Jeff Sessions spent the last two years in Donald Trump’s crosshairs.
The President was furious that Sessions recusal allowed the Mueller investigation to consume the administration.
But now Sessions made the one announcement that had Trump supporters jumping for joy.
Donald Trump announced he was ending Obama’s illegal executive amnesty program in September 2017.
Democrats immediately sued.
They essentially argued it was unconstitutional for Donald Trump to be President.
But rather than waste time going through left-wing courts like the Ninth Circuit, Sessions and the Justice Department asked the Supreme Court hear the case immediately.
That could lead to a resolution by next Summer.
U.S. Solicitor General Noel Francisco petitioned the Supreme Court on Monday to immediately review the legality of the Trump administration’s ending the DACA amnesty program, bypassing the Ninth Circuit appeals court and ending the six-year legal saga by next summer.
Former Secretary Janet Napolitano created the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) for more than 400,000 illegal aliens in 2012, which the Obama administration in 2014 expanded to a larger amnesty, DAPA, covering over one million additional illegal aliens.
Texas and various other states challenged DAPA as illegal. The federal district and later the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit agreed, striking down the amnesty program. The Supreme Court then tied 4-4 on the case after the sudden death of Justice Antonin Scalia, leaving the Fifth Circuit’s judgment against DAPA in place.
Republican voters fought to win the 2016 election so Trump could make Supreme Court nominations.
Putting Justices Kavanaugh and Gorsuch on the bench should lead to a favorable ruling in this open-and-shut case.
