Trump’s Efforts to End DACA Blocked (Again) by Federal Court – Should Congress Revisit DACA?

by Axios | Updated on 11.8.18

On Thursday, a federal appeals court in San Francisco upheld a lower court order to block Trump's efforts to end deportation protections for undocumented immigrants who came to the U.S. as children.

Why it matters: It's been more than a year since then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions ended DACA, but various court injunctions have kept the program up and running until the Supreme Court weighs in. The Justice Department petitioned the Supreme Court earlier this week to intervene in the case in an effort to prevent it from making its way through the lower courts.

    The spirit of DACA must remain. However, it should be revised and updated for the current situation. To ‘throw out’, young adults who arrived in the US as children is wrong. The young adults have been educated here, are actively working here, pay taxes, (which is more than #45 has done), pay into Social Security, etc.

    If you can't look at this from a humanitarian or humane perspective, let's put it in terms you MIGHT understand. These now young adults were educated here, are working here and contributing to the 'booming' economy the liar-in-chief likes to tout constantly. What happens if you remove all these WORKERS from the economy? Our deficit grows - you remember deficits, right? - that's the thing the GOP promised to get rid of. If the deficit grows due to even LESS money collected in the form of Federal taxes (which is already ridiculously low due to the ill-timed and unfair tax cuts for the richest of the rich among us, the debt also grows. If the debt grows faster than it is currently, this generation, the next generation, and several after that will be straddled with a failing economy and poverty. Is that what all you Republicans want for your children, grandchildren, great grandchildren? If so, I feel sorry for your families. These young people committed NO CRIME. Are NOT on welfare. Are NOT taking ANYTHING from you. Put down the partisan battle axes handed out at rallies and propagandists AND THINK for yourselves. I bet half of the people opposing DACA do not even know what it is!

    Ezekiel 18:20 The soul who sins shall die. The child shall not suffer for the iniquity of the parent, nor the parent suffer for the iniquity of the child. The righteousness of the righteous shall be upon himself, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon himself.

    We need to remove ourselves from the United Nations and destroy every policy we begin as a result of that membership. This migration asylum policy was and is born out of the UN. The loss of America’s sovereignty is a loss of freedom for us and the road to tyranny for the world

    Just end it, it’s giving incentive for people to come here illegally. It’s an awful policy.

    The Appeals Court in California is again abusing its judicial power to push or keep Democrat policy. DACA is not law...it was an executive order issued by Obama. He is undoing an executive order, which is in the constitutional authority of the President. The Appeals Court overstepped it’s authority, and is becoming a tyrannical branch of the government that needs to be checked, by Congress taking back its power and legislating.

    Why did something like that that created with an executive order but now illegal to remove with an executive order. Sounds like another liberal judge writing law from the bench. This federal judge should be impeached.

    These kids are in colleges and universities working there way to be a part of a country they already call their own. Let’s not turn our backs on these kids. I’m sure someone in your life held out a helping hand to help you. How’s about we extend a helping hand to these kids that are being productive and soon to be doctors, lawyers, teachers and so on.... Turn off that fear and hate and join the human race.
