DACA, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals continues to be in the news, after years of controversy as a hot button issue for elections that provide the Democrats with numerous narratives about racism and injustice against anyone who opposes the landmark Executive Order by former President Barack H. Obama.
A recent interview on FOX News has caused alarm bells on the left that Trump is about to make a move on DACA that they may not like.
This week, Democrats have been upset that the President Donald J. Trump administration is rejecting new DACA applications, “defying” a US Supreme Court ruling as the LA Times calls it, signaling he is making changes to Obama’s legacy transformation of American law and order.
What they are really afraid of is that Trump may do what the Democrats claim only Obama had the power to do, change things by Executive Orders.

Axios reported Tuesday, framing the narrative against Trump that “President Trump and top White House officials are privately considering a controversial strategy to act without legal authority to enact new federal policies — starting with immigration, administration officials tell Axios.
Between the lines: The White House thinking is being heavily influenced by John Yoo, the lawyer who wrote the Bush administration’s justification for waterboarding after 9/11,” showing that Axios is scared.
At issue, now is a June 18th, SCOTUS ruling in Trump V. NAACP , with a ruling that Democrats are worried about actually giving Trump broader powers, even though it was generally thought the SCOTUS beat Trump back then.

From the SCOUTS blog,”Judgment: Affirmed and remanded, 5-4, in an opinion by Chief Justice Roberts on June 18, 2020. Roberts delivered the opinion of the court except as to Part IV. Justices Ginsburg, Breyer and Kagan joined that opinion in full, and Justice Sotomayor joined as to all but Part IV. Justice Sotomayor filed an opinion concurring in part, concurring in the judgment in part and dissenting in part. Justice Thomas filed an opinion concurring in the judgment in part and dissenting in part, in which Justices Alito and Gorsuch joined. Justices Alito and Kavanaugh filed opinions concurring in the judgment in part and dissenting in part.”
According to Axios, Justice John Roberts agrees, reporting, “Yoo told Axios that Chief Justice John Roberts’ opinion ‘sets out a roadmap about how a president can use his prosecutorial discretion to under-enforce the law.”
Why the left is worried:
Trump said in a highly publicized interview with Chris Wallace on Fox News, his plans for a new Executive Order on DACA” that the Supreme Court decision on DACA gave me the right to do.”

Trump gave his timeline as two weeks for a new Health Care Plan, and a New DACA plan.
In other words, it’s not so funny when the rabbit has the gun. Democrats are concerned that Trump could use the power and authority they demand Obama had, to undo and even add to a new Immigration Executive Order on immigration.
