Republican appointed Fifth Circuit judges side with Republican AGs lawsuit that threatens to deport millions of DACA – Dreamers. – Americas Voice
Supreme Justices Silently Back Anti-Immigrant Extremist Judge by affirming the legally flawed and deeply politicized lower-court decisions blocking DACA. The lives of millions of U.S. citizens and non-U.S. citizens at stake in this litigation. Seldom have so many hopes been crushed by so few words.”- Newsweek

Dreamers are part of their communities
“They are deeply enmeshed in their communities, so the idea they would leave is quite speculative. … At the end of the day, it’s almost impossible to know what would happen,” Boynton argued.
“Lack of resources to deport the estimated 11 million immigrants. Boynton noted to qualify for DACA people have must lived continuously in the U.S. since June 15, 2007. Boynton said DACA is merely part of the government’s solution to its lack of resources to deport the estimated 11 million immigrants living in the U.S. without papers. – Court House News
Republican bid to end DACA
“In his bid to end DACA protections for young immigrants, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton went 350 miles out of his way to file suit in Brownsville’s federal courthouse. The effort paid off when he got the judge he wanted. U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen, nominated by George W. Bush, has lambasted the Obama administration’s immigration practices in prior cases and gave Paxton a victory in a similar lawsuit in 2015.
Critics also accused Paxton of forum shopping, the practice of filing lawsuits in a specific court in hopes of getting a sympathetic judge — in this case, Hanen. “The whole idea is that we’re picking judges to call things as they see it, fairly and accurately, according to the rule of law. And if you know your judge on the way in and you think that judge is going to give you a nationwide injunction, then I think it’s contrary to our notion of equal justice under the law and that justice is blind,” Nelson said.
“There are folks who have very little doubt about which way Judge Hanen is likely to rule,” said Stephen Vladeck, a University of Texas law professor who focuses on constitutional law and federal jurisdiction. “The concern is that you are picking judges who are outside the mainstream, that you’re … forum shopping basically as a way of getting as unrepresentative a judge as you can get within the federal system.” Such concerns become magnified, Vladeck said, when the goal is a nationwide injunction barring the government from enforcing a specific policy. – Nelson For Texas
Justices obscure their own roles from scrutiny
“Under the cover of an opaque, unsigned opinion that reports only the bare fact of the court’s stalemate, the four justices who voted to affirm those decisions—presumably Chief Justice John Roberts and Justices Anthony Kennedy, Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito—obscure their own roles from public scrutiny at the expense of transparency and accountability.
Like Donald Trump, Judge Andrew Hanen, whose preliminary injunction was affirmed by the Supreme Court’s 4-4 decision, is a man with some long-standing, violently hostile opinions about immigration and the Obama administration.” – Newsweek
