A federal judge has blocked President Trump from ending the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
The program is supposed to protect thousands of immigrants who were brought to the US as children from being deported.
Judges usurping the power of the executive is getting out of hand. This needs to be addressed. We look like a banana republic. The Constitution and the rule of law must be enforced.
Enough already with fighting the president. Every time Trump tries to fix the broken aspects of our country, we get people like this judge who want to return things to Obama’s time in office. Why not take a poll with all those that came into our country and went through the process of being a United States citizen and see what they have to say?

U.S. District Judge William Alsup granted a request by California and other plaintiffs to prevent President Trump from ending the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program while their lawsuits play out in court.
Alsup said lawyers in favor of DACA clearly demonstrated that the young immigrants “were likely to suffer serious, irreparable harm” without court action. The judge also said the lawyers have a strong chance of succeeding at trial.
DACA has protected about 800,000 people who were brought to the U.S. illegally as children or came with families who overstayed visas. The program includes hundreds of thousands of college-age students.
U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced in September that the program would be phased out, saying former President Barack Obama had exceeded his authority when he implemented it in 2012.
What makes me mad is that Barack Obama could almost do anything he wanted with an executive order and the left cheered and claimed it was within his powers. Trump undoes them and the left goes ape crazy, takes it to activist judges and gets it put back to the way Obama changed it with his executive order.
Obama is not President.
The Republicans need to hold the line and say NO DACA without “The Wall” and DACA ONLY after the border wall is built. It doesn’t matter what the Democrats threaten they need to hold to that. Personally, I’m so fed up with the DACA activists, the Democrats and the activist judges that I’d be perfectly OK if they deported them all along with their families.
How come that same judge didn’t block California from initiating sanctuary City status?? Do we get to decide which laws we follow now? That’ll be fun.
DACA was created unconstitutionally without the approval of our U.S Congress. I didn’t vote to elect this judge as my Commander-in-chief. These liberal Obama judges need to stay out of this for now until we decide what we’re going to do.
