DACA is Dead

"As much of the country was gripped Wednesday by horrific images from the mass shooting at a Florida high school, two dozen senior Trump administration officials worked frantically into the night to thwart what they considered a different national security threat.
The looming danger on the minds of the officials was a piece of legislation scheduled for a vote the next day in the Senate. It was designed to spare hundreds of thousands of young immigrants known as “dreamers” from deportation — but to the men and women huddled in a makeshift war room in a Department of Homeland Security facility, the measure would blow open U.S. borders to lawless intruders.
“We’re going to bury it,” one senior administration official told a reporter about 10:30 that evening.
The assault was relentless — a flurry of attacks on the bill from DHS officials and the Justice Department, and a veto threat from the White House — and hours later, the measure died on the Senate floor.
The Trump administration’s extraordinary 11th-hour strategy to sabotage the bill showed how, after weeks of intense bipartisan negotiations on Capitol Hill, it was the White House that emerged as a key obstacle preventing a deal to help the dreamers." WP

Faithless and despicable behavior from Trump's White House.

Trump may think he is playing cute, but there goes the Hispanic vote, not because they are for naturalizing illegal aliens, but simply the way these youngsters are being jerked around. Encouraged to register and now jerk them around on their futures. That is indeed cruel.

DACA got new life. Trump handed down another L by the courts.

Supreme Court declines to enter controversy over ‘dreamers,’ rejects Trump administration’s request to review lower court rulings

Quote:
The litigation now will take its usual course, and the issue probably won’t return to the Supreme Court before the next term. In the meantime, the White House and Congress can continue to seek a political resolution.

Federal district judges in California and New York have issued nationwide injunctions against ending the program, siding with states and organizations challenging the administration’s rescission. The court orders effectively block the Trump administration from ending the program on March 5, as planned.

My post is in reference to the OP.

FWIW, doubt most of Trump's base will ever be aware of your referenced SCOTUS decision and the rest are in a so what frame of mind. They know Trump's in their corner and will keep up the good work and make us great again. Which includes making our borders safe and getting rid of illegals.
