    REMINDER: How Obama’s DAPA Executive Action Lost in Four Federal Courts

    REMINDER: How Obama’s DAPA Executive Action Lost in Four Federal Courts – Hillary Clinton Polled it and Realized It Was A Losing Issue…

    D.A.P.A or Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents program – was the executive action Obama attempted in November of 2014 which was shut down by Federal Judge Andrew Hanen in February 2015 with the issuance of an emergency injunction.



    It’s important to note the underlying constitutionality of the case was NEVER heard in Judge Hanen’s court. After Hanen put the emergency injunction in place to stop DAPA from being carried out, all of the DOJ action was directed at removing the injunction.

    However, in an unusual twist, in order to establish the scope of the state and federal argument, the Supreme Court did expand their hearing beyond the injunction to listen to the merit of the Obama administration’s arguments.

    Texas Governor Greg Abbott released a statement following the Supreme Court’s executive amnesty ruling.

    “The action taken by the President was an unauthorized abuse of presidential power that trampled the Constitution, and the Supreme Court rightly denied the President the ability to grant amnesty contrary to immigration laws,” said Governor Abbott. “As the President himself said, he is not a king who can unilaterally change and write immigration laws. Today’s ruling is also a victory for all law-abiding Americans—including the millions of immigrants who came to America following the rule of law.” (link)

    This is why Trump reversed DACA (related in spirit to DAPA) and handed it back to the legislature. It's not in the powers of the president to make laws, only enforce them or lobby to change them.

    Barry Hussein's DACA was illegal.

    Now it's time to go after the RINOs and tell them to kill it once and for all. I haven't checked the status yet, but about 20-30 minutes ago they were supposed to take up a bill called the Bridge Act  (just heard of it a little over an hour ago) that was a sneaky way to keep DACA while pretending it was something else. Hopefully they got enough outrage that they decided to can it for now because they're definitely going to get a lot of  grief if it comes up later.

    Trump's immigration policy means more jobs for Americans

    A report in Politico shows President Trump's crackdown on illegal aliens has led to more jobs and better wages.

    And liberals are crying.

    Boo hoo hoo.


    From Politico:


    President Donald Trump’s harsh criticism of immigration programs and Congress’ refusal to lift a cap on work visas meant many seasonal businesses had to hire American this summer — and pay their workers more.

    That's good news for Trump, for U.S. workers, and for supporters of Trump's “American First” agenda, but business groups complain that increased spending on wages will ultimately cost jobs and sap company profits. Across the country, enterprises ranging from oyster shuckers to landscapers say they were forced to give up contracts and forgo revenue because they just couldn’t find enough workers to do the jobs this summer.

    "There were a lot of businesses that lost a lot of revenue,” said Laurie Flanagan, co-chair of the H-2B Workforce Coalition, a lobbying group with a membership that includes the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

    You know what else boosted wages?

    Ending slavery.


    Funny, last September, liberals -- and their faux conservative lackeys -- sang a different tune. Max Ehrenfreund of the Washington Post wrote, "How Trump’s immigration policies could put Americans out of work," which warned that higher wages would trigger higher prices.

    He cited Mark Zandi, the chief economist at Moody's Analytics, a consultant for John McCain.

    "Asking these folks to leave is going to put a hole in the economy that’s going to cost jobs. It’s going to cost the jobs of American citizens," Zandi said.

    Really?

    So illegal aliens created jobs?

    Just like they told us NAFTA would.

    And they also said NAFTA would decrease the number of illegal aliens.

    I get tired of the lies.


    The upside is more economic activity. The downside is higher prices due to higher costs for businesses. That part in the WaPo-Politico article is right. Not why and how they say, but because more people are working, causing there to be less free labor to fill lower-paying jobs.

    It wouldn't increase unemployment, it would cut it.
