Federal Judge Confirms: Obama Exceeded His Authority with Creation of DACA — Details

During eight years in the White House, Barack Obama accomplished little to nothing. His time in office will not be remembered fondly if historians record the truth in textbooks for future generations.

What Barack gave the country was scandal after scandal and government-run healthcare. Those shouldn’t be things he or his administration are proud of, but the MSM is going to make sure we never forget how great a person the guy really was!

On Friday, a federal judge made a ruling that every smart person knew from the jump. When it comes to DACA, Obama greatly overreached.

From The Daily Wire:

In 2012, then-President Barack Obama issued an executive order that created a program called Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), which ensured that children brought into the U.S. illegally by their parents would not be deported. They were dubbed “Dreamers.”

But federal judge Andrew S. Hanen of the U.S. District Court in Houston — a President George W. Bush appointee — on Friday ruled the executive order was unlawful and that Obama exceeded his authority when issuing it.

Hanen in his ruling said Obama’s executive order violated the Administrative Procedure Act (APA) because it failed to allow the public to comment.


“D.H.S. failed to engage in the statutorily mandated process,” Hanen wrote, “so DACA never gained status as a legally binding policy that could impose duties or obligations.”

The Obama administration had a history of ignoring the APA when issuing rules. It also ignored APA guidelines when issuing new rules for how colleges and universities handled allegations of sexual assault.

Here are Biden’s thoughts, via Fox News:

“Yesterday’s Federal court ruling is deeply disappointing,” Biden said in a statement. “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.”
