Breaking: Judge Rules Trump’s DACA Phaseout Is Legal

If you’re feeling a little dizzy this morning, it’s probably due to the merry-go-round decisions coming forth from the federal judiciary concerning DACA.

Much like the fight of the Trump travel ban, federal courts appear to be in an internal fight over which legal argument is more legitimate.

The latest comes from federal Judge Roger W. Titus who explained in his decision in favor of the DACA phaseout that the move was completely within the power of the White House and, secondly, that Trump’s tweets are essentially irrelevant in the matter.

This pits multiple conflicting federal decisions against each other in what will almost surely be appealed to circuit court and possibly the Supremes.

The Trump administration’s plan to phaseout the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program is legal, a federal judge ruled Monday.

Judge Roger W. Titus said the DACA rescission memo and the six-month phaseout provided an opportunity for Congress to do their job.

“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.

Some argued that Trump’s inflammatory tweets should be used against the administration’s memo, but Titus disagreed.

“As disheartening or inappropriate as the president’s occasionally disparaging remarks may be, they are not relevant to the larger issues governing the DACA rescission. The DACA Rescission Memo is clear as to its purpose and reasoning, and its decision is rationally supported by the administrative record.”
