DESPITE TRUMP’S BEST EFFORTS, HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF IMMIGRANTS EARN REPRIEVE FROM DEPORTATION
Last week, Jeff Sessions attacked a court ruling that gave a temporary reprieve to hundreds of thousands of immigrants facing imminent deportation after years of living lawfully in this country.  "Federal district court judges are not empowered to fashion immigration policy," Sessions said. "The Legislative and Executive branches of federal and state government are the constitutionally authorized branches to do these things." Complain as he might, the judiciary indeed has a say, because the executive branch has to follow the law and, most important, the Constitution. As the court found, the administration violated both federal law and the Constitution’s protection against race discrimination when it attempted to terminate the lawful immigration status of these individuals. As a result of the ruling, more than 300,000 immigrants will be able to stay in this country for at least another year even as the government appeals the decision. AHILAN ARULANANTHAM READ MORE
