We can go into a long spat over right and wrong, and illegal immigration, but what’s at issue here is federal courts are ruling to keep an illegal executive order in force! The order was actually a memorandum to DHS to not follow the law and break the rules. DACA is not and never was federal law, and for that matter neither is the DREAM Act, yet it’s treated as such to this day. For those unclear let’s rewind back to 2012 when obama initiated it:
“Secretary Napolitano announced new actions my administration will take to mend our nation’s immigration policy, to make it more fair, more efficient, and more just — specifically for certain young people sometimes called ‘Dreamers.'”….
Obama knew it would not hold up in court because in 2010 he stated, “I am not king. I can’t do these things just by myself.”
March 2011, “respect to the notion that I can just suspend deportations through executive order, that’s just not the case.”
May 2011, obama said I can’t “just bypass Congress and change the law myself. … That’s not how a democracy works.”
DREAMers are illegal aliens, they like their parents, have no Constitutional rights let alone the legal right to be here, let alone receive preferential treatment. This new ruling puts the spotlight on a very troubling and rapidly growing problem in this country with respect to judicial activism. What should have happened with this challenge to the Trump admin was for the judge to throw the case out of court!
Let me say it again for those not following this 100%:
DACA and the DREAM Act ARE NOT FEDERAL LAWS. How can a court enforce an illegal (as obama has admitted) unconstitutional executive order!?
Now tell me again the US is not a Banana Republic.
