Trump admin says no more legal status for illegal immigrant parents; brings Obama policy to screeching halt

The Trump administration fulfilled another campaign promise Thursday night when it ended an Obama-era program that gave legal status to undocumented parents of American children.

NBC News reported:

A Department of Homeland Security press release issued Thursday said:

“On June 15, Department of Homeland Security Secretary John F. Kelly, after consulting with the Attorney General, signed a memorandum rescinding the November 20, 2014 memorandum that created the program known as Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents (‘DAPA’) because there is no credible path forward to litigate the currently enjoined policy.”

The press announcement also observed that before DACA had even been implemented, it had received significant pushback from a majority of the states with approval of the federal court system.

“Prior to implementation of DAPA, twenty-six states challenged the policies established in the DAPA memorandum in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas. The district court enjoined implementation of the DAPA memorandum, the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit affirmed the district court’s decision, and the Supreme Court allowed the district court’s injunction to remain in place,” the statement said.

“The rescinded policy also provided expanded work authorization for recipients under the DACA program for three years versus two years.  This policy was also enjoined nationwide and has now been rescinded.”

The news met with almost universal approval on social media.
