Skip to comments.New Supreme Court Ruling A Boon To Trumpís Bid To Defend DACA Cancellation
Posted on 12/09/2017 6:05:05 PM PST by x1stcav
A closely divided Supreme Court allowed President Donald Trump to shield documents relating to the cancellation of DACA, an Obama-era amnesty initiative that extended temporary legal status to foreign nationals who illegally entered the country as children.
The Court divided five to four along ideological lines in a late Friday ruling that temporarily permits the administration to conceal records relating to the program. Justice Stephen Breyer dissented from the decision, joined by Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Sonia Sotomayor, and Elena Kagan.
The ruling is likely a boon to Trumps efforts to defend DACAs termination.
The Department of Justice is pleased with the Supreme Courts decision today putting on hold the district courts overreach, DOJ spokesman Devin OMalley said. The Department of Homeland Security acted within its lawful authority in deciding to wind down DACA in an orderly manner, and the Justice Department believes the courts will ultimately agree.

DACA is not a law, it’s the action of a now departed executive branch.
Why would it be in the courts at all?
An obvious, clear ideological split on the Court. We need another President Trump appointment. Preferably, three more.
How is shading the “matter” a good thing?
The Gorsuch appointment is paying off.
Now we just need two more Trump judges on SCOTUS
He did not have the law on his side
Donald Trump does
Now the Democrats have to live in the world they created
There always seems to be more “court proceedings” required when the SOCTUS rules in favor of the administration but when a ruling on “marriage” happens it’s forever. Interesting.
I don’t get it either.
Bammy did an end run around congress cuz they didn’t vote his way. It’s not even Constitutional. The Constitution gives Congress, not the President, the power to make and to amend the laws.
The 4 that consented, have they even bothered to read the dang thing!! I vote no. Disgusting.
MY GAWD!....I predicted that long before the decision!...The MSM needs to hire me quick....Ill pretend Im a lawyer knowing all the nuances and make a fortune by always being right!!!
Trump extended DACA. It’s his baby as of now.
No basis or precedence in law whatsoever. Just another Obola decree.
DACA is an illegal program started illegally by an illegal President.
If we had an opposition party it would have been squashed in 2012.
“Why would it be in the courts at all?”
Because the courts have been corrupted and politicized by the left. The ends justify the means...their oaths to uphold and defend the Constitution don’t mean sh!t.
If we had a party that cared about the Constitution, the Kenyanesian Usurpation would never have happened.
If we can get 8-16 years of Trump and Pence the all of the federal courts will be solidly conservative.
I tell you what.
If we are not filing lawsuits against everything a libtard president ever does in the future, we are idiots.
They started it and they are gonna die by it.
Agree. Trump is all over the place on this issue.
Against DACA. But asks congress to send him a massive amnesty bill.
Campaigns on “Building a Wall”. But signs multiple spending bills that don’t fund it.
Meanwhile family-based immigration continues to pour the third world into our homeland at Obama/BushJunior rates.
Not me. California is part of the United States and should remain that way. I lived there for a few years and many people there are conservative and good Americans. If not for the big cities, it would be a red state. Also, the land and resources there are phenomenal. No way should we be giving that up.
