National Immigration Law Center: Trump’s DACA Termination Is Illegal
By Doug Cunningham
[Karen Tumlin]: “In ending DACA, Trump has broken the law. We’re now going to court to defend the rights of all DACA recipients.”
Karen Tumlin, Legal Director at the National Immigration Law Center. Tumlin says Trump’s DACA action violates the Administrative Procedures Act and is also unconstitutional.
[Karen Tumlin]: “We also charge that this move violates the equal protection clause. Trump’s decision to terminate the DACA program is preceded by a well-documented record of racial animus directed at Mexicans and Latinos.”
On January 25, 2017, Trump said “DREAMERS shouldn’t be very worried because I have a big heart. ” Rusty Hicks, Executive Director of the Los Angeles County Federation of Labor says with the termination of DACA we’ve learned Trump’s so-called big heart is cold.
