Legitimately curious to hear Session's reasoning on why ending DACA is the "compassionate thing to do." Not seeing that at all, but maybe I'm missing something. (Or maybe it's just Sessions being Sessions.)

The Mexican American Legal Defense Fund is a good resource, and worthy cause http://www.maldef.org/

They refused to take questions after the announcement.

Also, Trump is a coward for sending Sessions out there.

OK, so here's the whole quote:

Quote:
"The Department of Justice cannot defend this overreach," Sessions said. "There is nothing compassionate about the failure to enforce immigration laws. Enforcing the law saves lives, protects communities and taxpayers, and prevents human suffering. Failure to enforce the laws in the past has put our nation at risk of crime, violence and even terrorism. The compassionate thing is to end the lawlessness, (and) enforce our laws."


I'll just leave that there. Why even bother commenting on it? Nothing new to say...

There's no chance Trump could even tell you what DACA stands for.

There is this, though:

Quote:
The administration insisted its approach was designed to offer some security to DACA recipients, emphasizing that if it had allowed the courts to decide the issue, then would have been risking an immediate and abrupt end to DACA at the hands of a judge.

http://www.cnn.com/2017/09/05/politics/ ... index.html

(That whole article provides a nice summary of the situation.)

It's also worth noting that many Republicans support DACA and that the goal here might actually be to provide a longterm solution to this problem that will hold up to legal challenge. That seems to be the whole point of the 6 month delay. The legal side of the issue is way beyond me, so I'll have to leave that to others.

They're referring to a potential Texas lawsuit. I'm not buying this. He could have worked with congress to pass a new law without making this announcement while simultaneously defending it in court. I suspect he's holding these people hostage to get his stupid wall.

10 states signed off on a threat to sue if DACA didn't end.

https://www.texastribune.org/2017/06/29/texas-leads-10-states-urging-trump-end-daca/

I wonder how many of them are GOP-controlled statehouses?

Can't lay this all on Trump - GOP has botched up the immigration issue. I read that Ryan doesn't want to end DACA. Let's just see if they can take time from their trickle down economics agenda to address this.

I'm shocked that Missouri wasn't on that list. I just expect Missouri to be attached to anything mean spirited these days.
