The administration has already taken the first step to accommodate President-elect Trump’s positions, agreeing Friday to take a timeout on President Obama’s push to kick-start his 2014 deportation amnesty.
In documents filed with a federal judge in Texas the Justice Department said that in light of the new management that will take over next year, the case should be suspended.
“Accordingly, the parties respectfully submit that further proceedings on the merits of this case, including the submission of a schedule for resolving the merits, should be stayed until February 20, 2017,” the Justice Department and lawyers for Texas said in a joint request of Judge Andrew S. Hanen.
This most likely sounds the death knells of Obama’s illegal executive amnesty programs, the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and Deferred Action for Parents of Americans (DAPA).
In June, 2016, Trump called Obama’s executive amnesty “one of the most unconstitutional actions ever undertaken by a President,” and said amnesty hurts “poor African-American and Hispanic workers by giving away their jobs and federal resources to illegal immigrant labor – while making us all less safe.”
Another disastrous Obama policy bites the dust, thanks to President-elect Trump – and he hasn’t even been sworn into office yet!
