The POTUS keeps trashing every bad Obama records that only serviced his “political correctness” agenda…..
President Trump has won a major court victory over an Obama-era refugee program that allowed hundreds of immigrants from Central America to be brought in by family members living in the U.S in a process that some refer to as “chain migration.”
KSBY reported that a federal judge in San Francisco says the Trump administration provided adequate justification for its decision to end a program that reunited hundreds of immigrants from Central America with family members in the U.S.
U.S. Magistrate Judge Laurel Beeler on Monday threw out the bulk of a lawsuit that argued the termination of the Obama-era Central American Minors program was arbitrary and violated the U.S. Constitution.
The International Refugee Assistance Project, a legal advocacy group representing plaintiffs, did not immediately have comment.
President Trump has been chipping away at Obama’s legacy, including nullifying much of his signature healthcare bill.
The Trump administration provided adequate justification for its decision to end a program that reunited hundreds of immigrants from Central America with family members in the U.S., a federal judge ruled Monday.
Magistrate Judge Laurel Beeler threw out the bulk of a lawsuit that argued the termination of the Obama-era Central American Minors program was arbitrary and violated the U.S. Constitution.
The program allowed parents legally in the U.S. to apply to bring children or other family members living in Honduras, Guatemala or El Salvador to the U.S
One of the goals was to discourage children from making the dangerous journey from those countries to the U.S. to be with family.
More than 1,300 people came to the U.S. under the program between 2014 and the end of 2016, according to figures cited in Beeler’s decision.
When it ended the program in August 2017, the Trump administration revoked approval for roughly 2,700 additional immigrants who were set to travel to the U.S.
her ruling, Beeler said the decision to revoke those approvals was arbitrary and capricious and required more analysis and explanation.
- Linda Evarts, an attorney with the International Refugee Assistance Project who is representing plaintiffs, said she welcomed that part of the ruling and called the decision “an important first step.”
Beeler in a separate order suggested the plaintiffs might be able to revise their lawsuit to address some of her concerns.
