Blue States Are Looking To Sue Trump To Continue Violations Of Federal Law

Well, this is a heck of a thing

(CNN) Conservative states may have boxed President Donald Trump into announcing an end for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program — but Democratic state attorneys general are already fighting back.

New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman and Washington state Attorney General Bob Ferguson will announce multi-state legal action on Wednesday, according to separate releases from their offices. On Tuesday, California Attorney General Xavier Becerra also announced he was prepared to sue the Trump administration over DACA. (snip)

Now, those state officials’ Democratic counterparts are hoping they can have the opposite effect, succeeding in the courts to reinstate the program that has protected nearly 800,000 young people in its time and currently has nearly 700,000 people enrolled.

So, let me see if I’m getting this right: Trump is essentially ending a program that even Obama admitted was against the law and the Constitution, which protects people from deportation counter to federal law, and Democratic states are suing to keep this lawless program, which wasn’t any more than an executive order? Really? On the bright side, it should be very interesting to see what happens when this ends up in court. Of course, in reality, they probably won’t actually take it to court. This is a spreading awareness type thing, and designed to raise money.

“President Trump has turned his back on hundreds of thousands of children and young Americans who came forward and put their trust in our government. But in terminating DACA, the Trump administration has also violated the Constitution and federal law,” Becerra said in a statement on Tuesday.

No, they put their trust in Obama. DACA was never law. It was never promised by anyone other than Obama. A promise that always had the potential to be overturned. It would be interested to understand how terminating an Executive Order from a previous president violates anything. We had an election. Hillary promised to expand DACA. Trump promised to get rid of it. Trump won.
