Jeff Sessions Announces DACA Demise
by Ian Mason
5 Sep 2017

Attorney General Jeff Sessions made the rumored end of Obama’s DACA amnesty program official Tuesday.

Addressing reporters at the Department of Justice, Sessions, who made resistance to amnesty a focal point of his decades long political career, took the lead in announcing the fulfillment of one of President Donald Trump’s major campaign promises. A DOJ spokeswoman, however, made clear it was the president who had made the final decision.

“I’m here today to announce that the program known as DACA that was effectuated by the Obama administration is being rescinded,” Sessions said. Later calling for an “orderly and lawful wind-down.”

Sessions quoted George Washington University Law School Professor Jonathan Turley’s testimony before the House Judiciary Committee in support of his legal assessment of the DACA program:

In ordering this blanket exception, President Obama was nullifying part of a law that he simply disagreed with … If a president can claim sweeping discretion to suspend key federal laws, the entire legislative process becomes little more than a pretense … The circumvention of the legislative process not only undermines the authority of this branch but destabilizes the tripartite system as a whole.

Deferred Action on Childhood Arrivals (DACA) will be rescinded by a memorandum from Acting Secretary of Homeland Security Elaine Duke, effective immediately. No current beneficiaries will lose their protected status for six months, but no new applications for DACA status will be taken after Tuesday. Those already under DACA who have already applied for their two-year renewals will have those requests processed. Those whose status expires in the sixth month grace period will still be able to apply for their two-year renewals until October 5, 2017. A senior DHS official made clear that those illegals whose DACA protection is pending and who leave the country at any time will lose any possibility of receiving that protection.

DACA offered effective immunity from the law for illegal aliens who arrived under age 17 before 2007. Over 800,000 illegals are currently being shielded from deportation and given work authorization under the program. The average age of these illegals is 25. As Sessions put it:

This unilateral executive amnesty, among other things, contributed to a surge of minors at the southern border that yielded terrible humanitarian consequences and it denied jobs to hundreds of thousands of Americans by allowing those same illegal aliens to take those jobs.

According to the Department of Homeland Security, Sessions had sent a letter to that agency on Monday stating that DACA:

[W]as effectuated by the previous administration through executive action, without proper statutory authority and with no established end-date, after Congress’ repeated rejection of proposed legislation that would have accomplished a similar result. Such an open-ended circumvention of immigration laws was an unconstitutional exercise of authority by the Executive Branch.

In that letter, Sessions also offered a dire assessment of DACA’s ability to stand up to the constitutional challenge threatened by ten state attorneys general. A lawsuit by those states had already overturned the companion Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents (DAPA) program. DACA, Sessions wrote, “has the same legal and constitutional defects that the courts recognized as to DAPA, it is likely that potentially imminent litigation would yield similar results with respect to DACA.”

In his remarks, Sessions gave his assessment of the Trump administration’s progress on illegal migration so far, saying:

This administration has made great progress in the last few months toward establishing a lawful and constitutional immigration system. This makes us safer and more secure. It will further economically the lives of millions who are struggling and it will enable our country to more effectively teach new immigrants about our system of government and to assimilate them to the cultural understandings that support it. The progress in reducing illegal immigration at our border seen in recent months is almost entirely due to the leadership of President Trump and his inspired immigration officers. But the problem is not yet solved. And without more action, we could see illegality rise again rather than be eliminated.

DHS officials, meanwhile, noted that Congress will now have six months to “deliver on appropriate legislative solutions” regarding so-called “dreamers.”

14 Things the MSM Won’t Tell You About DACA
by John Nolte5 Sep 2017


Hopefully the list below will offer some clarity and context. The first point, I think, is the most important.

This Is Only the Fault of the Parents
DACA Recipients Are Illegal Aliens
DACA Is a Massive Amnesty Program
DACA Recipients Are Not the Children
DACA is eligible only to those aged 15-32.
DACA Recipients Take Jobs Americans WILL Do
Some DACA Recipients are Criminals
The DACA screening process is in reality a joke, a rubber stamp.
DACA Is Not a Law, It Is the Violation of Law
Most DACA Recipients are Not Overachievers
DACA Is Wildly Unfair to Americans, Most Especially Young Americans Just Starting Out
DACA Was Already Litigated and Debated in 2016

The American people have already had the DACA debate. Hillary Clinton promised to expand DACA. Trump promised to end DACA.

Trump won.
DACA Encourages More Illegal Immigrants

Moreover, making that trek is dangerous, especially from South America. People die of exposure and are exploited, sometimes sexually, by the Coyotes they hire to lead them here.

Illegal immigration is a lose-lose for everyone but Democrats who desire the votes and business owners who do not want to pay a legal resident a fair market wage.
In Most States, DACA Recipients are Eligible for Welfare Benefits
DACA Ignores Some Criminal Behavior
On the true merits, the DACA debate is a loser for the Left and their media — which is why the 14 facts above must remain largely unspoken.

Illegals and their Leftist supporters plan demonstration at Trump Tower tomorrow. Organizers are claiming it will be a peaceful demonstration. At least that is what they are claiming.

DACA Recipients And Allies Respond To Potential DACA Repeal With Mass Civil Disobedience at Trump Tower

In response to President Trump’s forthcoming announcement on the future of DACA, dozens prepare to risk arrest at Trump Tower, joined by thousands of supporters. For the DACA recipients participating in this action, the threat of facing ICE retaliation is real- just as it was seven years ago when the first undocumented youth began risking arrest. Allies participating in the action are refusing to leave the jail until all four DACA recipients are released.

Who: Undocumented youth, immigrant workers and allies
What: Mass sit in at Trump Tower, Rally & Student Walkouts
When: Action begins at 11:00am, spokespeople will be available for interviews starting at 10am at 59th street and 5th avenue
Where: Crowd will gather at 59th and 5th avenue, New York, NY

“We are angry for all the young undocumented immigrants that haven’t turned 16 yet and are waiting to apply for DACA. We are angry, for all the DACA parents that could lose the job that supported their family. We are angry, for all the plans that DACA recipients had that now seem impossible. But we are also strong; and no politician- not Trump, not Paxton- can take that away from us. Our strength and resilience have never depended on a work permit,” said Thais Marques, a spokesperson for Movimiento Cosecha.

The potential repeal of DACA and TPS means that over a million immigrant workers stand to lose their jobs. It means massive layoffs across the country, at an unprecedented scale. Over the course of the next two years, an average of 1,400 DACA workers will lose their jobs every single day. DACA and TPS recipients with families that depend on them to get by will no longer be able to support their parents and children. “Today’s announcement means we must brace ourselves for what is soon to become an economic crisis in our community,” said Marques.

Starting tomorrow, there will be many who will walk into work, knowing they may soon lose their jobs. In the coming weeks and months, we will need to be there for eachother. We will need to help protect one another in the workplace. We will need to fight to stop DACAmented workers from getting fired, and raise money to support our families. We cannot be silent through this crisis, nor will any of us be able to get through it alone.

**Pre-action interviews available upon request**
