Federal Judge Says There’s No Good Explanation for Ending DACA

Written by JoAnn Chateau

Yesterday, D.C. federal judge John Bates ruled the Trump Administration must continue the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA. He said the government’s effort to cancel the program was based on “virtually unexplained” claims.

I love that. “Virtually unexplained” is quite a tactful way of putting it!

Although DACA is not completely out of the woods, as the government has 90 days in which to challenge the court’s decision, it is very satisfying to see the Judicial Branch of government in action — counter-balancing unwise, undignified, unkind, unlawful actions emanating from the Executive Branch.

A great America will continue to have an open golden door.

The Statue of Liberty Inscription

Give me your tired, your poor, 
Your huddled masses, yearning to breathe free, 
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore, 
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door.
