Photo, above: Poor DACA recipient, moaning about cruel Ameria. Listen, I think I can hear her…. “I don’t get enough money from DACA. I need more. My nails, alone, cost $300 a month. How am I supposed to make it?”
DACA is a Democrat Party voter registration drive, nothing more, nothing less. It hurts the American people in more ways than one, beginning with the fact that it is the American people who are paying for these foreign parasites being given benefits that Americans are paying the bill for and their own children are not eligible for.
In short, foreigners are being favored over American citizens and American citizens are forced to pay for it. Is that fair?
No, that is not fair! Neither is it legal. President Trump did the right thing. He is backed by US law and the Constitution. He ended a program Barack Hussein began illegally. I put nothing past the liberal weenies who have found themselves a robe and climbed onto the federal bench, but barring their obstruction, this should be a slam dunk for the Trump administration and America.

A coalition of 15 states and the District of Columbia Wednesday sued Wednesday to stop the Trump administration from revoking the 2012 deportation amnesty for Dreamers, saying the move was arbitrary and amounted to discrimination against Mexicans.
Led by New York, the lawsuit asks a federal court in Brooklyn to preserve the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, program, calling it an important humanitarian protection for hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants.
The lawsuit says that since 78 percent of DACA recipients are Mexican, revoking the policy is proof of the president’s antipathy toward Mexico, which they trace back to his campaign statements.
The states also said that by refusing to rule out using data taken from DACA applicants to assist in some deportations, the government is violating illegal immigrants’ due process rights.
“These young people came to the United States through no fault of their own,” said D.C. Attorney General Karl A. Racine. “Along with my fellow attorneys general, I will stand by these hard-working young people to ensure they are treated fairly and feel safe in the only place they’ve ever known as home.”
In addition to New York and the District of Columbia, the other challengers included Massachusetts, Washington, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Iowa, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont and Virginia.
The Trump administration on Tuesday announced a six-month phase-out of DACA, saying the program was likely to be found illegal by the courts, and could be stopped at any time. Given that, President Trump said the humane option was to end it gradually, giving Congress a chance to pass a more permanent solution.
Immigrant-rights activists and Democratic lawmakers called the move cruel and said Mr. Trump should have fought the legal battle despite low chances of success.
The new lawsuit to try to revive the program will face a number of hurdles, including showing that the states have standing to sue and making a case that the administration’s actions crossed legal lines.
The Obama administration, which created the deportation amnesty in 2012, had said there was no legal right to DACA approval, and immigrants didn’t have a right to demand approval.
Still, several judges have ruled Homeland Security violated its own procedural rules in revoking DACA status for illegal immigrants, suggesting at least some judges are eager to wade into the thorny legal battle.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions, explaining the need for a phaseout Tuesday, said President Obama had overstepped the powers of the presidency and balance needed to be restored.
A Justice Department spokesman said Wednesday that in fighting to preserve DACA, the states are defending a distortion of the Constitution’s system of government.
“As the attorney general said yesterday: ‘No greater good can be done for the overall health and well-being of our Republic, than preserving and strengthening the impartial rule of law.’ While the plaintiffs in today’s lawsuits may believe that an arbitrary circumvention of Congress is lawful, the Department of Justice looks forward to defending this Administration’s position,” said spokesman Devin O’Malley.
