Updated Trump administration ends DACA, with 6-month delay 09/27/2018

The Trump administration on Tuesday announced the “orderly wind down” of the Obama-era program that gave a deportation reprieve to illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children – putting pressure on Congress to come up with a legislative alternative.

The Department of Homeland Security formally rescinded the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, known as DACA, with a six-month delay for current recipients. According to Acting Homeland Security Secretary Elaine Duke, the interval is meant to give Congress “time to deliver on appropriate legislative solutions.”

“However, I want to be clear that no new initial requests or associated applications filed after today will be acted on,” Duke said in a written statement.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions, speaking to reporters, blasted the Obama administration's "disrespect for the legislative process" in enacting the 2012 policy. He said the “unilateral executive amnesty” probably would have been blocked by the courts anyway.

“The executive branch, through DACA, deliberately sought to achieve what the legislative branch specifically refused to authorize on multiple occasions,” Sessions said, blaming the policy for the recent “surge” at the border. “Such an open-ended circumvention of immigration laws was an unconstitutional exercise of authority by the executive branch.”

A day earlier, Sessions sent Duke a letter with his legal determination that the 2012 executive action was unconstitutional.

The Trump administration was facing a Tuesday deadline to make a decision on DACA or face legal action by Republican state AGs who hoped to force the president’s hand in discontinuing the program.

Administration officials cast their approach Tuesday at the least disruptive option.

During the 2016 presidential campaign, Trump had promised to terminate DACA, though he appeared to soften his stance since taking office. In ending the program with a six-month delay, Trump put the onus on Congress to pass a legislative fix.

According to DHS, no current beneficiaries will be impacted before March 5, 2018.

“Congress, get ready to do your job - DACA!” Trump tweeted Tuesday morning.

While some Republicans support the goals of the DACA program, many opposed the use of executive action to institute it, describing the move as a presidential overreach.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., is among those who now supports the call to protect so-called “Dreamers” with legislation.

“I have always believed DACA was a presidential overreach,” he said in a statement. "However, I equally understand the plight of the Dream Act kids who -- for all practical purposes know no country other than America. If President Trump makes this decision we will work to find a legislative solution to their dilemma.”

On a conference call, administration officials said Tuesday they are still prioritizing criminal aliens for deportation. But they described the original DACA criteria as very broad and cited the legal determination of the Justice Department.

During the presidential campaign, Trump referred to DACA as “illegal amnesty.” However, he seemed to edge away from that stance in April when he told the Associated Press that DACA recipients could “rest easy.”

The DACA program was formed through executive action by former President Barack Obama in 2012, allowing recipients to get a deportation reprieve – and work permits – for a two-year period subject to renewal. Under the program, individuals were able to request DACA status if they were under the age of 31 on June 15, 2012, came to the U.S. before turning 16 and have continuously lived in the country since June 15, 2007. Individuals must also have a high school diploma, GED certification, been honorably discharged from the military or still be in school. Recipients cannot have a criminal record.

Congress had been considering legislation to shield young illegal immigrants from deportation for years, dating back to the George W. Bush administration. Lawmakers tried again to pass a bill during the Obama administration, but couldn’t muster the votes amid flagging Republican support before Obama formed the program in 2012.

Nearly 800,000 undocumented youth are currently under the program's umbrella.

On Friday, House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., said he supported a legislative solution to protect undocumented minors, but also urged the president to reconsider scrapping DACA.

"I actually don't think he should do that and I believe that this is something that Congress has to fix," Ryan said on radio station WCLO.

AG Sessions should have attacked the Constitutional authority of the lower federal courts to hear a case involving a Ministry of Government... the Executive Branch is a co-equal in governing and therefore cannot be ordered to do anything by a District or Appellate Federal Court. 

It is Constitutionally arguable that the US Supreme Court has no authority to order a President to do anything...  By appealing the case Sessions is accenting to rule by judicial fiat... giving away the Executive Branches powers to a single unelected federal judge. AG Sessions is a lawyer and he sees no problem in granting the courts such unconstitutional power.

The Constitutional recourse for an out of control President is not the courts... it is IMPEACHMENT ... removal.  Once we give the courts the power to order a President to do anything... the Courts become the supreme power in government... This must stop and stop now.  America is being ruled by an oligarchy of federal judges, who have usurped power under the color of law; too, operate our government by judicial fiat.

AG Sessions and the Lawyers in America are a major part of problems facing America... we must return the Federal Courts to their Constitutional role as 'administrators of the law' not legislators or extra-constitutional Executive agents of the government... to rule by judicial fiat.

Not far from the truth... the US Constitution prohibits inferior courts from hearing any case involving a State, a Ministry of Government or a sovereign... The District and Appellate Federal Courts have long engaged in unconstitutional adjudication... see Article 3, Section 2, Clause 2 or the US Constitution.

Article 3, Section 2, Clause 2 below:

"In all Cases affecting Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, and those in which a State shall be Party, the supreme Court shall have original Jurisdiction. In all the other Cases before mentioned, the supreme Court shall have appellate Jurisdiction, both as to Law and Fact, with such Exceptions, and under such Regulations as the Congress shall make."

The US Supreme Court is supposed to be the ONLY COURT with Constitutional Jurisdiction to judge cases involving a State or Ministries... the Administration.  Congress doesn't have the unilateral power to amend the Constitution's restrictions on the lower Federal Courts... when it comes to hearing cases involving a State or administration/ministry.  Too, provide the lower courts with jurisdiction to hear such cases would require a Constitutional Amendment and the approval of 3/4ths of the States.

The inferior Federal Courts are acting under the 'color of law'... as they are not empowered with the Constitutional judicial authority to hear any case involving a STATE or the Ministries of Government... the Administration.

See:  Article 3, Section 2, Clause 2

"In all Cases affecting Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, and those in which a State shall be Party, the supreme Court shall have original Jurisdiction. In all the other Cases before mentioned, the supreme Court shall have appellate Jurisdiction, both as to Law and Fact, with such Exceptions, and under such Regulations as the Congress shall make."

Congress may not assign such jurisdictional authority to the lower courts... as the CONSTITUTION HAS ASSIGNED ORIGINAL JURISDICTION TO THE SUPREME COURT.   Congress must AMEND the Constitution and get 3/4ths of the States to agree to allow District and Appellate Courts to hear such cases. 

It was never the intent of our founders to provide the lower courts... one judge or a panel of three judges with the power to deny the sovereign law of any State or to interfere with the exercise of Constitutional powers by any of the Ministries of government. That is reserved for the US Supreme Court. 

If the Supreme Court finds itself overloaded...  let Congress expand the Court... create DIVISIONS within the Court, as necessary.. .IE:  A Criminal, Civil, and Sovereign's Division (States and Ministries, etc.) assigning jurisdiction within the limits of the Constitution, as needed, granting each Division of the US Supreme Court the jurisdiction needed to hear the various cases brought before it... in accordance with the limits established in Article 3, Section 2, Clauses 1 and 2.

ALERT --> Minnesota Elects First Muslim Congresswoman In US History!!!

Minnesota voters sent Somali immigrant Ilhan Omar of the DFL party to Congress on Tuesday night after she defeated Republican candidate Jennifer Zielinski by a 78-22% margin.

Omar and Michigan House candidate Rashida Tlaib (D) both became the first two Muslim-American women to serve in Congress after their election victories on Tuesday, November 6, 2018.

Yesterday Ilhan Omar won her election in Minnesota, becoming the first Muslim woman elected to Congress.

Today, she had to appear before a judge for her hearing regarding ethics violations.

It’s been less than 24 hrs since she won and she’s already in court for her corruption.

2,159 people are talking about this

Omar, along with being the first Muslim women elected to Congress is also the first Somali-American member of Congress, a seat in Minnesota’s 5th Congressional district which was previously held by Keith Ellison, who was the first Muslim ever elected to US Congress. Minnesota’s 5th Congressional district has not elected a Republican to Congress since 1962. The district includes Minneapolis and its surrounding suburbs.

The Minnesota state congresswoman ran a progressive platform which included “Medicare for all,” criminal justice reform and abolishing Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

Omar, a Somali refugee, came to the U.S. at 12 years old, which is why she often attacks President Trump‘s travel ban against a number of Muslim-majority countries which happen to be terror hotbeds.

In August, Investigative Journalist Laura Loomer confronted both Ilhan and Tlaib, who have both expressed hatred for Jewish people and who are campaigning with pro-HAMAS Linda Sarsour and CAIR, which has been designated as a terrorist organization by the United Arab Emirates.

When Loomer confronted Tlaib at one of Ilhan’s campaign events, Tlaib assaulted Loomer, and a police report was filed.

Omar’s campaign and election, however, are still clouded in controversy. Omar has been accused of marrying her brother and committing immigration fraud.

The day after her victory, Omar appeared in court to face a judge about the campaign finance violations she has been accused of.

Ilhan Omar was also arrested in 2013 for trespassing.

This is Ilhan Omar.

She won an election last night & is now the first Somali woman elected to US Congress.

This is her mug shot.

Along w/ being a criminal, as you can see, she committed immigration fraud by marrying her brother so he could get a green card.

Good riddance.

Omar has also faced criticism for her ties to CAIR, campaigning with jihadi activist Linda Sarsour, Keith Ellison, who has been accused of domestic violence, and her public display of anti-Semitism, all of which has been either under-reported and ignored by the local Minnesota media.
