A Texas-based federal judge is set to hear arguments Wednesday in a case that could hand President Donald Trump a win in the ongoing legal battle over Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals and put the program’s fate in the hands of the Supreme Court.
District Judge Andrew Hanen will preside over a hearing in a lawsuit brought by seven states against the federal government over DACA, the Obama-era program that shields younger illegal immigrants from deportation.
Led by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, the lawsuit argues that DACA was an unconstitutional exercise of executive authority and asks for a nationwide injunction to halt the program.
The Trump administration’s position on DACA’s constitutionality mirrors that of the Texas-led coalition, so the Department of Justice has decided not to defend the program in Hanen’s court.

What's good for the goose right?
Our country is absolutely gone to snip, when politics are deployed interpreting the law by judges rather than the law they took an Oath to adhere too.
We wonder why the Progs are losing their minds over the next SCOTUS pick???

If Congress were doing their damn job this would have been fixed by now.
They are useless and more concerned about saying no than doing what's right.
