Texas -v- DACA Draws Federal Judge Andrew Hanen, Big Trouble Looms For Immigration Activists…

Yesterday Texas and six other states filed a lawsuit against the the Trump administration over the Presidents’ failure to terminate DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals); an Obama-era program created through ‘executive action’ that allowed work permits and legal status for hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens brought to the U.S. as children.

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton filed the lawsuit in U.S. District Court in Brownsville on Tuesday; asking the court to rule on whether President Obama’s 2012 decision to grant deportation protections and two-year work authorizations to young undocumented immigrants — without congressional approval — was lawful.

A similar program in 2014 known as DAPA (Deferred Action for Parents of Americans) was ruled unconstitutional in 2016.   However, the first executive action, ‘the DACA policy’, has never been challenged in court.

Today, a judge was assigned by random draw for the DACA case, and universal karma has come full circle with the outcome.  Federal Judge Andrew Hanen was drawn as the presiding judge for the DACA challenge.

It cannot be overstated how significantly damaging that judicial draw is to the activist groups who are trying to support the Obama Executive Action.  Judge Andrew Hanen was the original judge on the 2015 DAPA challenge.

Not only was Andrew Hanen the federal judge in the prior DAPA challenge, but Hanen was specifically furious at the gross misconduct by the Obama DOJ during the prior legal proceedings.  Hanen wasn’t a little bit angry at the DOJ, he was FURIOUS (see here).

During the 2015/2016 DAPA proceedings, the DOJ lied -numerous times- to Hanen’s court; and at the conclusion of the SCOTUS ruling (supporting the Hanen rulings), Judge Hanen demanded that all of the DOJ lawyers attend ethics classes – and lambasted Attorney General Loretta Lynch for allowing such gross ethical misconduct.

Additionally, Judge Hanen is an incredibly brilliant judge when it comes to writing opinions that cannot be rebuked by appellate courts or even SCOTUS.  In the 2015 DAPA case Hanen specifically waited to see how a Mississippi appeals court ruled on a tangential aspect to his case before writing his ruling.  As a result the 5th CCA could not overrule his decision.  –BACKSTORY HERE

Texas -vs- DACA drawing Judge Hanen also means the immigration activists in congress will now have to work on legislating a solution.  Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer scored a big loss today:

WASHINGTON –  Texas has already caught its first break in its new lawsuit to stop the Obama-era DACA program, after the case was assigned to U.S. District Judge Andrew S. Hanen.

A Republican appointee to the bench, Judge Hanen has already ruled against a similar deportation amnesty in 2015. And during that case he expressed skepticism about DACA itself, saying it seemed to stray beyond the bounds of discretion then-President Obama had claimed in setting up the program.

Judge Hanen, whose courtroom is in southern Texas, was one of the first to spot to surge of illegal immigrant children headed to the border in 2013 — a surge which crested in 2014 with the UAC wave that overwhelmed the Obama administration, and whose repercussions are still being felt today with the latest caravan of illegal immigrants.

He will now oversee the latest in an ever-expanding and complicated legal battle over DACA, which Mr. Obama created in 2012 to grant tentative legal status to illegal immigrant “Dreamers.” DACA was controversial from the start, and President Trump attempted to phase it out.  (read more)

    Ah, Brownsville, Texas. I read years ago that pregnant Mexicans crossed into that territory over the border to give birth, leave the states and go home……AFTER registering the newborn and leaving a post office box address to receive the checks each month; they probably just had someone, a family member/friend send the check to them each month.

        Having a baby in the US if you are illegal means no hospital bill. A check every month for the baby, food stamps, free medical care until the baby is 85 yrs old. Free day care, free lunches when in school, in some states free college. WIC for baby food. Most parents use the ER for Dr. visits because that is paid for. That is why our ER’s are so backed up and our hospital bills are so high. This has been going on for at least 15 yrs or longer, but if you do not pay your hospital bill, they can take your house away. They tried to do that to my sister.

    The new lawsuit, with six other states joining Texas, did not directly seek to challenge what those other judges had done (Judge Hanen would have no authority to overturn those orders because they deal with the shutdown of DACA not its original form).

    Instead, the 74-page lawsuit was aimed at DACA’s existence from its very beginning by the Obama Administration in June 2012, arguing that the program was always illegal under federal immigration laws and always was unconstitutional. A victory in the case, though, would potentially set up a conflict among federal judges that ultimately would have to be worked out by the Supreme Court.

    The lawsuit contended that, in initiating DACA, President Obama violated the Constitution’s mandate that the president must carry out the laws that Congress enacts.

    “If ever there was a violation of the President’s duty to ‘take care that the laws be faithfully executed,’ ” the lawsuit said, “this is it….Underlying DACA is a dangerously broad conception of Executive power.”

      For anyone using the 14th Amendment argument. A Question – if the 1868 passage of the 14th Amendment gave anyone born on American soil citizenship, why was the 1924 Native American Citzenship Act required? Afterall they were born here too.

      Birthright Citizenship and Dual Citizenship: Harbingers of Administrative Tyranny – July 2008 • Volume 37, Number 7 • Edward Erler

      Dual Citizenship and Decline
      Although the Constitution of 1787 mentioned citizens, it did not define citizenship. It was in 1868 that a definition of citizenship entered the Constitution, with the ratification of the Fourteenth Amendment. Here is the familiar language: “All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.” Thus there are two components to American citizenship: birth or naturalization in the U.S. and being subject to the jurisdiction of the U.S. We have somehow come today to believe that anyone born within the geographical limits of the U.S. is automatically subject to its jurisdiction. But this renders the jurisdiction clause utterly superfluous and without force. If this had been the intention of the framers of the Fourteenth Amendment, presumably they would simply have said that all persons born or naturalized in the United States are thereby citizens.

      Indeed, during debate over the amendment, Senator Jacob Howard of Ohio, the author of the citizenship clause, attempted to assure skeptical colleagues that the new language was not intended to make Indians citizens of the U.S. Indians, Howard conceded, were born within the nation’s geographical limits; but he steadfastly maintained that they were not subject to its jurisdiction because they owed allegiance to their tribes. Senator Lyman Trumbull, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, rose to support his colleague, arguing that “subject to the jurisdiction thereof” meant “not owing allegiance to anybody else and being subject to the complete jurisdiction of the United States.” Jurisdiction understood as allegiance, Senator Howard interjected, excludes not only Indians but “persons born in the United States who are foreigners, aliens, [or] who belong to the families of ambassadors or foreign ministers.” Thus “subject to the jurisdiction” does not simply mean, as is commonly thought today, subject to American laws or American courts. It means owing exclusive political allegiance to the U.S.

      The same kind of confusion that has led us to accept birthright citizenship for the children of illegal aliens has led us to tolerate dual citizenship. We recall that the framers of the Fourteenth Amendment specified that those who are naturalized must owe exclusive allegiance to the U.S. to be included within its jurisdiction. And the citizenship oath taken today still requires a pledge of such allegiance. But in practice dual citizenship—and dual allegiance—is allowed. This is a sign of the decline of American citizenship and of America as a nation-state.

        Lirking Lawyer here.
        There is a complex, never tested at SCOTUS way to gut birthright citizenship without amending the 14th Amendment (whose intent was emancipated former slaves, not Mexican illegals).. What follows is deliberately a bit simplistic for brevity. 14th section 1 contains the clause, “and subject to the jurisdiction thereof”. Now, that was put there because accredited diplomats from foreign countries are expressly NOT subject to jurisdiction (example—they can only be expelled for crimes, not prosecuted) and so their children born here are NOT US citizens by birth.
        So the argument is as follows. Illegal immigrants coming here to have anchor babies NEVER submitted to the jurisdiction of the US— because if they had done so, they would not have come here illegally in the first place.
        Simplified, criminals do not submit to legal jurisdiction, almost by definition. Folks who submit to legal jurisdiction are nominally law abiding, again almost by definition.

          Eliminating dual citizenship for (newly) naturalized citizens reduces the number of dual citizens. There would still be dual citizens born of US parents overseas in some countries, and dual citizens of one US parent and one foreign parent born in the US.

          One of important aspect of natural dual citizenship is that it enables US dual citizens living in the US to hold assets or inherit ancestral assets overseas, usually land.

        i.e. the author explicitly states the clause excludes foreigners and aliens.

        So if these babies are American citizens, that may well be ok. But until they turn 18, they are not allowed to seek any benefits on their own. Policy should say American benefits are intended for Americans only. Children can only be eligible for benefits IF the parents are also eligible. Undocumented parents (AKA illegals) should be deported and must come through the application process in order to re-enter. If the parents desire, the child can remain in the US but will be moved into a group Home and could be made available for adoption.

      There are treaties to establish nationality of the child born to foreign parents on US soil. The mischaracterizations and lawlessness operating in this issue are used to conceal that so-called anchor baby is probably born to the nationality of their father or mother, who cannot confer to the US citizenship. They are citizens of another government. This should all be settled by long-established treaties between nations. Mexican parents give birth to Citizens of Mexico, even when on foreign soil, per treaty.

      As for the horde at the border, they are invaders. Citizens of foreign governments attempting to unlawfully infiltrate. They are not immigrants.

        In the meantime, you can create a clog of illegals on the Mexican side — much to the chagrin of the Mexican gov’t. — and you get the citizens asking some very pointed questions of their duly elected congressmen, which definitely needs to happen (that’s were we, common citizens, come in).

    “A similar program in 2014 known as DAPA (Deferred Action for Parents of Americans) was ruled unconstitutional in 2016. However, the first executive action, ‘the DACA policy’, has never been challenged in court”

    Don’t be disingenuous, WHY was it never challenged in court? It was set to be argued before Sessions intervened and saved DACA. And Yes, it’s still currently in effect. So basically, all this thread is saying is that we are back to step one. Will Sessions step in again and promise to “handle it” if the lawsuit is dropped?

    Sickening. Get these illegals out of my country.

      If the judge orders them to be deported they still aren’t being deported? Is that what you’re saying?

    I hadn’t ever closely read Hanen’s “sanctions” ruling; all I remembered was that, like Sundance said, you could easily feel Hanen’s anger in his words. But I just now read it more closely, and one thing I found hilarious was the NUMBER of ethics violations (LIES) he accused the DOJ of committing. “Over 100,000” !! This guy counted each and every DACA applicant who had come into the system during the time period when the DOJ claimed nothing was going on… no applications being accepted. But there were, in fact, over 100,000 during that time. So Hanen considered each and every one of them a LIE by DOJ.

    Wow… how cool would it have been if he had found the lawyers in contempt. He could then have handed down a token punishment, say ONE HOUR in jail. For EACH “violation”. So… there are about 8,700 hours in a year… SO… each of the DOJ lawyers gets about 11 YEARS!

    (Hey Judge Hanen… you listening? 😉 )

    “It cannot be overstated how significantly damaging that judicial draw is to the activist groups who are trying to support the Obama Executive Action.”

    __________________

    It likewise cannot be overstated how terribly sad it is, that ours is NOT a system of Law applied evenly and fairly to everyone, predictably, according to what the Law actually says.

    Instead, ours is a system where the Law could mean what it says, or the Law could mean nothing at all, depending on what judge you get, because each judge does what is right in his own eyes — one follows the Law and the other follows Marxist ideological outcome-based doctrine — which is CHAOS.

    And chaos is EXACTLY what the 5th column LEFTISTS want.

    It’s by design.

    McCarthy tried to root them out 60 years ago, but the population was easily overpowered by propaganda from the Leftist media.

    We need McCarthy on STEROIDS to eradicate the utter LAWLESSNESS that has become COMMONPLACE in our country.

      Congress could have stopped the lawlessness by bouncing the activist judges out, but instead Congress jumped right in furthering and assisting the lawlessness, chaos, and invasion. Arrest Congress!

        95% of Congress and at least half of the federal judges can all ride to Gitmo together.

        The Executive Orders specifically cover corruption.

        Corruption has become synonymous with Congress and the judiciary.

          Incarceration at Gitmo FIRST, and we’ll get around to giving them due process LATER — if they’re lucky.

          The same way all these crooks want to treat our God-given unalienable 2nd Amendment RIGHTS.

    I got physically ill seeing Sessions trying to speak on this issue. His limited attention being spent (un necessarily) here rather than bringing Criminal Clinton to trial says it all about this walking, mumbling, disaster of a politician. He can barely read outloud, yet the Rule of Law is in his hands. He should be firing Rod Rosenstein today. He should be calling Huber and demanding Indictments. How pathetic our nation of Laws has become to tolerate this idiot.

      I still wouldn’t bet one way or the other on what Sessions is up to with the conspiracy stuff. All I can do is HOPE he’s doing the right thing behind the scenes. And as for all the other stuff he’s been involved in, I’m at least thankful that he apparently has been neutered in his seeming obsession with marijuana. Trump recently declared the feds would NOT interfere with whatever individual states decide. So Jeff’s dream of 24/7 MJ raids is no more. 😉

        exactly. To watch him chasing pot smokers instead of the high level criminal traitors in DC was/ is so maddening. Watching him doing similar kubaki while real work vital to our nation remains undone is beyond disheartening — it’s dereliction, it’s cover up through inaction, it’s complicity in Conspiracy to Obstruct Justice.

        Cover up and no indictments are of equal consequence, justice denied.

    Learning that Judge Hanen will oversee these seven states’ DACA cases is the very best news I have heard about DACA. It is just desserts. It’s about time for some more sweet justice after seeing the no justice yet for the Swamp. Don’t mess with Texas and don’t mess with Judge Hanen. Giddy Up Go!

    To those of us who around, and who have followed all that SD has investigated and analyzed for the years since the Trayvon Martin debacle, Judge Andrew Hanen is a hero. His being assigned this matter is excellent news.

    Those who have doubts are seriously underinformed. Not a good look around here.

    Thank God something is going right. it is so sickening to see these corrupt swamp people still in their jobs and still doing damage to the USA. how many “Moles” do you Obama has right now? he’s been doing it for years and I’ll bet he last 2 months they spent an awful lot of time thinking about that. what a shame it takes a federal case to solve this. anyone with even a little common sense knows it is illegal and immoral to allow all these people in to this country. we have are own poor that need help and they are being screwed over by these people. these illegals are like Cancer.

    America MUST DO MORE to halt illegal infiltration (let’s stop calling it immigration because it is an invasion of America and other nations), it’s ILLEGAL INFILTRATION by foreign nationals with the intent of diluting a predominant culture and destroy it from within while defying ANY form of civil assimilation. INFILTRATION – the action of entering or gaining access to an organization or place surreptitiously, especially in order to acquire secret information or cause damage. What’s coming across the borders is civil unrest, assassinations for hire and Sharia law like http://thoughtcrimeradio.net/2016/06/white-girls-circumcision-in-saudi-arabia/ .
