The Constitution makes no allowance for the president to write law “if Congress doesn’t act.”
The reaction to DACA exposes much of the disingenuousness of the post-election “norms” crowd.How could those who took part in the national hissy fit over the “unconstitutional” short-term executive restriction on immigration from terrorist-ridden nations now act as if DACA is a proper way to govern?I mean, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has threaten to sue the president for rolling back the executive actions of another president, which were enacted ostensibly on the idea of prosecutorial discretion.Sue over what—following the law as written?By the way, DACA has already been through courts, and as with most of Obama’s assault on process, it fared rather poorly.Now that Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton and others are threatening to sue, and the Supreme Court is back to nine justices, DACA would almost certainly lose there, as well.As it should.
