After repeated rulings from leftist judges, these states are arguing that Obama, or any president’s ruling, is unconstitutional.
In response to an activist judge’s ruling to preserve the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival program, Texas and six other states have filed a lawsuit over the dangerous program that provides blanket amnesty to millions of illegal aliens, according to Fox News.
On Tuesday, Texas and the other states filed a lawsuit against the federal government to end DACA, the unconstitutional amnesty program signed into law in 2012 by former President Barack Obama. Obama lied t the American people repeatedly, saying that he couldn’t bypass congress, but that’s exactly what he did while liberals and RINOs did nothing.
Some 800,000- 2,000,000 illegal aliens think they have the right to stay here because they were brought to the U.S. by their parents, who also weren’t legally authorized to be in the U.S.
President Donald Trump‘s administration ended the DACA program last year and gave Congress six months to find a legislative fix to the program. In typical fashion, lawmakers couldn’t agree on anything and the program expired in March.
As such, the Trump administration has been refusing to review and accept DACA applications, but an activist judge on a federal court ruled last month that the administration must restart the program.
Texas and the other six states are gearing up for a big fight, and argue that states should not be forced to adhere to an illegal program that protects criminals. They’re right.
The suit is asking for all DACA applications to be rescinded, or that the Trump administration be blocked from issuing or renewing new requests for the beneficiaries. The lawsuit claims Obama’s 2012 program is unconstitutional, and, therefore, states should not be forced to enforce the program.
Paxton warned that if the DACA program is left intact in its current form, it will set a dangerous precedent that the executive branch (president) can use sweeping authorities without any oversight or approval from Congress.
So, an activist judge has ruled that Obama could unilaterally enact an illegal policy and yet the Trump administration has to explain to the courts why it is reversing that same unlawful policy?
Even when Trump tries to reverse illegal actions and allow Congress to pass laws, activist judges punish him for it. Fortunately, Texas and six other states are suing to reverse Bates ruling and ensure states no longer have to adhere to another one of Obama’s illegal policies.
Here’s Obama in 2014 admitting that there were plenty of immigration laws already on the books, and that taking executive action wasn’t necessary. Amazing how hypocritical he was while endlessly abusing his power!
