Texas Attorney General Paxton: We must phase out DACA and return to the rule of law

By Ken Paxton Published August 02, 2017 Fox News


As a faithful and longtime reader of the Wall Street Journal, I have always respected the opinions of its editorial board. But I have to take exception with the Journal’s “A Bad GOP Dream,” which gets it all wrong on why I led a 10-state coalition asking President Trump to rescind the Obama administration’s 2012 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.


At the outset, let me set the record straight: Our request does not ask the federal government to deport any alien currently covered by DACA. Nor does it ask the Trump administration to rescind DACA permits that have already been issued. Rather, the request is to phase out these unlawful actions by not renewing or issuing any new DACA permits.

It’s a mystery to me how the Journal can accuse our coalition of political grandstanding when the editorial board itself acknowledges that “DACA has similar constitutional deficiencies” as the Obama-era memo that created the Deferred Action for Parents of Americans (DAPA) program in 2014.    :snip:
