Republican officials in 10 states push Trump to end DACA immigration program

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton has joined an investigation into suspicious ballots in Dallas County.

Though the states were successful in challenging the policy seeking to shield older undocumented immigrants, they have not yet challenged DACA in court.

In a letter, the coalition urged the Secretary of Homeland Security to rescind a recent memorandum that keeps the program in effect.

Trump campaigned on a promise to stop the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA, but he hasn't done so yet ― although his administration has officially rescinded a similar program meant to protect undocumented parents of US citizens and lawful permanent residents. DAPA would have protected undocumented parents of US citizens from deportation, but got blocked in court after Texas sued the administration for overstepping executive authority. If the Trump administration ends DACA, the states will dismiss the case.

An attorney and immigration advocate implored the Trump Administration not to rescind an Obama Administration executive order created to help undocumented immigrants work toward a path to US citizenship.

DACA allows certain undocumented immigrants who entered the United States as minors the right to remain in the United States for two years if they met certain conditions such as attending school.

Stay in touch: Do you want to get this roundup via email? Although Trump decried the program during the campaign and promised to "immediately terminate" the program, his administration has yet to do so. "Butch" Otter, declared that DACA is unlawful because it grants work permits and legal status to people without Congressional authorization. The petitioners said they would drop the suit if the Administration acquiesces by September 5.

In their letter, they asked the administration to phase out DACA by ending the distribution of new permits and the renewal of current permits. It said the demand would not require the government to nullify any such permits that are now in force, nor would it require the government to deport any specific alien.

State legal officials in Texas had repeatedly filed lawsuits against the Obama Administration, on a wide array of policies. Denniston has written for us as a contributor since June 2011 and has covered the Supreme Court since 1958.
