Trump administration trying to end DACA, could shut it down within weeks

TRUMP HAS A PLAN TO END DACA, STARTED IN TEXAS AND COULD GO TO THE SUPREME COURT

The Trump administration is urging a federal court in Texas to declare DACA illegal, setting up a potential conflict that could allow the government to shut the program down within a matter of weeks.

While this latest development has received little attention, it could suspend or stop a federal initiative that has allowed 700,000 young people, known as Dreamers, to avoid deportation.

Ali Noorani, executive director of the National Immigration Forum, said the move could “eliminate work authorization and protection from deportation for nearly a million people who are contributing to our economy.”

Short for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, DACA is the Obama-era policy that allows children of immigrants who came to the U.S. illegally to remain here if they were under 16 when they arrived and if they arrived by 2007.

In a motion filed late Friday, Justice Department lawyers told a judge in Texas that the program violates federal immigration law. Assuming, as expected, that the judge grants the request from DACA opponents and orders the government to stop enforcing DACA, the ruling would conflict with orders from two other federal courts that require continued enforcement of the program.

3. Remember, Trump created this crisis all by himself.

Everything was running o.k. until he stuck his little dick in it.
