A federal judge ruled that the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program created by executive order by then-President Obama in 2012 is illegal. 

A federal judge in Texas again ruled unlawful on Wednesday a program that has shielded hundreds of thousands of undocumented young adults from deportation and allowed them to legally work in the United States, rejecting a new rule that the Biden administration had introduced to address the court’s concerns.

The decision will prevent new applicants from applying for the program, but will not affect current applicants:

The decision is the latest twist in a five-year-long court saga that has left the program and its beneficiaries, known as Dreamers, hanging in the balance. While the ruling is a blow to the immigrants, the judge did not mandate an immediate end to the program. Current applicants will be able to keep and renew their protection. No new applications will be allowed.

“There are no material differences between the two programs,” the judge wrote in his 40-page opinion, adding that his decision did not compel the government to “take any immigration, deportation or criminal action against any DACA recipient.”

Here’s the full text of the tweet:

🚨 #BREAKING: A federal judge has declared Biden’s program for “undocumented immigrants” ILLEGAL after a legal battle with Texas and other states.

Biden had been pushing to codify Obama’s illegal DACA immigration policies, which would allow many illegals to GET PAID TAXPAYER DOLLARS VIA SOCIAL SECURITY AND MEDICARE while receiving other benefits.

In a suit brought by Texas Attorney General @KenPaxtonTX, these particular illegal immigrants impose on the the state of Texas (aka the TAXPAYER) a cost of more than $250,000,000 per year and another $533,000,000 annually in costs to local Texas communities.


 Meanwhile, here’s the order itself: 

Of course, legal battles like this are never over till they’re over, and this one very well end up before SCOTUS:

The government is almost certain to appeal the decision to the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, experts said, and the case is likely to end up in the Supreme Court.
