High Court Needs to Settle Obama's Invalid DACA Order

Richard Gunion/Dreamstime
Last week, a second federal circuit court remarkably voided President Trump’s executive order aimed at reversing a blatantly unconstitutional previous executive order by former President Obama granting amnesty to younger illegal immigrants under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA).
How do we know it's illegal?
Well, let’s start with the fact that Obama himself admitted on 20 separate occasions that he had no power to grant such amnesty.
His exact words were, "I am not king. I can't do these things just by myself."
In later remarks, he confirmed, "With respect to the notion that I can just suspend deportations through executive order, that's just not the case."
Months later he went even further, stating that he couldn’t "just bypass Congress and change the (immigration) law myself. . . . That's not how a democracy works."
In 2015, the US Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals blocked Obama from unilaterally implementing his Deferred Action for Parents of Americans (DAPA) Act, which would have allowed Obama’s reinterpretation of the Immigration and Naturalization Act (INA) to stand.
In striking down the executive order, the court noted that allowing it to stand would "grant lawful presence and work authorization to any illegal alien in the United States — an untenable position in light of the INA’s intricate system of immigration classifications and employment eligibility."
