Several states consider legal action against Trump's decision to rescind DACA

Written by  CBS News

At least three states are considering legal action against the Trump administration in the wake of the decision announced Tuesday to rescind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program that has deferred deportations for more than 780,000 people.

California Attorney General Xavier Becerra, a former Democratic member of Congress, said that he is prepared to sue the administration over the decision to halt the program. About a quarter of DACA recipients, 220,000 people, live in California, he said.

"Ending the program is devastating not just for recipients, but for our economy. California businesses would lose more than a billion dollars in turnover costs," he said in a statement. "California is taking action because one in four DACA grantees live in our great state. I will do everything I can to fight for them."

Washington state's Democratic governor, Jay Inslee, also said his state is mulling over a legal challenge.

"Washington state will consider every option possible to challenge the repeal of DACA, including legal action, coordination with other states and any executive action that could help protect Dreamers," said Inslee, who noted that about 17,000 "Dreamers" live in his state.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, a Democrat, tweeted Monday, "We will not stand by as 42,000 New Yorkers are deported.

The states do not have legal standing to bring suite. Any judge that takes the case is violating the constitution and should be fired.

Do you ever wonder which laws those Liberal Democrats want enforced? They make the laws in Washington but refuse to enforce them, we have many laws concerning illegal immigration which are ignored!

It's the usual leftist mafioso trifecta.

First of it was Obama illegal actions through his executive order granting dreamers citizen status. So all President Trump did was to resend the illegal order and tell congress to pass a real law concerning the matter. Let them go dream in the home land!

Many of these hypocrites joined in with the Obama Administration when Arizona passed a law respecting illegals. At that time, they said that immigration policy was the exclusive purview of the Federal Government. I guess it all depends on whose ox is getting gored.

Is this stupid? Democrats suing for violators not upholding an illegal document written by an illegal president.

LMAO.... Executive order making law, acting like a king/dictator. No legal grounds to stand on. These governors are like the dreamers. They believe they are above the law. I think this is a perfect move as it gives the government time to eliminate the violators of the law by sending them home. Be a good citizen to earn the right to be here. That is the law till your granted citizenship.

Come on BB... at least you could get your headline accurate... Trump is not ending DACA contrary to the MSM predictable anti-Trump spew.

As is Constitutional, he has remanded the issue to Congress... the responsible maker of Laws, to decide the fate of DACA and has extended DACA for six months for them to do so..

This is the proper way, as opposed to the Obama way, to handle the issue.

The law is unconstitutional, an illegal law. Now let us get a grip on this bullshit? They claim we will lose a billion dollars if DACA illegal aliens are deported, thus if you pay less in tax dollars for welfare, healthcare, food debt cards, utilities, college tuition, and transportation, if these folks are not her you lose billions of dollars. Does this sound like an Obama supporter logic after secretly pissing away 12 trillion dollars in eight years they swear he balanced the budget forgetting he doubled the deficit and did not end the recession, but use stimulus spending of 85 billion a month to create a false prosperity. The government already taxes the crap out of us, why should this logic shock us? Look those already on DACA will have their faith decided by Congress, not Trump. However, this law which encouraged foreigners to abandon their children and send them on a journey risking death to enter the U.S. Illegally for an illegal Obama catch and release welcoming has ended. Obama does not give two shits about this nation he tried to destroy it. Bankruptcy to force the New World Order us part of the plan.

Seriously? A lawsuit against an illegal order is ludicrous and only the liberals would come up with something so stupid, a waste of time and yet another waste of the taxpayer's dollars

These progressive communist blue state governors should be held accountable for trying to defend an unconstitutional program started by an illigitamate president. Obama has continued to be a thorn in the side of America. Seems he still controls the left through his minions of anarchists who actively are still causing trouble throughout the United States. The DOJ must in all cases fight each and everyone of the leftest states who think their people all support their outrageous attempts to keep a program that should never have been started by an illegal executive order by that maniac Obama. Congress should do their job and stop any and all actions to try and keep this rediculous law in effect. Go Trump.

How do you sue an illegal made up law...Obama wasn't a King...??? If I were president I wouldn't even a given 6 months reprieve....

The DACA folks aren't the real problem. The real problem is both the narcotraficantes and coyotes on the border and the unknown number of illegados we have in the USA. (I don't see many DACA folks causing trouble.) If you build the wall and go with Open/Controlled Immigration (like Ellis Island), the Dreamers become a non-issue.

Let the Liberals have the illegals. Make them support them, and pay for any damage done when they break the law. Put a special tax on all Liberals, and Democrats, and listen to them howl. You see they want us to pay for everything....including their stupidity!

Seems to me liberals are fine with laws or wit out laws as long as they get their desired outcome.
Liberals lost the election and hate Trump and have turned their head away from civility and exposed every Marxist bone in their body.
Now we have again all liberal run states ready to blame Trump for forcing congress to do their job. Obama instead of trying to change established immigration laws did what every good liberal does ignore the law and act as if it was never there. The problem today is the liberals in government who believe that laws and the constitution are only good if it works in benefit for them.

Why didn't these primates lend a hand to these illegals and help them on the path to legalization years ago rather than wait until this day, something they all knew was coming - oh, how typical of government slugs. These illegals technically cannot get social security numbers and therefore cannot get a drivers license, cannot vote, cannot open a bank account or much of anything else in the US without our de facto universal ID so how do they expect the experience the American 'dream?'

The states have no legal standing on this issue just as they have none in any other immigration issue. Controlling the National Borders and Immigration of people into this country is a power vested in the FEDERAL Gov't only. Communist Democrats have allowed communist democrats in state offices have a big say in it to weaken our nation.

Trump is not sending any of these young people back to Mexico or where ever he is putting DACA on hold and giving it to Congress to figure out I wish the left would stop lying

Isn't it time for another "rally," so the Supreme Leader can brag about how he's Making America Lily-White Again?

Joseph Davis 80,000 rapes robberies and murders have been done by illegals in the last ten years. How do we know who are the Dreamers and who are the thugs? We don't as immigration can't even tell where millions on green cards have disappeared to.

80,000 rapes, robberies and murders? And we know this HOW? Beck & Limbaugh? Some OTHER bull-(expletive deleted) right wing radio host? One would suppose that you see "Dreamers" working jobs, while you see thugs trying to rape, rob or murder you.

Well, let's "dog-whistle" up some support for President Bull-In-The-China-Shop's latest attempt to destroy the lives of how many people? The Trump-Cult faithful seem to be firmly on board with this latest move by President Bull, to undo anything and everything accomplished by Obama. Never mind the manifestation of obsessive-compulsive disorder in the Oval Office. "It's them damn' illegals, what's makin' life tough for us Real 'Mericans."

You can probably settle down. The President merely repealed an executive order that was entirely unconstitutional. Article I, Sect 8 gives Congress the power to establish naturalization laws. Article II, which establishes the powers of the Executive, grants the President no such powers. If you read a transcript of Sessions' speech, you will what CNN refuses to report: DACA is rescinded, but deportment of the Dreamers is deferred so that Congress can create legal structure to deal with the issue.

DACA was rescinded, because DACA is illegal. Once you have a President issuing executive orders, you no longer have a President; you have a king. You can throw all the temper tantrums you want, but if you want to hold the current President accountable to the Constiturion, you have to start holding liberal politicians accountable to it as well.

Absolutely true, thank you for stating what people should have known. The President can't make laws only Congress can and the unconstitutional ruling was sent to Congress for that reason. So instead of whining and carrying on, if you want this to be law contact your Congressman and Senators and if you don't want it, contact your Congressman or Senators. Simple!!!!

These far-rightists never cease to amaze me. They pi** and moan about an overreaching Federal government, and when the States seek to oppose President Bull-In-The-China-Shop, the far-rightists throw a hissy fit. And in the meantime, the Russian Connection investigation draws ever nearer to President Bull and company. One seriously doubts that anyone in this DACA program conspired with the Russians to remain in the US, while President Bull's association with the Russian Bear grows with each new revelation. And all the while, Congressional Democrats AND Republicans are eagerly awaiting the FBI's findings on the Russian Connection, so they'll have grounds to kick President Bull out of the Washington China Shop.

I presume you watch the news on a daily basis? Although it's been rather quiet for a few days, in re the Russian Connection, it could be the calm before the indictments come down.

These insane democrats never cease to amaze me. They are actually considering legal action to defend an illegal and unconstitutional executive overreach designed to violate United States law and sovereignty? We don't need any more immigration laws. What we need to be doing is enforcing the laws that were passed back in 1986 where amnesty was given with the promise of border enforcement. The insane democrats and their RINO compatriots did everything they could to prevent any kind of law enforcement at our southern border and allowed an additional 20-30 million more illegal immigrants over the last 31 years. No new laws. Enforce the one's we have already. Build the wall.

Gov Cuomo says he will not stand by as 42,000 New Yorkers are deported. 42,000 New Yorkers would not be subject to deportation anyway- only the 42,000 ILLEGAL ALIENS who are FOREIGNERS, not New Yorkers. If I'm foreign, I can't claim I'm American. It's pretty basic, Guv!!

Your parents bring you to the US as a child: what law have you broken?. Only a fascist would call a person who has broken no law "illegal." The term illegal alien, in fact, as invented by the Nazis. Those brought here by their parents have broken now laws and have grown up as Americans, with many speaking no other language than English. They attend school, serve in the military, and work. What kind of assholes would demand that we deport a million young people who live as Americans and have broken no law? 2/3 of Americans, according to a 2015 Gallup Poll, support a path to citizenship for all law abiding residents who have been denied legal status. 14% want them deported? How many want those who came here by no choice of their own as children deported? Far less than 14%. To expell these people, who are Americans in all but name, is a great crime, akin to the early Nazi program to expel Jews, another minority who had committed no crimes but for whom laws were designed to make their very existence illegal.

When the law itself is criminal, it is the duty of good people to oppose it. The rule of law is NOT the rule of assholes!

Liberals typically employ ad hominen attacks & juvenile name-calling. Everyone who disagrees w/ a liberal's ill-formed opinions is a Nazi. Standard leftwing tactic- call someone racist or Nazi. There's no excuse for ignorance of the law. Go to US Citizenship & Immigration Services website for information- do your homework. DACA ARE ILLEGALS- they are in this country ILLEGALLY. I've found those most incensed about DACA are LEGAL immigrants who stood in line & paid their dues- to become LEGAL US citizens. Do you really think we have Border Patrol & iCE for yuks? They are there to enforce immigration laws. Obama's DACA amnesty was illegal. I met a Greek Cypriot on a H1B visa with 2 Masters degrees, asking why we let people jump our "fence" when he would give up his right arm to be an American. Why indeed? We must enforce our laws-- otherwise, we descend into anarchy and chaos- not to mention the problem with Islamic terrorism (now descending upon Europe b/c of foolish liberal immigration policies). Bottom line- no one should profit from law-breaking and the 1st step towards being a good American citizen is to be a law-abiding one.

Name-calling is what people do when they can't use logic, reasoning or facts. By the definition of citizen in Mexican law, these illegals are still Mexican citizens and having entered the US illegally, are NOT Americans, neither are their children. No, they don't serve in the military, and they are not law abiding when they use fake IDs. We've had an epidemic of identity theft in this country.

To compare illegals to the Jews of Europe is to engage in the fallacy of the false parallel. European Jews were citizens of their respective countries. These aliens are not citizens of the US, they came here in violation of US law, have stolen benefits from US citizens and are therefore outlaws.They are not citizens stripped of citizenship, since they were not citizens to begin with. That's the LAW- in America, if you don't like the laws, you have the great opportunity of trying to change them-- but you do NOT get to break them simply because you don't like them.

The far-rightists, like their Nazi forerunners, have little regard for the law, other than to prattle about it being "unconstitutional" if they oppose some facet of it, and babble about its legitimacy if they support it.

This is pure right-wing bull-(expletive deleted). Show me a line-up of white boys, waiting for all the jobs that are supposed to magically appear, if President Bull-In-The-China-Shop sends a bunch of people back south of the border.

I'm reminded of the question "What would Jesus do...?" in a like situation? He'd probably drive the money-changers out of the temple, starting with Donald Trump.

I don't see liberals taking in US citizens out of homeless shelters- or big mouths in Hollywood offering up their mansions to them or to illegal immigrants. Jamiel Shaw Sr., whose son was shot to death by a sanctuary-protected gang member living in LA illegally, had this rebuke: “You want to talk about families being separated? Try spending your holidays talking to a grave!” Remember, Jesus said "render unto Caesar." Give that some proper thought. We're $20 TRILLION in debt- libs want to dump Dreamer costs on taxpayers- never absorb them themselves- and guess what, there's no such thing as collective salvation. There is a staggering # of kids living at home w/ parents- UNEMPLOYED. I don't see ANY concern for their plight.
