Donald Trump has left hundreds of thousands of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) young people twisting in the wind. The president was furious when he found out we have a court system to balance out this mad king of Trumpveria.
Thanks to the mainstream media, we can imagine the president in his White House bedroom with cable news blaring on the TV sets as he tweeted away. This early morning tweet called the courts “broken and unfair:”
‘It just shows everyone how broken and unfair our Court System is when the opposing side in a case (such as DACA) always runs to the 9th Circuit and almost always wins before being reversed by higher courts.’
U.S. District Judge William Alsup, out of San Francisco, halted the Trump-led government from dismantling DACA. The judge can do that as the president challenges DACA in court. What is 45’s next move? He will challenge Alsup’s decision.
White House spokesperson, Sarah Sanders, called Alsup’s decision “outrageous,” The Washington Examiner reported.
‘We find this decision to be outrageous, especially in light of the president’s successful bipartisan meeting with House and Senate members at the White House on the same day.
‘An issue of this magnitude must go through the normal legislative process. President Trump is committed to the rule of law, and will work with members of both parties to reach a permanent solution that corrects the unconstitutional actions taken by the last administration.’
Ironically, the judge handed down his decision on the very same day that the president gathered Democrats and Republicans in the White House to begin DACA discussions and prove he was a “stable genius.” President Barack Obama installed the DACA program that now allows 800,000 immigrants to stay in the U.S., because their parents brought them into the country illegally when they were just children. Some of them were mere infants, and most have never known any other country as home.
At that White House meeting, according to The Boston Globe, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) asked Trump if he would support:
‘A clean DACA bill.’
That meant a bill to protect the dreamers without anything else attached to it, such as building the border wall. The president responded, the Boston Globe reported:
‘Yeah, I would like to do it.’
The Republicans around Trump immediately jumped in to correct the president, indicating that the man in the Oval Office had no idea what he was agreeing to in a “clean” bill.
Strangely enough, the White House omitted the president’s words in the official transcript. Later, the White House sent out an email “correction” that restored the comment. However, the administration had failed to insert the correction on the official White House page as of this time.
The Republicans have offered to pass a bill similar to DACA to replace President Obama’s unilateral program, which they always opposed.
In return for this legislation, the Examiner reported that the Republicans want the Democrats to:
‘Boost funding for a border wall, end chain migration, and end the diversity visa lottery system.’
The Department of Justice (DOJ) argued that DACA was a unilateral program installed by Trump’s predecessor. Therefore, it argued that Congress can halt a program that it never authorized.
