38. There is a difference between what President Obama did

with DACA and what Trump seems to proposing to do.
The Obama Administration wasnít refusing to enforce immigration law. DACA acknowledged that there were too many undocumented immigrants for the system to handle. Therefore in enforcing the law it was explicitly going to focus deportation efforts on people who posed a threat because of criminal convictions or other issues which would ordinarily make them ineligible to attain legal immigrant status. DACA was a way to manage a class of undocumented immigrants and give them an official status until immigration law caught up to their status and gave them a path to permanent resident status and eventually citizenship.

What the Trump Administration seems to be trying to do is enact new law by executive fiat. He might be able to further eviscerate the Affordable Care Act through this method but itís hard to see how any but the most Trumpist jurist goes along with him creating new law out of thin air.

And John Yoo is a hack who should have been prosecuted for war crimes.
