Jeff Sessions Wants the Supreme Court to Reverse Temporary Injunction Protecting DACA

Spread the love

After a federal judge ordered for the reinstatement of DACA, the Justice Department claims that it will take the “rare step” of asking the Supreme Court to reverse the decision and allow for the end of DACA.

The judge’s injunction has been appealed to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit, but the Justice Department will petition the Supreme Court to hear the case as well.  If the Supreme Court decided to hear the case, this would completely bypass the appellate court.

According to Attorney General Jeff Sessions, “It defies both law and common sense [that a] single district court in San Francisco” was able to stop Trump from ending DACA.

We, here at the Hacking Immigration Law, find ourselves wondering at Jeff Sessions’s common sense.  Getting rid of DACA punishes the Dreamers in this country for something they had no control over.

Sessions says, “We are now taking the rare step of requesting direct review on the merits of this injunction by the Supreme Court so that this issue may be resolved quickly and fairly for all the parties involved.”

Meanwhile, California Attorney General Xavier Becerra, who took part in filing a lawsuit that led to the temporary injunction, said, “The unlawful action by the Trump Administration to terminate DACA impacts the lives and livelihood of hundreds of thousands [of] Dreamers, their colleagues, our universities, our businesses and our economy.”

We couldn’t agree more about the impact of Dreamers on our nation.

Homeland Security officials already have agreed to comply with the judge’s decision.

DACA discourse is currently at the focal point of the federal legislature, threatening a government shutdown.  Trump claimed President Obama did not have the authority to create the DACA program, so Congress must act if they would like to defend the dreamers.
