Judge Edward Chen
Our government is such a fucking joke.
There is no “equal protection clause” for immigrants. That stupid law only applies to American citizens.
Trump can legally deport anyone he wants for any reason – including that he hates the color of their skin.
A federal judge on Wednesday ordered the Trump administration to temporarily halt its plan to end a special federal immigration program that has allowed hundreds of thousands of immigrants to legally live and work in the U.S. for decades.
U.S. District Judge Edward Chen ruled that the administration may have side-stepped federal rule-making guidelines, imposed undue political pressure on staffers, and violated the Equal Protection Clause by basing its decision “on animus against non-white, non-European immigrants.”
The ruling is the latest blow against President Donald Trump’s efforts to overhaul the nation’s immigration laws, following court orders limiting his travel ban targeting majority Muslim countries, his attempt to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, and his policy of separating migrant families along the southwest border.
The preliminary injunction ordered by Chen prevents the deportation of an estimated 240,000 immigrants from El Salvador, Haiti, Nicaragua and Sudan, who were facing a series of deadlines starting in November to depart the country or risk becoming undocumented immigrants.
These immigrants had been granted permission to be in the U.S. under the Temporary Protected Status program, better known as TPS. The humanitarian program was created in 1990 to help immigrants from countries that suffered war or major natural disasters.
The Department of Homeland Security, which manages TPS, has argued that the program has been wrongly extended for years, and that conditions in those four countries are now suitable for thousands of their residents to return home.
You see this – Trump is trying to do everything we want him to do.
He is trying to get them out. He is trying to take their coats.
He is trying hard.
But the entire world is against him – including virtually everyone in the American government.
This is yet another reason we NEED TO WIN BIGLY in the midterms.
