How the government reached his conclusion is baffling. There is an existing federal law already on the books that says these people cannot be here.
If someone already had DACA or it expired on or after Sept. 5, 2016, they may still file for renewal. If the program was initiated by executive order and not by congressional action and then canceled by executive order then who is this judge to order it stay in place?
Citizenship and Immigration Services says it’s resumed accepting requests to renew a grant of deferred action under the Obama-era program that shields from deportation young immigrants brought to the U.S. as children and who remain in the country illegally.
The law calls for deportation at the whim of law enforcement. Executive orders do not change existing law. If Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) was a law passed during the Barack Obama administration, then these liberal judges and this decision by the government would have a point. As it is, this is gross misconduct and demonstrates lack of understanding of even the most basic of legal principles.
You guys are showing the world it’s okay to break the law in America. This is a sign of weakness like a liberal snowflake. Letting people walk and step all over you using your kindness as your weakness.
This is a typical example of ideological preferences getting in the way of sound legal reasoning.

The government’s announcement, made without fanfare on a website Saturday, came four days after a federal judge in San Francisco issued an order temporarily blocking the Trump administration’s decision to phase out the program.
In a statement posted on its website, Citizenship and Immigration Services said, “Due to a federal court order, USCIS has resumed accepting requests to renew a grant of deferred action under DACA.”
DACA refers to Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. The program allowed some young immigrants in the country illegally to obtain two-year permits to stay legally, work and attend school.
Saturday’s announcement means that individuals who had been granted “deferred action” may request a renewal. The government is now accepting requests from people who had never been granted DACA status.
Why most of them had 15 to 20 years to do something about it now they crying because they were too lazy to do something about it. Let’s quickly go back when most of us know this so-called DACA fiat set up by Obama is illegal. The court and now the government is ordering a sitting U.S. President to support an unlawful act?
Can someone please explain to me how taking in immigrants helps the world?
Eighty million children are born into poverty every year. President Trump wants to take in the “best of the best” immigrants that could become doctors, hard-working businessmen, or something similar. How does removing these people from their regions help the world?
In my opinion, the ONLY way to truly help the world is to help people where they live. Bringing them here only makes us feel better about ourselves because we can focus on the one family we saved and not the ninety-nine families we let go hungry.
Doesn’t it seem Judges and government types feel they can stop President Trump with these unlawful decisions? SOUND OFF in the comment section and let me know what you think about this decision. SHARE this on your Twitter/Facebook timeline.
