DACA Amnesty Faces Sept. 5 Legal Deadline

Pat Sullivan/Associated Press
Supporters of the DACA amnesty are hoping that President Donald Trump will tell his Department of Justice to save the amnesty from a federal court if a promised lawsuit from 10 state Attorneys General is filed September 5.
But the administration has provided not evidence that it will save the amnesty, according to Politico:
DACA, which President Barack Obama began five years ago this month, is confronting its gravest danger yet. And one of the biggest questions — will Trump defend the program in court — is still anybody’s guess …
Justice Department spokesman Devin O’Malley declined to comment on whether DOJ — under Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who fiercely opposed the program as a senator — would defend DACA in court should the states sue.
Gillian Christensen, the acting spokeswoman for U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, also declined to comment on potential pending litigation. But she emphasized that the administration “would quickly and professionally make changes to the program in the least impactful manner possible for recipients” should changes to DACA come from Capitol Hill or the courts.
Failing a Trump intervention, the amnesty advocates are also hoping to save the DACA amnesty — which now covers roughly 800,000 illegals — with their own lawyers, even though the federal court has already killed the very similar ‘DAPA’ quasi-amnesty for the 4 million illegal-immigrant parents of American-born children.
