DACA Saved! (For Now)

We all know how much the Trumpian thugs hate immigrants and has been trying to end the DACA program….and their latest attack on immigrants has gone down in defeat….as it should…..

Looks like DACA was wrongly suspended this summer because the acting Homeland Security chief didn’t belong there—at least not in the eyes of the law, NBC News reports. Judge Nicholas Garaufis ruled Saturday that Chad Wolf, acting Homeland Security secretary, “was not lawfully serving” in the role when he suspended the so-called “Dream Act” in July. The Obama-era program protects migrants brought illegally to the US as children. The Garaufis ruling means “the effort in the Wolf memo to gut the DACA program is overturned,” said a lawyer involved in the case. “This is really a hopeful day for a lot of young people across the country.”

Garaufis explained that when former DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen stepped down, she was replaced by Kevin McAleenan even though he wasn’t authorized to do so, per Law & Crime. That means McAleenan’s delegation of the position to Wolf was not “authorized” and Wolf’s suspension of DACA “was not an exercise of legal authority,” the judge said. Wolf made the move after the US Supreme Court blocked a Trump administration effort to terminate the program. CBS News reports that the ruling affects hundreds of thousands of people who can be shielded from deportation by DACA. CNN reports that the US government can appeal the ruling.

You realize that they use that immigrants are a drain on our resources and country…..well that may not be true at all….

The administration has said that refugees – those forced to leave their country to escape war or persecution – do not benefit the U.S. economy. It has portrayed refugees as a drain on resources and argued that a lower number of refugees is required to prioritize the well-being of Americans.

This feeds into the perception among some Americans that immigrants come to this country and either take their jobs or do not work at all and live off of welfare. Both those ideas are false.

In my research, I have found that refugees are far from an economic drain. They are quick to integrate into local economies. And nationally they have high labor force participation rates, which includes people who are employed or looking for employment.


There is a reason the Trump and the gang do not like facts and figures……those prove them wrong every time.
