Default 9th Circuit rules President cannot end DACA program

Federal appeals court rules against Trump administration effort to end DACA program

WASHINGTON – A federal appeals court ruled Thursday that President Donald Trump cannot end an Obama administration program that protects undocumented immigrants brought to the United States as children.

A panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit agreed with a federal district judge's decision in January that Trump lacked the authority to eliminate the program – a proposal the president made last year in hopes of prodding Congress to act.

"Plaintiffs are likely to succeed on their claim that the rescission of DACA — at least as justified on this record — is arbitrary, capricious or otherwise not in accordance with law," the three-member panel said.

"In a world where the government can remove only a small percentage of the undocumented noncitizens present in this country in any year," the panel said, DACA lets it "devote much-needed resources to enforcement priorities such as threats to national security, rather than blameless and economically productive young people with clean criminal records."

The decision leaves in place for now the popular Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program known as DACA, which has protected more than 700,000 undocumented immigrants from deportation and enabled them to get work permits.

The court noted it was created because of the "cruelty and wastefulness of deporting productive young people to countries with which they have no ties."

But the Justice Department is likely to appeal the ruling to the Supreme Court, which now has five reliably conservative justices. The high court in February refused to leap-frog the appeals court's review of Judge William Alsup's decision.

Two other federal appeals courts also are reviewing the dispute between the Trump administration and the states, local governments and immigrant rights groups fighting to maintain the program.

The 9th Circuit decision explores more than 100 years of presidential administrations deciding that not every law must be enforced 100% of the time, and that not all people should be punished for every violation.

The opinion cited President Ronald Reagan’s decision to protect relatives of undocumented immigrants who were granted amnesty in 1986 and President Dwight Eisenhower’s decision to protect over 30,000 Hungarian refugees in 1956. It found 19 other examples of large groups of foreigners protected from deportation.

The court even cited the case of John Lennon and Yoko Ono, who were nearly deported due to a marijuana possession charge in Britain but were ultimately allowed to remain in the U.S. because they were not priorities for deportation.

Look for Twitler to appeal to the SCOTUS where Judge Boofner, et al, will deliver the gift-wrapped ruling to allow the program to be squashed.

"...is arbitrary, capricious or otherwise not in accordance with law."

Sounds like a basic description of Trump.

The thing is, DACA was established by executive fiat. It's not even a real law.

And yet, it just seems morally right, don't you think?

This fact will fly completely over their heads. You do realize this this... right?

It does. I have a lot of sympathy for DACA kids. Their parents put them in a bad situation. I would like to see a situation where they are able to stay, but I also recognize that there is a political process that needs to happen in order to make something like that permanent. The Democrats don't seem interested in paying the political costs for doing such a thing, which I think is very cynical of them. It should be easy to get this done. Make the trades that need to be made, get the kids legalized, and enforce the border - win/win.

I don't understand why Democrats refuse to do what needs to be done to get DACA made permanent.

The moral thing to do we be to have Congress to act. They can pass DACA into law (the proper path), and that is what the President asked for almost a year ago. This will go to the SCOTUS and it will be interesting to see their response. I don't think it will be what people expect.
