Administration revokes blocked program to protect immigrant parents (Team Trump kills D.A.P.A.)
The Washington Post ^ | 06/15/2017 | Alicia A. Caldwell

The Trump administration is formally revoking an Obama-era program intended to protect immigrant parents of U.S. citizens and legal residents from deportation. The Deferred Action for Parents of Americans program was announced by the Obama administration in 2014 but was blocked by a federal judge in Texas after 26 states challenged the program’s legality in federal court. Kelly formally revoked the policy memo that created the program, which mirrored an earlier effort to protect young immigrants in the country illegally from deportation on June 15.

---------------------------------------------

Homeland Security John Kelly formally revoked a policy memo that created the Deferred Action for Parents of Americans program. The revocation came on the fifth anniversary of another effort that has protected hundreds of thousands of young immigrants from deportation.

The program to protect parents was announced by President Barack Obama in November 2014 but was never fully launched. It was intended to keep the immigrant parents safe from deportation and provide them with a renewable work permit good for two years, but it was blocked by a federal judge in Texas after 26 states filed suit against the federal government and challenged the effort’s legality. Republicans decried the effort at “backdoor amnesty” and argued that Obama overstepped his authority by protecting a specific class of immigrants living in the United States illegally.

Trump will likely keep DACA, IMO.

Since my thread was posted after yours and might get deleted, I want to put my response to the article here:

Trump is of course following immigration law. The left, however, is having a meltdown right now on Twitter. Trump is a monster, he’s cruel, he’s evil, he’s not Christian, we’re a step away from concentration camps (seriously), etc.

First of all, this program was blocked by the Supreme Court after 26 states sued the Obama Administration and was never fully implemented, but don’t let facts get in the way of a good rage.

Second of all, we are a nation of borders and laws. Nations are defined by borders. If we aren’t going to enforce immigration law when people are here illegally, why in the world is it fair to make other people go through the process of coming in through immigrations and customs enforcement and why in the world is it fair to make other people who are trying to become legal citizens go through a long, tedious process?

This would allow 4 million people to stay illegally with work permits, but we know the end goal is amnesty. This program would incentivize people to come in and have a child that is an “anchor” because, why not come and have a child here as it opens up a chance for benefits and a chance to get to stay?

It’s a sad situation, but ultimately, if people break domestic law, we don’t refrain from enforcing it if they have children.

If you look at the numbers on it, it looks like it’s dying without lifting a pen. Daily average of new applicants down to160. That’s half of the previous qtr and way down from program avg of 750.

We’ll probably be stuck with the majority of those in the system now though.

You could tell a leftist that and his/her head would explode.

Isn’t it amazing what the left has done to this country?

At least 60 million illegals, their demon spawn anchor babies and family relations. No wonder Hillary had so many votes.

Apparently the word ILLEGAL is missing from the Headline.

Probably just an oversight like the NYT Editorial slandering Governor Palin.
