DACA back in the news












Back in June, Chief Justice Roberts wrote a DACA opinion that confused everyone. In other words, the Court did not rule on the constitutionality of DACA but rather the manner in which the Trump administration canceled it.  It’s as if the Court told the Trump team that they forgot to answer question # 22 in the application for a loan.  It didn’t approve or reject DACA, but rather just confused everyone.

Over the last few days, a judge in New York wrote an opinion:   

“DHS failed to follow the order of succession as it was lawfully designated,” wrote Garaufis, an appointee of President Bill Clinton. 

“Therefore, the actions taken by purported Acting Secretaries, who were not properly in their roles according to the lawful order of succession, were taken without legal authority.”

I’m not an expert on the legal authority of Acting Secretaries but I do know that presidents can cancel their predecessor’s orders.  Didn’t President Obama reverse President Reagan and Bush on abortion rulings?

So what happens now?  My guess is not much, because the Acting Secretary is not going to act on the opinion.  Also, on a practical point, what DACA window does a “dreamer” go to?  Where is that window in the Immigration Department?

We remember Tom Seaver (1944-2020)

We remember Tom Seaver, one of the best pitchers ever.  He was born in 1944 and died in 2020.

The numbers tell you the story:  311 wins, a 2.86 ERA & 3,640 Ks.    His best year was probably 1969 when the Mets won the World Series:  25-7, a 2.21 ERA and the Cy Young.   

By the way, did I tell you that he threw 231 complete games, twenty-seven 3-hitters, ten 2-hitters, five 1-hitters and a no hitter?  Wonder why they used to call him "Tom Terrific"?

1558: Elizabethan Age begins


Elizabeth became Queen of England on this day in 1558.    She ruled until 1603 and was one of the great monarchs of England.    
So we remember Queen Elizabeth today.

Drew Henson should have played football

(P.S. You can listen to my show (Canto Talk) and follow me on Twitter.)

Drew Henson was 
26 when the Cowboys released him in August 2006.   Henson started only one game in Dallas, filling in for the injured Vinny Testaverde on Thanksgiving Day 2004.     Testaverde took over after halftime and that was it for Henson as a Dallas Cowboy.

What an amazing story.   Henson decided to play baseball and signed with the Yankees.   After 3 years in the minors, ARod was playing third base in New York so Henson decided to play football.

Henson never lived up to expectations in baseball or football.   It's a shame!   He had all of the natural tools but I think that he made a mistake by playing baseball rather than going directly to the NFL after college.
