Federal Judge Strikes Down DACA

This is where everything goes these days.

It goes into limbo in federal court where these cases are litigated and digested for years. The final outcome often isn’t reached until years later. We’ve been fighting over DACA for eight years now.

NPR:

“A federal district judge in Texas has ruled against the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, striking a blow to the Obama-era policy that has protected more than 800,000 young undocumented immigrants from deportation since 2012.

The largely expected decision leaves the fate of thousands of the program’s beneficiaries, known as DREAMers, in the hands of Congress, the Biden administration and a Supreme Court where conservatives hold a 6-3 majority.

U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen ruled in favor of nine conservative-led states, including Texas, blocking the Biden administration from accepting new DACA applicants – saying the program is not legal.

However, the ruling allows for immigrants currently protected by the program to keep their status and allow DACA renewals while the case goes through the appeals process. …”

This ruling doesn’t apply to the vast majority of DACA recipients. It is more of a speed bump. Still though, there isn’t much good news to report on the immigration front.

  1. DACA was signed into law via Obama executive order in August 2012. The time to block it was right then and there. Shitlib federal judges seemed to have no issue blocking everything Trump tried to get done on Day 1. Why do these “conservatives” take so long to do anything useful, that by the time they do anything about it, the horse has long since left and is miles out the barn?

    • It wasn’t even an Executive Order.

      “ The policy, an executive branch memorandum, was announced by President Barack Obama on June 15, 2012.”

      “ Unlike executive orders, memoranda are not required by law to be published in the Federal Register, but publication is necessary in order to have “general applicability and legal effect”.[3] The Federal Register gives publication priority to executive orders and presidential proclamations over memoranda.[4] Memoranda can be amended or rescinded by executive orders or another memorandum, but executive orders take legal precedence and cannot be changed by a memorandum.”

    • @John – Exactly so! As @KT-88 summed up in the previous thread, apparently it isn’t illegal anymore.

  2. “It goes into limbo in federal court where these cases are litigated and digested for years. The final outcome often isn’t reached until years later.”

    After the irreversible damage has been done.

    I loathe this utterly kike-usurped paradise for shyster lawyers.
