower court order blocking the government from rescinding the DACA program. The San Francisco-based court said then that plaintiffs in that challenge to the administration’s efforts to end DACA were likely to succeed in their claim that the rescission “is arbitrary, capricious, or otherwise not in accordance with law.”

The Justice Department has asked the Supreme Court to take up the dispute over its attempted rollback, though the court has not acted on numerous petitions currently before it.

  1. Hold on here – since when is DACA a “federal law”? Congress never voted on or enacted this thing, to my knowledge.

  2. All the kids being brought across the border now will become DREAMERS II in about ten years.

    Deport them all, the current “DREAMERS” and the batch being brought in. Their beef is with their law-breaking parents who put them in this position, not with American law, which the parents knew about when they chose to flout it.

    I think Trump’s approach of not using an omnibus, pork-laden, unreadable Big Bill is good. Let’s deal with our “broken” immigration system issue by issue.

  3. No wall will ever be built. Congress will never appropriate the money. When the Repubs were in charge from 2017-2019 they didn’t appropriate one nickel.

    1. Where the F@#K were the Repubs in 2017-19 when it came to building the wall?
      Has anyone questioned them why they didnt put anything forward for the wall…?

  4. Keith, isn’t this headline inaccurate? Isn’t it Trump the court rebuffed? “A Second Federal Court Rebuffs Obama on DACA”

    Disappointed these courts are claiming that restoring lawful order is “capricious”. They should have been using that word against the EPA’s & OSHA’s overreaches all this time.
