Secretary’s 2014 DHS Directive establishing the Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents (“DAPA”) program

Here's the 28 page order by the Judge.
These DOJ lawyers lied directly to this Judge and the 26 states for months. They said not 1 application was being processed under the updated DACA, all they while doing it behind their backs. It wasn't until the number reached 100,000 that the DOJ came clean.
The ridiculousness of the ethics violations unbelievable. The Judge says even brings up Miracle on 34th Street to relate how even a fictional child in 1947 knew it was common sense to tell the truth in court.
The Court next turns to the topic of candor. Candor in court is such a self-evident concept that it is almost too mundane to discuss in an opinion. Indeed, when one addresses the need for honesty in court, it is hard not to speak in platitudes. It is such a truism that all Americans, if not individuals worldwide, are familiar with the requirement. This concept is so pervasive that it can be seen in almost any aspect of society. One example that easily comes to mind is that drawn from the beloved movie Miracle on 34th Street when the young child of the assistant district attorney is called to the witness stand:
Mr. Gailey: Will Thomas Mara please take the stand? (Attorney for Mr. Kringle)
Thomas Mara Sr.: Who, me? (Assistant District Attorney
Mr. Gailey: Thomas Mara Jr. (Spectators Murmuring)
Tommy Mara Jr.: Hello, Daddy.
Mr. Gailey: Here you are, Tommy.
The Judge: Tommy, you know the difference between telling the truth and telling a lie, don’t you?
Tommy Mara Jr.: Gosh, everybody knows you shouldn’t tell a lie, especially in court. (Spectators Chuckling)
The Judge: Proceed, Mr. Gailey.
The need to tell the truth, especially in court, was obvious to a fictional young Tommy Mara Jr. in 1947, yet there are certain attorneys in the Justice Department who apparently have not received that message, or more likely have just decided they are above such trivial concepts. Regardless of the motivation behind the conduct, multiple misrepresentations over a period of months both in pleadings and in open court cannot be ignored—especially when, as here, they were made knowingly and had the effect of depriving the millions of individuals represented by the Plaintiff States of a valuable remedy.

So when we going to hear about perjury charges? This appears to be lying to the court. The lawyers should be disbarred and the government reps fired.
