Biden reacts to federal judge shutting down DACA, vows to fight decision on appeal

President Joe Biden’s push for amnesty for millions of illegal immigrants took a heavy blow on Friday, as a Texas-based federal judge ordered the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program to be closed, going as far as calling the program “illegal.”

According to the Washington Examiner, the president issued a strong statement pushing back on the judge’s decision, vowing to utilize his Justice Department to fight to reopen the program, which was originally put in place by former President Barack Obama through the use of executive action. 

The order was issued by U.S. District Court Judge Andrew Hanen, who was appointed to the federal bench by former President George W. Bush.

“While the court’s order does not now affect current DACA recipients, this decision nonetheless relegates hundreds of thousands of young immigrants to an uncertain future,” Biden said in a Friday statement.

The president added: “The Department of Justice intends to appeal this decision in order to preserve and fortify DACA. And, as the court recognized, the Department of Homeland Security plans to issue a proposed rule concerning DACA in the near future.”

Biden pivoted back to calling on Congress to pave a clear path for DACA-eligible illegal immigrants, as it would likely be the only surefire way to keep such a program running, as it was only a matter of time before a federal judge picked apart a former president’s authority to implement the program.

“I have repeatedly called on Congress to pass the American Dream and Promise Act, and I now renew that call with the greatest urgency,” Biden said.

Judge Hanen also suggested that only Congress has the power to launch such a program, saying in his ruling: “DACA is an unreasonable interpretation of the law because it usurps the power of Congress to dictate a national scheme of immigration laws.”

Only time will tell if Biden is able to spur his allies in Congress to take action, but with Republicans set to win back at least one chamber of Congress next year, time is most certainly not on Biden’s side.

The election needs to be overturned before those in the WH completely destroy our country. Everything they are doing is against the American people. Those who HATE America need to move to another country. There is NO RESPECT for our POLICE OFFICERS AND MILITARY. They put their life on the line everyday, to protect America. The people want fair elections. We want our VOTES to count. Americans need to STAND UP FOR THE CONSTITUTION AND FLAG! GOD BLESS THE USA!

Good Luck (@guest_382327)

Joe not pushing anything. It’s Obama telling joe what to say.. Joe Biden couldn’t care less about the illegal immigrants. Its Obama and his plan to over run America with illegals to keep the democrats in power. Obama hates America. He should be arrested for treason. He is not the president and shouldn’t be allowed in the white House.

For the first time in this nations history we have two people that are not capable of fulfilling the duties of their office. Both need to be removed immediately for dereliction of their duties.

It won’t work, Nick. Next in line is Pelosi!!! The only answer is people at the polls next year voting out all Democrats and states continuing to make their elections solid so it works in 2022.

Dear El Prezidente, These illegal immigrants aren’t being left to an “uncertain future” as you so blithely put it. They can go back to their own country and work to make it better, whatever it takes, just like we did in America in 1776, when England lost their War against this country.

Daniel that is true but I don’t think the “masses of immigrants” think and feel that way. Not when they are “forced” to sell “drugs” to stay alive from the Cartel’s. I have worked w/ppl. from different countries and it was a wonderful experience…however they came to this country “legally” and went on to become “FANTASTIC CITIZENS” …they learned to write and speak our language and our customs. Those who are being “boated” or walking thru the open fence will not be so lucky…they will gain only a fraction of our language; not being able to connect w/those who do not speak Spanish and will not understand our ways. The children will have a tougher time going to a school w/o knowing any kids nor being able to speak to them or to understand them. Some of the kids w/make friends with them; others will torment them because they don’t speak our language; unfortunately this leaves a scar on a child who wants badly to be “American”. Daniel you are trying to compare grapes and apples…the war w/England was fought because England wanted the “colonists” to send goods to England and the “Colonists” were lucky to have enough for their own. Consequently the ABSURD TAX ON THE TEA England sent to the Colonists; the Boston TEA Party led to England retaliating by “locking people up” …etc…etc…
