Kamala Harris’ political problems multiply on a daily basis.
Now her biggest challenge is about to morph into a full-on crisis.
And this major loss in court will have a devastating impact on Kamala Harris’ life.
Kamala Harris’ job as the Biden administration’s border czar just got a whole lot tougher.
U.S. District Court Judge Andrew Hanen ruled on Friday that Barack Obama’s amnesty program for illegal alien children –“DACA”- was unconstitutional.
Judge Hanen ruled that only Congress had the authority to rewrite immigration law.
“Given the nine-year history of failed legislation in Congress, it is an inescapable conclusion that DACA is not interstitial to any congressional action,” Judge Hanen wrote. “Although Congress may someday enact such a DREAM Act, until it does, its continued failure to pass bills coextensive with the DACA population evinces a rejection of this policy.”
However, Judge Hanen limited his order to blocking the administration from issuing new amnesty permits.
The 600,000 illegal aliens who received amnesty through the program will keep their ability to remain in America free from the threat of deportation.
“Hundreds of thousands of individual DACA recipients, along with their employers, states, and loved ones, have come to rely on the DACA program,” Judge Hanen added. “Given those interests, it is not equitable for a government program that has engendered such a significant reliance to terminate suddenly. This consideration, along with the government’s assertion that it is ready and willing to try to remedy the legal defects of the DACA program indicates that equity will not be served by a complete and immediate cessation of DACA.”
This ruling will cause Democrat Party and open borders activists to ramp up pressure on Harris to support blowing up the legislative filibuster so Chuck Schumer can muscle an amnesty bill through the Senate with just Democrat votes.
But multiple Senate Democrats are on the fence about nuking the filibuster so this drive could run into a brick wall and frustrate party activists.
That could all depend on the amount of grassroots pressure there is opposing Democrats’ attempts to gut the filibuster.
But since Harris is in charge of immigration, blame from the Left will fall on Harris’ head.
