DACA, or the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, is an absolutely horribly structured immigration policy that Obama’s administration established. It allowed children brought to the United Stated illegally to obtain a work permit and be deferred from deportation.
It did not exactly help the 800,000 people in the program, and only encourages people to continue dragging their families in illegally as they find hope in their children being granted immunity.
Donald Trump put a stop to this nonsense, and now people are angry. Of course the people angry are the liberals who think that illegals should be allowed to flood our borders.
Lawsuit Argues That Trump Administration Violates Due Process Rights; Harms States’ Residents, Institutions, And Economies; And Violates The Equal Protection Clause By Discriminating Against DREAMers Of Mexican Origin, Who Account For 78% Of DACA Grantees
Today, New York Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman led a coalition of 16 Attorneys General in filing suit to protect Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) grantees. The lawsuit, which was filed this afternoon in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York, details how the Trump administration has violated the Equal Protection clause of the Constitution by discriminating against DREAMers of Mexican origin, who make up 78 percent of DACA recipients; violated Due Process rights; and harmed States’ residents, institutions, and economies.
“Immigration is the lifeblood of New York State. The Trump administration’s decision to end DACA is cruel, inhumane, and devastating to the 42,000 New Yorkers who have been able to come out of the shadows and live a full life as a result of the program,” said Attorney General Schneiderman. “These DREAMers play by the rules. They work hard and pay taxes. America is the only home they have ever known – and they deserve to stay here and keep contributing to our state and our nation.
