Appeals court rules that Trump can't end DACA


WASHINGTON A federal appeals court ruled Thursday that President Donald Trump cannot end an Obama administration program that protects undocumented immigrants brought to the United States as children.

A panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit agreed with a federal district judge's decision in January that Trump lacked the authority to eliminate the program a proposal the president made last year in hopes of prodding Congress to act.

"Plaintiffs are likely to succeed on their claim that the rescission of DACA at least as justified on this record is arbitrary, capricious, or otherwise not in accordance with law," the three-member panel said.

The decision leaves in place for now the popular Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program known as DACA, which has protected more than 700,000 undocumented immigrants from deportation and enabled them to get work permits.

But the Justice Department is expected to appeal the ruling to the Supreme Court, which now has five reliably conservative justices. The high court in February refused to leap-frog the appeals court's review of Judge William Alsup's decision.

Two other federal appeals courts also are reviewing the dispute between the Trump administration and the states, local governments, and immigrant rights groups fighting to maintain the program.

3. Lil trumpie (small in both brains) runs to Kavarape who of course rules for him.

Just hope RBG feels well enough to take part in this vote so she can write a great dissenting opinion. The SCOTUS is our enemy, almost as much as drumpf is.
