aside US Courts Save DACA Program Again From Being Rescinded By President Trump In April 2018

A US federal judge who was appointed by the republican President George W. Bush has not only denied the president’s petition to wind down the DACA/ Deferred Childhood Arrivals program but the judge has ordered the president’s administration to continue to accept applications for it. The DACA program was instituted by the democratic President Barack Obama to prevent the deportation of young adults who came to the USA as children with undocumented parents but, they no longer know their country of origin.

President Trump politicized Easter and the White House Easter Egg Roll, by talking and tweeting about DACA, the economy and military "levels" and funding.

Here is the rest of the story…

On April 24, 2018, Avery Anapol of the Hill penned the following report, “Third federal judge rejects Trump reasoning for ending DACA”

“A federal judge on Tuesday (4/24/18) ordered the Trump administration to continue accepting DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) applications, dealing a major blow to the administration as it attempts to wind down the program.”

“U.S. District Judge John Bates, a George W. Bush appointee, became the third federal judge to reject President Trump’s explanation for ending the program, ruling that the decision was “virtually unexplained.”

“Trump rescinded DACA in September, giving Congress six months to pass legislation in its place.”

“Bates ordered the administration to continue DACA, which gives protections to un-“documented immigrants brought to the U.S. as children.”

“Bates also ordered the administration to accept new applications, a first in the ongoing legal battles over the decision.”

“Bates stayed the ruling for 90 days to give the administration time to come up with a better explanation for ending the program.”

“Two other judges have issued similar rulings, but have only ruled that the program should be allowed to continue while litigation plays out.”


  1. More evidence as to how far-seeing were the Founding Fathers and those who worked to ensure the separation of powers within the USA constituion

    • Dear Roger,

      The founding Fathers put a lot of thought into the concept of separation of powers in creating the US Constitution but they couldn’t have envisioned the legislative branch capitulating to someone like President Trump instead of being a check on his abuse of power and worse.

      • It could be argued there was similar collapse of resistance during the McCarthy era, and yet this faded as quickly as it began.
        How this will look in two, three, four years time is hard to predict, for there are so many unpredictable factors ahead, not just nationally but internationally.
        Trump is not so much a person but a manifestation of what happens when bi-partisanship evaporates.
        Just how he will be judged is a matter of conjecture.

  2. Big problem for Trump and the Repubs that support this DACA repeal… they have no good reason to do so other than prejudice and ignorance. It’s about time the Judiciary did the right thing and followed law instead of partisan politics.
