7 States Just Filed A Lawsuit To End The DACA Program
This lawsuit aims to do the exact opposite of several other DACA lawsuits, and it could set up a showdown in front of the Supreme Court.
Yet another DACA lawsuit was filed Tuesday, but this time the suit aims to end the immigration program.
The Texas attorney general announced he's leading a group of seven states in the case. They argue, "The federal executive branch lacks the power to unilaterally grant unlawfully present aliens lawful presence and work authorization."
Let's recap all of DACA's legal woes.
The Trump administration tried to end the program in September. Multiple lawsuits were filed to keep it going. So far, three federal judges have sided against the administration and ruled that DACA in some form must continue.
Now this group of seven states wants the complete opposite, which makes DACA's fate even murkier. If we end up with competing federal court rulings, that could set the stage for the case to land in front of the Supreme Court.
