DACA Immigration Protections Must Continue for Now, Judge Says ... roper.html

Huge headline. This wipes out Trump's plan. He and the Republicans in congress were planning to use the DACA kids as hostages to force Democrats to give in. :lol:

Judge William Alsup of Federal District Court in San Francisco agreed, writing in his ruling on Tuesday that the administration must “maintain the DACA program on a nationwide basis” as the legal challenge to the president’s decision goes forward.

The judge questioned in his ruling the administration’s contention that the DACA program had not been put into place legally. Judge Alsup asserted that the secretary of the Department of Homeland Security has long had the authority to grant the kind of temporary protections that formed the basis of the DACA program.

The judge wrote that previous recipients of the DACA protections must be allowed to renew their status in the program, though the government will not be required to accept new applications for the program from immigrants who had not previously submitted an application. The judge also said the administration could continue to prevent DACA recipients from returning to the United States if they leave the country.

Those miserable Republicans had just spent the whole day getting set to bring it on. They had pushed the issue into the head lines, gotten the talking heads to talking about it. They were rearing to go. :lol:

This legal challenge could go on until the midterm elections have passed. Might even last beyond 2020.

It is an unfortunate human failing that a full pocketbook often groans more loudly than an empty stomach.
