New York leads DACA lawsuit

Sep 07, 2017 2:27 pm
Matthew Hamilton reports in Capitol Confidential that 15 states, led by New York, filed a lawsuit against the Donald Trump administration Sept. 6 for ending the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. The lawsuit claims that by ending DACA, the Trump administration violated the U.S. Constitution. Because 78 percent of DACA "dreamers" are from Mexico, the lawsuit says, ending the program is a discriminatory act. The lawsuit also seeks to stop federal immigration authorities from using information obtained from DACA applicants in enforcement proceedings. Locally, Rep. John Faso (R-Kinderhook) is being attacked from the right for supporting the DACA program, and attacked from the left for not completely supporting DACA. Read the full story in Capitol Confidential.
