DACA Illegals Sue to Remain on Welfare and Claim Green Card

When the president took office, one of the main objectives in his new administration was the goal of saving Americans money by reducing the inhibitive costs of programs instituted by previous administrations that were either unwieldy, unfair, or questionable in legality.

As is well-known in political circles, much of the legacy of the Obama administration perched upon very shaky legal grounds, Constitutionally speaking. Many of the executive orders penned by the former president were done so precisely because Barack Obama recognized that his wishes were not going to be passed through a Republican-dominated Congress. The many edicts signed into law by President Obama have since been rescinded or altered by the Trump administration simply because the executive orders were not upheld by Congress. This rendered them easily defeated by Trump and that one aspect has driven the Left over the edge of the cliff.

DACA is another one of these executive actions taken by the former president to circumvent Congress and is suffering the same fate, bit by bit, due to his inability to bring the opposing sides of Congress together. In a sense, Obama did a disservice to the children of illegal aliens brought here years ago. His lackadaisical approach to legislation has now led to a mountain of contention and anxiety in the DACA community.

Two of the DACA applicants and a pro-illegal immigrant group called CASA de Maryland have joined forces in a joint lawsuit against the Trump administration over the proposal to end the program.


Two illegal aliens shielded from deportation by President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program are suing the Trump administration to ensure they can collect federal welfare and still obtain green cards to permanently stay in the United States.

The open borders group CASA de Maryland and two DACA illegal aliens are suing the Trump administration over its soon-t0-be enforcement of the “public charge” rule, which would save American taxpayers billions by effectively ending welfare-dependent legal immigration to the U.S.

The regulation prevents legal immigrants from permanently resettling in the U.S. by obtaining green cards so long as they are found to have used or likely to use welfare programs like food stamps and subsidized health care.

The DACA illegal aliens, represented by Georgetown Law’s Institute for Constitutional Advocacy and Protection (ICAP), want a preliminary injunction to stop the implementation of the public charge rule while the case goes through the courts, calling an end to welfare-dependent immigration “discriminatory” and suggesting the rule is racist against non-white immigrants.

Interestingly, the charge that the rule is racist against non-white immigrants is actually a bait-and-switch type of argument. Because an overwhelming majority of illegal aliens stream into this country from Mexico and other Central and South American countries, as well as from many Asian nations, including China and the Philippines, the vast majority of immigrants are naturally non-white. Therefore, a charge that this rule disproportionately affects non-white illegals is only true precisely because non-whites are disproportionately illegally entering the United States.

This fact is neither here nor there, as far as ICAP is concerned because their argument revolves primarily around the tired and overused charge of racism. This may not really matter in the end, however. In August of last year, District Court Judge Andrew Hanen ruled that DACA is most likely unconstitutional.

Since that time, the Trump administration has been working tirelessly to resolve this issue that is severely draining the taxpayer-funded liabilities to the point where they will become unsustainable, even if and when the Development, Relief & Education for Alien Minors Act (or DREAM Act) finally passes Congress into law. This bipartisan bill has been introduced several times over the years and has failed to pass.

Despite outrage from the open borders lobby, Democrats, and establishment media, Trump’s seeking to end welfare-dependent immigration is hugely popular with Hispanic Americans and U.S. voters overall.

The latest Harvard/Harris Poll finds Hispanic Americans, by a majority of 56 percent, support denying permanent residency to immigrants who are known to have used welfare or are likely to use welfare. Likewise, a majority of 65 percent of Hispanic Americans said illegal aliens should not be allowed to draw from taxpayer-funded welfare programs, as well as 71 percent of black Americans.
