SCOTUS Embraces Illegal DACA

Timothy Birdnow

The supposedly conservative Supreme Court gave America the finger over DACA. Conservative HQ chronicles the event:
"The U.S. Supreme Court has refused to let Arizona deny driver’s licenses to illegal aliens who are protected from deportation under Obama’s unconstitutional Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

The controversy dates back to 2012, when Obama announced the program and Arizona’s then-governor, Jan Brewer, quickly moved to block beneficiaries from qualifying for a driver’s license.

Supreme CourtBrewer contended Arizona was enforcing its longstanding policy of issuing licenses only to people who can prove they are in the country legally.

Non-citizens must prove they are authorized to be in the United States to obtain an Arizona driver’s license, such as with a valid federal work permit. The state decided not to accept permits obtained by DACA recipients.

According to reporting by Bloomberg’s Greg Stohr, a group of DACA recipients challenged the policy. A federal appeals court ruled in their favor, saying U.S. immigration law bars states from making distinctions among different classes of non-citizens.

National Review’s Mairead McArdle reports the court refused to hear Arizona’s appeal of a case brought by the American Civil Liberties Union, representing DACA recipients who were denied licenses. The San Francisco-based 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals last year struck down the Arizona policy, ruling that the state cannot develop its own definition of immigrants who are authorized to be in the United States and that only the federal government had that power."

End excerpt.

I left the following comment at the website:

I think the most galling aspect of this is the double standard that is being forced on us as law. Obama had the authority to do this, we are told, but Trump does not enjoy the authority to undo it.

There appear to be two sets of rules, one that gives the left the power to do as it pleases and one that stifles the rest of us. The supposedly conservative Supreme Court should understand this and yet it completely fails.

Why is the will of Congress, the will of the People, and the Will of the current President less important than the Will of one lawless man who himself admitted he did not have the authority to do what he did? If Obama was king, then Trump should be likewise. If not, then Obama's rule was an act of tyranny and should be overturned. Either way, we are getting nothing but double talk from these pompous windbags in black robes.
