Pres Trump Wipes Out Unconstitutional Obama DAPA for Illegal Aliens | June 16, 2017

DHS John Kelly Wipes Out Obama’s ‘DAPA’ Amnesty

|| Breitbart

“President Donald Trump’s deputies have formally killed off President Barack Obama’s final attempt to create a national amnesty for roughly 4 million illegal aliens, dubbed “DAPA.”

Since 2016, the amnesty has been frozen by the courts, and the end was announced late Thursday by the Department of Homeland Security:

On June 15, Department of Homeland Security Secretary John F. Kelly, after consulting with the Attorney General [Jeff Sessions], signed a memorandum rescinding the November 20, 2014 memorandum that created the program known as Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents (“DAPA”) because there is no credible path forward [in the courts] to litigate the currently enjoined policy.

The DAPA amnesty policy had much support from Democrats and ethnic groups, who may ask judges to keep the amnesty alive.

Obama announced the DAPA amnesty in 2014. The announcement came just after voters decisively rejected his very unpopular push for the “Gang of Eight” amnesty law, and also awarded the GOP 10 extra Senate seats and the Senate majority.

Obama’s DAPA amnesty was not a law, but consisted of Oval Office instructions to deputies that they should not enforce immigration laws against illegal aliens who had children in the United States, sometimes called “anchor babies,” but must instead award work permits to the roughly 4 million illegal-alien parents.

Obama’s DAPA promise of work permits for illegals was quickly blocked by a Texas-based judge, Andre Hanen, amid a lawsuit by a coalition of Governors and Attorneys General. The national GOP played little part in the lawsuit, titled United States v. Texas. The judge’s order later was backed by a Supreme Court decision in June 2016, in which all four of the Democratic-appointed judges supported Obama’s Oval Office amnesty.

Since November, the Texas judge and agency officials have been waiting to see if Trump’s administration would defend Obama’s amnesty in court.

The DAPA amnesty was a more ambitious move than Obama’s 2012 “DACA” amnesty for illegals who claimed to have been brought into the United States as children. That summer 2012 amnesty survived one limited lawsuit and has not been rolled back by Trump. Under Obama’s DACA, roughly 765,000 younger illegals have been given work permits and Social Security Cards. Since January 2017, Trump has allowed the DACA program to renew work permits held by the illegals and to give work permits to more than 17,000 new applicants.

However, the defunct DAPA plan also expanded the DACA amnesty to include additional young illegals and directed officials to award work-permits valid for three years instead of two years.  Those DACA extensions have been formally canceled by the new DHS statement.

A few days after Obama announced his DAPA policy, he showed his radical, open-borders ideology by declaring in a Chicago speech that Americans do not have the right to decide who can immigrate into the United States.”

TruePundit Fingers McCain on Trump Leaks | Feb 22, 2017

White House Fingers John McCain As Media Leak; Believes U.S. Senator Eavesdropped on Trump’s Classified Phone

– TruePundit

“This could be the beginning of the end for embattled Sen. John McCain’s life in politics. According to White House officials, McCain is believed to have somehow gained access to the content of President Donald Trump’s private, classified telephone calls with world leaders. And he isn’t keeping quiet about what was talked about either.

An analysis of McCain’s recent public statements by White House officials, coupled with information from intelligence personnel working with the Trump administration, paints a disturbing picture for McCain — or any elected U.S. politician. Officials believe the senator has inside knowledge of a number of President Trump’s telephone conversations, including at least one conversation with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Even more alarming, officials believe McCain is secretly sharing this sensitive information with colleagues and his cabal of friendly mainstream media journalists in a dangerous clandestine campaign to damage Trump’s presidency even before it has a chance to succeed. Trump has been searching for media rats in the Beltway in recent weeks. White House aides are confident they have now outed one of the major leaks plaguing the early days of the Trump presidency. To everyone’s surprise, it is a senior senator supposedly belonging to the same side of the political aisle as the president.”
