Judge Rules in Favor of Trump on DACA

Washington Times

A federal judge ruled Monday that President Trump’s phaseout of the Obama-era DACA program is legal, adding heft to the administration’s defense but doing little to solve the ongoing court quagmire.

The ruling does not overturn two other federal courts, who had previously blocked the phaseout, which was supposed to take effect Monday. But it does offer a needed boost as the Justice Department appeals those other two rulings.

Judge Roger W. Titus, a Bush appointee to the bench in Maryland, said the judges in California and New York who blocked the phaseout attempted to substitute their own judgments for that of the Homeland Security Department, crossing constitutional lines in order to strike at Mr. Trump’s policies.

Judge Titus went even further, praising the Trump administration for the way it handled the situation with a six-month phaseout.

“This decision took control of a pell-mell situation and provided Congress — the branch of government charged with determining immigration policy — an opportunity to remedy it. Given the reasonable belief that DACA was unlawful, the decision to wind down DACA in an orderly manner was rational,” the judge wrote.

Meanwhile, the rabble do what they do best – make a lot of noise and a mess.

    At least brings back the point that Congress is supposed to legislate, not the judiciary. Congress has become ineffective at addressing hard things, so the president or courts began to make laws. This is wrong. Trump’s 6 month deadline on DACA was to end a Presidential fiat by giving the responsibility of legislating back to Congress. They again failed. Now they have their own established deadline of March 23. Do we really believe they will pass a law by then, or just let the judges make law?
