The Washington Times reported:
“The legal question isn’t even a close one. You’ve already had multiple courts say that a similar amnesty that came a few years after DACA was completely illegal,” Mr. Kobach, Kansas Republican, said on Fox News. “It’s a loser. And the president, if he were to continue DACA, would lose in court and politically.”
“It would be a very bad political construction because his base would be cheering against him when his administration loses,” he said.
DACA — Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals — is an immigration policy started under former President Barack Obama to allow certain illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children to stay. Mr. Trump has said he wanted to end the program, but has since been open to preserving parts of it in a slower phase-out method.
