Skip to comments.U.S. appeals court rules against Trump on DACA immigration program
Posted on 11/08/2018 10:38:45 AM PST by Oldeconomybuyer
A U.S. appeals court in California ruled on Thursday that President Donald Trumps administration must continue a program begun under former President Barack Obama that protects hundreds of thousands of immigrants who were brought into the country illegally as children.
The decision by the San Francisco-based 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals preserves the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program introduced in 2012 that has shielded from deportation a group of immigrants dubbed Dreamers and given them work permits, though not a path to citizenship.
The ruling represented another legal defeat for Trump over DACA, although he has won court victories on other parts of his hardline immigration policies.
On Monday, his administration asked the U.S. Supreme Court to review a federal judges January decision to block Trump from ending the program even before the 9th Circuit had weighed in, an unusually aggressive move in terms of procedure.
Trump has taken a stern stance against illegal immigration. His administration announced plans in September 2017 to phase out DACA, arguing that Obama exceeded his constitutional powers when he bypassed Congress and created the program.

Whats the point of elections or the Constitution?
A U.S. appeals court in California..........................stopped reading at that point.................
How is it that the courts run the immigration system?
9th circuit strikes again...
No surprise. Time for SCOTUS to reverse.
Supreme court, here we come.
Obama is still the President, according to the Ninth Circus apparently.
This is another reason that Sessions is gone. He couldn’t win cases involving the president using the same power every other president has used. Granted, it’s the 9th circuit, but still, a president’s executive orders have to do with how he wishes to execute certain laws.
California..didn’t they use to be part of the US?
Soon to be Slapped down by D.C. California courts are masochists. They love to be slapped. They get off on it. I admit, I like watching it too.
Trump didn’t stop the program, it expired. Are these judges saying the expiration is invalid?
It was never a EO. Obama nor Trump issued a EO. It’s only policy.
The 9th Circuit rules that a POTUS can bind all other future POTUS with an Executive Order.
Impeach these retards.
*Trump didnt stop the program, it expired. Are these judges saying the expiration is invalid?*
That appears to be exactly what they are saying, good reply!
The Obama administration chose to deploy DACA by Executive Branch memorandumdespite the fact that Congress affirmatively rejected such a program in the normal legislative process on multiple occasions. The constitutionality of this action has been widely questioned since its inception.
SCotus will rule for the President 5 to 3
Oh yeah. I’m sure the House will impeach judges.
Liberal judges continue to think they are now the Legislative Branch. This was an executive decision made by Obiewan Obama and can be undone by executive decision.
