Appeals Court Rules Against White House In Latest DACA Decision

When the White House unveiled President Trump’s new immigration plan earlier this week, Sarah Sanders said the issue of DACA was left unaddressed because it’s just too controversial. Better to leave that one to the Supreme Court and see where the chips fall.

Not two days later, a federal appeals court in Virginia has ruled against the Trump administration, upholding an earlier determination that Trump’s attempt to rescind DACA protections was unlawful because “it was not adequately explained.”

More from the Hill:

A split federal appeals court on Friday ruled that President Trump’s decision to rescind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program was unlawful because “it was not adequately explained.”

The 4th Circuit Court of Appeals in Virginia found that the administration’s termination of the program was “arbitrary and capricious,” in line with a prior ruling from the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals

The ruling comes as the legal battle over the termination of DACA continues. The Supreme Court is weighing whether to hear several cases over the end of the program.

That sounds like an esoteric technicality, but SCOTUS is presently looking at several cases and their implications for DACA, and it’s very likely SCOTUS will issue the final decision on the matter next year.

  1. we should have never been taking in a bunch of uneducated illegals to just dumb down our society .

  2. The stench of the Kenyan’s rotten court appointees will remain for a good while, at least until President Trump is able to cleanse and deodorize the courts with intelligent constitutionally oriented appointees.

  3. Not adequately explained? What is not adequate about saying the program was illegal because it was not authorized by Congress and it used (at least initially) funds not allocated by Congress. The fact that on at least two occasions Obama was told by the Courts that is was illegal and to quit issuing the exemptions but he did it anyway.

    1. Wake up people- WE need to clean out the Liberal Democrats in the 2020 election. It’s up to We The People to get this done. It is long past time when we leave it up to the current elected officials to act on the people’s behalf. Our President needs our help and we had better step up to the plate on election days all across the country to vote Rinos and Democrats out to prevent more of the same.
