A Clinton-appointed federal judge just ordered Trump to keep DACA

Webmaster Comment;

DACA was illegal & done via executive fiat by Barack Obama? The Fifth Circuit Court ruled the Obama DACA executive order illegal; it was then taken to the Supreme court who refused to act on it, therefore by law the Circuit court ruling is the law. How can the 9th district court overrule this, they do not stand above the Supreme court or any other District Court.?

A federal judge in California ordered the Trump administration to maintain the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program late Tuesday, an Obama-era amnesty policy that extends legal status to 700,000 illegal aliens who arrived in the U.S. as children.
 The ruling could ensures DACA’s security as President Donald Trump attempts to reach an immigration deal with Democratic lawmakers. The program was scheduled to phase out in March.   Judge William Alsup, a Bill Clinton appointee, issued the ruling.
“Tonight’s order doesn’t change the Department of Justice’s position on the facts: DACA was implemented unilaterally after Congress declined to extend these benefits to this same group of illegal aliens,” said Justice Department spokesman Devin O’Malley. “As such, it was an unlawful circumvention of Congress, and was susceptible to the same legal challenges that effectively ended DAPA.”
 “The Justice Department will continue to vigorously defend this position, and looks forward to vindicating its position in further litigation,” he added.  The administration justified DACA’s termination on separation of powers grounds, arguing only Congress could authorize such a program.  Alsup strongly rejected this view, pointing to a 2014 Justice Department memo purporting to show that DACA’s features are rooted in Supreme Court case law or related powers granted by Congress.
Since Alsup concluded the program’s rescission was based on a flawed legal premise, he said the action was “arbitrary, capricious, an abuse of discretion, [and] otherwise not in accordance with law.”  Alsup further noted that Trump himself has determined DACA serves the public interest, citing two Sept. 2017 tweets in which the president expressed support for so-called “Dreamers.”  “We seem to be in the unusual position wherein the ultimate authority over the agency, the chief executive, publicly favors the very program the agency has ended,” the judge wrote.
The order does not require the administration to process new DACA applications, and allows law enforcement to remove any DACA recipient believed to pose a threat to national security or public safety.  The Trump administration can ask the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to review Alsup’s decision.  The University of California system brought the suit challenging DACA’s termination. The system is led by Janet Napolitano, the former secretary of Homeland Security who presided over DACA’s original promulgation during the Obama administration.
