SOTOMAYOR: ENDING DACA IS A CHOICE TO ‘DESTROY LIVES’

Lord, we look to You for Your will in this SCOTUS case. We pray for a just decision.

During oral arguments at the United States Supreme Court Tuesday on the future of the Deferred Action on Childhood Arrivals (DACA) amnesty program, Justice Sonia Sotomayor injected politics into the discussion, saying President Donald Trump has said he would find a way to keep DACA recipients in the United States but has not done so.

Pray for the Supreme Court by name with our shareable resource, Upholding our Leaders.

Sotomayor also addressed what other justices cited — the “reliance interests” of DACA recipients, or how the government program has allowed illegal migrants to get Social Security numbers, drivers licenses, and work permits that they have come to rely on.

Sotomayor said:

I think my colleagues have rightly pointed [out] there’s a whole lot of reliance interests that weren’t looked at, including the very President of — current President telling DACA-eligible people that they were safe under him and that he would find a way to keep them here. And so he hasn’t and, instead, he’s done this. And that, I think, has something to be considered before you rescind a policy. 

“Right,” Solicitor General Noel Francisco said.  

“Not just say I’ll give you six months to do it,” Sotomayer said, referring to Trump’s past announcement that he would hold off on rescinding DACA for six months to allow Congress to come up with a legislative solution.

“And where is the political decision made clearly?” Sotomayor said referring to the June 22, 2018 memorandum issued by Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen to explain why the department was rescinding DACA.

That this is not about the law; this is about our choice to destroy lives,” Sotomayor said, directly expressing what she believed a ruling to end DACA would mean to those enrolled in it.

Francisco argued that DACA, put in place by President Barack Obama’s executive action in 2012, was not legal or highly likely to be illegal and it also would “hamstring” federal law enforcement from enforcing immigration law.

But the heart of the case revolves around two issues: Can the courts review the government’s rescission of the DACA program? And was the government’s decision to rescind DACA “arbitrary and capricious” in violation of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA), which sets standards for federal agency actions that are generally enforceable in the courts?

The case analysis by Steven D. Schwinn of the University of Illinois Chicago John Marshall School of law noted that “As of 2017, when the government rescinded the program, there were nearly 700,00 active DACA recipients. Their average age was just under 24-years-old. Over 90 percent were employed and 45 percent were in school.”

Many of the groups submitting Amicus briefs in favor of DACA in perpetuity — or forever — were educational institutions and U.S. businesses who benefit from this demographic.

The entities backing DHS were those groups that believe DACA is not constitutional and benefits those in the country illegally while threatening the employment and educational opportunities of citizens.

A ruling in the case is expected in June 2020.

  1. How sad this all is. The sins of the father falling on the children. Bringing their children here illegally to give them a better life and now these same children in this awful predicament! The children are not guilty of crime–they simply obeyed their parents. Is there no room at the Inn for them?

  2. President Trump clearly gave over to Congress the responsibility to propose legislation in support or to end the DACA program. Like many other issues that have not been dealt with by Congress there are 435 representatives of the the people of this nation, legal and illegal, upon whom the Constitution lays the responsibility for proposing and enacting legislation which in this case they have failed to do for over two years. It is the Executive Branches responsibility to administer and carry out the law, not to write it. It is the Judicial Branches responsibility to determine if existing law is constitutional and if so to determine if the law has been upheld or broken. It is not the Judiciary’s responsibility to write or rewrite law.

    Father God, I call out to you to send your ministering and warring angels to bring your shalom to our Government (Shalom = Destroys the “authority” which builds or establishes Chaos). Lord I call upon your people who are called by your name not just to repent but also to take up their responsibility to begin to take possession of the Kingdom so that the Ancient of Days might rule in favor of the saints of the most high.
    I ask you Lord that your Holy Spirit shall be poured out over the some 60%+ members of congress who claim to be Christians, that each one may receive your wisdom and clearly hear your voice even if they have never heard or asked to hear it before. I pray for a day of praise to lift up your name be brought forward on Capital Hill during which the vast majority of the members of congress life their voice to praise you in the halls of the Capital joined by millions of our brothers and sisters in Christ simultaneously on the Mall.

    I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. So choose life in order that you may live, you and your descendants, by loving the Lord your God, by obeying His voice, and by holding fast to Him;

  3. Justice Sotomayer is way off base. Justices are supposed to rule according to the Constitution and the law, not according to their political preferences or what they think the law should be. Such bad behavior by “progressive” justices/judges is how we came to lose the right to pray in schools. And it is how legalized abortion and same-sex marriage came to be.
    Justices are to rule according to the Constitution and the law, and not legislate from the bench.
    Lord, give us more justices and judges who will rule rightly.

  4. Praying for SCOTUS to have the wisdom and insight of the Most High God in this matter. Lord, impart to each of them A desire to please You in their decisions that should be based on law and the constitution.

  5. As Americans we too have had dreams. The Bible teaches to rely on Him, not government welfare programs. So here we have a case of illegal immigrants taught to rely on “free rights”. My experience is that when people like this “grow up” they become dependent on the welfare system including healthcare which usually means repairing drug damage. This DACA is a socialist Trojan horse. Yes, I’m sorry for these people who have been led to believe or want to believe that America will fulfill their dreams. It’s called deception. Judicial watch has an article about Guatemala dated nov 13 which is insightful. The DACA folks might work today but then comes disability. It’s learned generational behavior. And they lose their identity, not belonging here or there. Only Christ can intervene and help. These people have chosen to cripple themselves and my experience tells me that unless they seek Christ they will remain as they are. Maybe George Soros can pay for each one of them, including their education and healthcare fore the rest of their lives. And exactly what kind of educational goals does each one have. The people yelling and screaming remind me of two year old children. If they get what they want now this way, this is what they might choose to do the rest of their lives,
