11 states are suing POTUS for ending DACA.
From The Hill:
Eleven states and the District of Columbia filed a lawsuit Wednesday
against President Trump’s decision to roll back the previous administration’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.
“The president has made numerous statements on the campaign trail and
in office disparaging Mexicans,” Washington State Attorney General Bob Ferguson (D) said
in announcing the suit. “We allege the president’s own statements make clear
that DREAMers are being targeted based on their national origin.”
Ferguson, New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman (D) and
Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey (D) spearheaded the suit.
They are joined by Democratic attorneys general from Connecticut, New Mexico,
Illinois, Hawaii, North Carolina, Oregon, Rhode Island, Delaware and Washington, D.C.
In a press conference in Seattle, Wa., Ferguson (D) said the states would challenge Trump’s action on four fronts.
The suit, filed in the Eastern District of New York, will allege the decision violates the
Administrative Procedure Act in two different ways, while also violating the due
process and equal protection clauses of the Constitution.
