Another federal judge, U.S. District Judge John Bates, has gone
rogue activist in defiance of President Donald Trump. Judge Bates just ruled against the administration over the DACA deal. He commands that the President continue the program and continue to sign up Dreamers. As you will recall, the DACA deal is an Executive Order from President Barack Obama. He tried to get the Congress to work on an immigration plan and when they did nothing he exceeded his powers of President and took over the immigration laws. Now, a President cannot write an Executive Order to rescind an Executive Order. WTH? Here are the details.
As Written and Reported By Avery Anapol for The Hill:
A federal judge on Tuesday ordered the Trump administration to continue accepting Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) applications, dealing a major blow to the administration as it attempts to wind down the program.
U.S. District Judge John Bates, a George W. Bush appointee, became the third federal judge to reject President Trump’s explanation for ending the program, ruling that the decision by the Justice Department that the program was unlawful was “virtually unexplained.”
Trump rescinded DACA in September, giving Congress six months to pass legislation in its place.
Bates ordered the administration to continue DACA, which gives protections to immigrants brought to the U.S. as children.
Bates also ordered the administration to accept new applications, a first in the ongoing legal battles over the decision.
Bates stayed the ruling for 90 days to give the administration time to come up with a better explanation for ending the program.
Two other judges have issued similar rulings, but have only ruled that the program should be allowed to continue while litigation plays out…
