A federal judge, who back in 2015 took on the Obama’s illegal amnesty and threatened Obama attorneys for their deception but never actually did anything about it, has now ruled against multiple states’ requests to end the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), and he’s chosen to side against the states.
US District Judge Andrew Hanen, who has previously ruled against DACA programs and claims DACA is unconstitutional, said the states waited too long to seek a preliminary injunction and that they couldn’t demonstrate that permitting the unconstitutional program to continue was causing irreparable harm.
Just for a moment, consider what is being said there. A judge believes the program to be unconstitutional, but letting it continue isn’t causing irreparable harm. Yet, he then says that it seems to be causing enough irreparable harm that it would take an act of Congress to actually make it “lawful.” Pay attention to his analogy.
“Here, the egg has been scrambled,” Hanen wrote in his ruling. “To try to put it back in the shell with only a preliminary injunction record, and perhaps at great risk to many, does not make sense nor serve the best interests of this country.”
“If the nation truly wants to have a DACA program, it is up to Congress to say so,” Hanen wrote.
This is a judge that believes it is unconstitutional and wants to talk about scrambling eggs and filing an injunction doesn’t make sense nor serve the best interests of the country?
Then on top of that, he says Congress has to say so if they want a DACA program which is already in place as policy.
What sort of logic is he working under? It appears none.
If DACA is unconstitutional, then the judge should never have uttered a word about “waiting.” Furthermore, he should never have said, “If the nation truly wants to have a DACA program, it is up to Congress to say so.”
What he should have done was ruled in favor of the injunction, and done his job, unlike how he failed to act in 2015 and that mess continued.
Fox News reports:
“As the Justice Department has consistently argued, DACA is an unlawful attempt to circumvent Congress, and we are pleased the court agreed today,” Justice Department spokesman Devin O’Malley said.
On Friday, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton said he was confident the courts would ultimately find DACA unconstitutional. He said an injunction was denied only because the states waited too long to request it.
Texas was joined in filing the lawsuit by Alabama, Arkansas, Louisiana, Nebraska, South Carolina and West Virginia. The states argued that former President Barack Obama never had the authority to create a program like DACA because it circumvented Congress.
So, the DOJ is pleased with the ruling as DACA continues. Meanwhile, the states were trying to do the right thing to stop the unlawful policy that is not rooted in law.
I’m pretty sure that if the states wanted to, they could have provided proof of irreparable harm to the states and its citizens, not to mention that letting those in government facilitate their unconstitutional actions and policies is incredibly harmful to justice.
Anyone who thinks this is a good thing needs to seriously consider what they are advocating. In my opinion, with this move and previous inactions by Hanen, including inaction on the fraudulent document evidence of Barack Hussein Obama Soetoro Sobarkah given to him, it seems to me that he needs to be impeached.
