Texas suing to end 'Dreamers' program once and for all - WAFF-TV: News, Weather and Sports for Huntsville, AL

Associated Press

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Texas and six other states are suing to end once and for all a program that would protect some young immigrants from deportation.
The lawsuit announced Tuesday comes a week after a federal judge in Washington ordered the Trump administration to resume the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.
Immigrants under the Obama-era program are commonly referred to as "Dreamers." Republican Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton had threatened legal action for the past year if the program didn't come to a halt.
Joining Texas in the lawsuit are Alabama, Arkansas, Louisiana, Nebraska, South Carolina and West Virginia.
A federal judge in Washington called the Department of Homeland Security's rationale against the program "arbitrary and capricious." He gave the Trump administration 90 days to make a new case.
Tuesday's lawsuit joins a host of litigation related to the program that is not expected to be resolved until the U.S. Supreme Court weighs in.

This should be interesting to watch. The country seems so crazy in willing to accept any and all illegal aliens and the Left which is making the most noise about this through the biased media is trashing Trump for even suggesting that something needs to be done.

What will be interesting is if in 2020 a far Left Dem should win the WH if we will then see mandates that states will be forced to give sanctuary to illegal aliens.

The topic of illegal aliens should be a pretty simple one, if you do not have permission to be in the country then you get arrested and deported but as we have seen there are many misguided Liberals that are willing to go to the mat to protect these people.

I can see elections in 2018 and 2020 come down to this issue. Do we follow existing immigration laws or do we make exceptions? If we do not enforce our immigration laws why even have a border at all?

This will be interesting to watch this unfold.

Of course, AP calls the DACAs "young immigrants". They aren't "young immigrants", they are illegal aliens.

Kudos to those 7 states! I hope other states join them!

I don't get it. Isn't DACA temporary anyway? Wasn't DACA a one-time deal? Don't tell me the recipients expect this to go on infinitum, picking up illegals on the way, even those not yet born? Thus is ridiculous.

And to think we did not have out-of-control illegal alien growth 30 years ago and before. Why did the US become the all-expense paid vacation destination for the rest of the world? At the rate we are going, our culture will be gone within the next decade.

We are a nation of Americans, NOT immigrants. America does have its own culture, at least it did before the influx of foreigners who refuse to assimilate.

Glad our AG is taking the lead and taking action to do the right thing for American citizens and legal residents. All the other states should join and fight this invasion. Glad Trump and our state leaders are taking leadership in getting rid of these Illegals, nationally and locally. Time to deport DACAs with all the other Illegal Aliens.
