AG Paxton Asks U.S. District Court to Declare DACA Unlawful So That Immigrant Children Can Be Hurt!!
Monday, February 4, 2019 AUSTIN – Attorney General Ken Paxton today filed a multistate motion for summary judgment with the U.S. District Court for the Southern District
Which End of the Donkey is AG Paxton?You know that it takes a particular kind of southern end of a north facing donkey to try to undo something that was not challenged for 6 years. It must give Paxton and his little group of racists (it can*t be the whole party can it? ) a particular pleasure to hurt and scare a vulnerable population that contribute tremendously to the economy.
DACA unilaterally granted lawful presence and work authorization to nearly one million unlawfully present aliens without congressional authorization. Last August, one district court concluded that DACA is unlawful, and it confirmed that Texas is likely to win its multistate lawsuit to end the program. But the court stopped short of issuing a preliminary injunction of an ongoing government program.
Only One Judge has ruled against (DACA) & the History of Executive Authority in three sentences.I might point that Judge Haasan is the ONLY Federal Judge in the entire Untied States that has ruled this way. The District Court could have issued an injunction but chose to do so because Texas waited so long to challenge the first Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). Even that Judge was not willing to let Paxton screw these young people. Every other Federal District Judge and Federal Appealate court has had a different opinion.
What Paxton does not tell you is that there is a history of executive action in use all the back to when President George Washington issued an order to the Treasury to release funds to fund the Continental Army. Of course, I am sure that Paxton forgot about one of the most famous Executive Authority; the Emmancipation Proclamation!!!!!
And does anyone remember the Tax Amnesty that occurred in the mid 1980s? That was an exercise in Executive Authority and prosecutorial discretion. This by the way, is the same prosecutorial discretion that President Obama used to create the DACA.
Paxton Continues to Lie. This is not about the rule of law; it's about feeding red meat to Trumpets!*Our lawsuit is about the rule of law, not about the wisdom of any particular immigration policy,* Attorney General Paxton said. *DACA is just as illegal as the Obama-era Deferred Action for Parents of Americans program, which a Texas led multistate coalition blocked by challenging it in a court case that went all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court. Last August, the district court acknowledged that Congress has the sole authority to write immigration laws, and the president is not free to disregard those duly-enacted laws. We*re asking the court to grant summary judgment declaring DACA unlawful.*
Really? The decision to not put a certain category of person into removal proceedings is clearly an exercise of prosecution discretion. That is what President Obama did for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). The first DACA was not challenged by anyone. Until, this most recent challenge that is!!!! Only a small percentage of Americans want an end to the DACA program. Most want a common sense comprehensive reform.
The Gang At the Justice Department That Can*t Shoot Straight! Paxton Tells a Whopper!In 2017, President Trump agreed to phase out DACA by March 5, 2018, after Attorney General Paxton led a multistate coalition requesting he do so or face a court challenge. Following several court rulings blocking the U.S. Department of Homeland Security from rescinding DACA, the Trump administration petitioned the U.S. Supreme Court to take up the case.
Paxton claims that those cases remain pending before the U.S. Supreme Court. But the reality is that there are no DACA cases currently pending before the Supreme. In fact, the Supreme Court just last week refused to hear the Trump appeal to them to hear the DACA cases early. You have to ask Paxton why he told that whopper!!!
The gang that can not shoot straight at the Justice Department can not get any court in the United States to allow them to repeal Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). The Trump Administration at first tried to repeal DACA because the were afraid that they were going to lose in court from the threat from Paxton. That simply was not enough as two district courts and two courts of appeal have already ruled. There is another court that is considering the issue. Still, if anyone at the Justice Department would or could read the Administrative Procedure Act (a law) they would know what they have to do. But that would require a notice in the Federal Register (another law) and time for comment and then a publication of the final rule. That would or could lead to court challenges. So simply ignoring the law and the APA is not enough.
Fear is not a legal reason. Neither is racism.
