The decision on whether to hold up President Trump’s decision to end the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program that allows illegal immigrants that crossed the border as children to get work permits and renewable 2-year at a time deportation reprieves is headed to the Supreme Court.
And, President Trump is giving it his all to make sure the Supreme Court rules in his favor.
If they do, then Trump is promising to make a “bipartisan deal” to the “benefit of all” with regards to immigration.
Check out what the president had to say on this matter on his Twitter page:
President Trump additionally pointed out that even Obama did not totally believe that what he was doing was legal when he put DACA in place.
What do you think?
Should the Supreme Court uphold President Trump's decision to toss out DACA?
The New York Posthas more details to help you decide:
President Trump on Friday suggested that a bipartisan deal on immigration “will be made to the benefit of all” in Congress – if the Supreme Court rules in his favor over ending the Obama-era program that protects young undocumented immigrants brought to the US as children from deportation.
In a series of tweets, the president weighed in on DACA, the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, which he resolved to end in 2017, five years after it was created by Obama — prompting mass protests and a failed congressional effort to save it.
In June, the Supreme Court justices said they would hear arguments during their next term, which begins next month, and issue a decision likely by June 2020 as Trump seeks re-election.
Three federal district courts and two appeals courts have blocked Trump from outright nixing the program and only one district court has ruled in his favor.
“DACA will be going before the Supreme Court,” Trump wrote Friday, adding, “Rest assured that if the SC does what all say it must, based on the law, a bipartisan deal will be made to the benefit of all!”
DACA shields about 700,000 immigrants called “Dreamers” who were brought to the US illegally as children or came with families that overstayed visas.
On Friday, Trump also cited the director of litigation for the conservative Immigration Reform Law Institute in arguing that President Obama “never had the legal right to sign DACA.”
While President Donald Trump made it clear in 2017 that the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program would be terminated, currently, the initiative is still up and going. In a couple of months, the Supreme Court will hear cases on Trump's argument against the DACA program.
"President Obama never had the legal right to sign DACA, and he indicated so at the time of signing. But In any event, how can he have the right to sign and I don't have the right to "unsigned." Totally illegal document which would actually give the President new powers," Trump tweeted Friday morning.
He believes that DACA is an unlawful program, and that the Supreme Court wouldn't reinstate an "unlawful program."
He also stated that if his Supreme Court ruling goes well, "a bipartisan deal will be made to the benefit of all," according to a Twitter post from the president the same day.
