Leslie Rutledge joins lawsuit to end DACA program

DACA Lawsuit filed by Louisiana and 6 other states

"We argue that then-President Obama did not have the power to grant lawful presence and work authorization to people who are in this country unlawfully".

"Our lawsuit is about the rule of law, not the wisdom of any particular immigration policy", Paxton said.

Congress failed to act, however, and in the meantime, federal courts have halted the administration's plan to end the program, with one judge ordering the Department of Homeland Security to resume processing renewals and applications.

Nebraska Applessed accuses Attorney General Doug Peterson of targeting valuable Young Nebraskans by joining a suit with six other states aimed at ending a program protecting some young immigrants.

President Trump is anticipated to decide on the destiny of Obama-era immigration Govt Order DACA.

"With a federal attorney general who erroneously and precipitously advised Trump that DACA is unlawful, today's lawsuit is plainly collusive between two attorneys general each egregiously ignorant of the law", he added.

"Activist judges should not stand in the way of the president fulfilling his constitutional duty", he said in a statement Wednesday.

But even Trump has said he has a soft spot for the roughly 800,000 immigrants protected from deportation under the program, and has urged Congress to pass legislation to give them a pathway to citizenship.

Jio is six times more profitable than Bharti Airtel , whose consolidated profit in Q4FY18 was Rs 83 crore. Reliance Retail revenue grew 134 per cent YoY to Rs24,183 crore (Rs10,332 crore).

Experts speculate that the seven-state lawsuit could lead the Supreme Court to take up the case as soon as the fall, said Rodriguez. DACA encourages lawlessness within the federal government and at our borders.

The Trump administration has sought to finish the Deferred Motion for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), however the effort to section out this system has been blocked.

The states challenging DACA are Texas, Alabama, Arkansas, Louisiana, Nebraska, South Carolina and West Virginia.

Ending the program would cost Texas more than 100,000 workers and almost billions of dollars in GDP losses, MALC said in a press release. In the latest in a string of legal defeats for the Trump administration on the issue, a federal judge recently issued a ruling that has the potential to fully open DACA back up to new applicants in 90 days.

Yet another DACA lawsuit was filed Tuesday, but this time the suit aims to end the immigration program.

As of January 2018, there were 682,750 DACA recipients in the country, according to the Migration Policy Institute, a nonpartisan think tank in Washington. After the administration said they would rescind the program, Paxton backed off and allowed the other lawsuit to be dispensed with. The multi-state lawsuit is not seeking the immediate deportation of DACA recipients, although it stipulates that the court could effectuate this outcome.

"[The lawsuit] is not created to address the totality of immigration law - what's right about it and what's wrong about it".
