BREAKING: The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit today upheld a lower court’s ruling to block @realDonaldTrump’s termination of DACA, allowing ~800,000 DACA recipients nationwide to submit renewal applications. 1/ #DefendDACA
@realDonaldTrump Attention DACA recipients! The future of #DACA is uncertain but your ability to renew your DACA is in your hands.

@realDonaldTrump @UNITEDWEDREAM @FWDus Trump’s attack on #DACA more than a year ago upended the lives of hundreds of thousands of immigrant youth and their families. His administration has since gone to extreme lengths to end the program without regard for how it has impacted people’s lives. nytimes.com/2018/11/08/opi… 3/

To #DACA recipients who follow me for immigration info - this thread is to explain the updates of today's litigation move by the Trump Admin for you, follow along below 1/
As you recall a couple weeks ago I was highlighting that DOJ issued a letter to the 9th circuit essentially saying "rule or we'll go to SCOTUS without your ruling on the 31st" - so we've been in wait n see mode since Halloween awaiting their filing. 2/
So what happened today is essentially the administration's follow through on their original threat letter to the 9th Circuit. During that period of time the 9th Circuit never ruled. What was a bit different that happened today that wasn't mentioned in their letter is that 3/

To break down in human terms what this letter roughly means on #DACA lit, basically DOJ is like hey 9th Circuit what’s taking you so long, we’re demanding u rule so we can go to SCOTUS & overturn your ruling, do it now but either way we’re going to file a wk before Election Day.
What it also means is they’ve prob done the same math the rest of us did which was we might be able to get out of next year’s term at the current pace of their attempts to make a conflict in the 5th so they’re like screw it we have Kavanaugh now let’s just use the 9th for speed.

2/ You’ve heard of the @BetoORourke v @tedcruz race, right?

The thing is, Texas has a number of competitive statewide races this cycle, one of which is for attorney general.

The incumbent, @KenPaxtonTX, is under indictment, an ideologue, and even less likable than Cruz.
3/ By contrast the Democrat, @NelsonforTexas, is a highly qualified centrist who has clerked for two Reagan appointees and was provoked into running because Paxton is legitimately a threat to the rule of law.

Also, Nelson is not under indictment. Strikes me as quite lawful.

Exactly a year ago, @realDonaldTrump made the cowardly decision to terminate #DACA but sent AG Sessions to face the nation. Sessions glowed as he delivered the hate-filled news. 1/
Within hours, our courageous plaintiffs Martin Batalla-Vidal @elianadreams @antonioalarconc & many more members of @MaketheRoadNY courageously sued to block Trump's decision to end #DACA 2/
We @NILC_org have the great privilege of representing them along w/ @MaketheRoadNY & @WiracYls. Since then #DACA recipients have also courageously sued as have @DemocraticAGs & our civil rights partners like @NAACP & @MALDEF are also defending #DACA 3/

THREAD: A year ago today, a smiling Jeff Sessions walked onto stage and giddily announced the end of #DACA, taking away the ability for me and 800,000 others to keep living and working in the only country we consider home. He could hardly contain his excitement. It was wild. 1/
That announcement threw my life into total chaos. I’ve lived here for 22 YEARS, since I was 6 years old, & can’t imagine a life anywhere else.I’m a former Girl Scout & proud graduate of Rona ld Reagan High School w/ law school ambitions. Here’s me one year b4 I moved to Texas. 2/
Again: I came here as a six year old. I made my best friends here. I learned how to add & subtract numbers here. I learned to love country music here. Some of my DACA friends came here before they were old enough to read or walk; now they have kids of their own! 3/

One year ago today, President Trump announced he was ending the #DACA program. With the stroke of a pen, he could fix it and give #Dreamers the future they deserve in the only country they call home. #SaveDACA
Since President Trump announced he was ending #DACA one year ago, he has rejected at least 6 bipartisan deals to give #Dreamers a future here in America. He’s proven time and again he has no interest in solving the crisis he created.
Instead of working with Democrats, Trump has sabotaged every effort to save #Dreamers and tried to put his entire hardline immigration agenda on their backs. We need bipartisan action, not hateful, anti-immigrant rhetoric. #DreamActNow

Even if Trump was a racist, ( He's not ) If I cared about an issue , I would work with him if he was willing to help me, I would not sit on my A$$ and wait 7 years until someone I liked more came along! That is selfish and self centered AF !

#TuesdayThoughts
You had a black President for 8 years and he didn't do sh*t for poor inner cities or push for any prison reform. He was to busy giving amnesty to illegals via #DACA and fighting for Transgender restrooms and creating a caliphate in Syria! Get woke !!
My man @kanyewest tried to get Bathhouse Barry to help stop the violence in Chicago and he blew him off !!! Obama had a globalist agenda and he cared more about his religion than black people. See everything he pushed for in middle east . So many blind folks out there.

DACA UPDATE: DC district court partially stayed a previous order to fully reinstate #DACA. This means that USCIS will not accept first time applications or advance parole for now. DACA renewals are still being accepted. 📣 1/
Three federal courts that have now said that the Trump administration’s termination of DACA was wrong. 2/ #ProtectDreamers
This development in the DC case eliminates Texas’ explanation for why they need an immediate halt to #DACA renewals. Simply put: they have no real argument. 3/

6 years ago, the government began accepting the first applications for the #DACA program, changing the lives of 800,000 young immigrants who could now receive temporary protection from deportation, study, and legally work in the only country they have ever known. #ProtectDreamers
I was there when #Dreamers came to Navy Pier by the thousands to apply for #DACA. They just wanted the chance be a part of America’s future. nytimes.com/2012/08/16/us/…

Federal Judge orders full restart of DACA program - The restart won’t be immediate. U.S. District Judge John Bates said the order would be delayed until Aug. 23 to allow the government to appeal. apple.news/ADbtC1iiDTMOLC…
In a 25-page opinion Friday, Bates, an appointee of former President George W. Bush, rejected the administration’s argument that the original decision to end DACA remained sound. #DACA
If Friday’s ruling goes into effect later this month, the administration will be required to accept new applications from people who meet DACA’s eligibility requirements.

You can’t make this s**t up @SenWarren @SenatorCarper @SenWhitehouse @SenBlumenthal are demanding an investigation from the Department of Defense IG into who’s toured Air Force One. These people are insane, what a horrific waste of resources. #VOTEDEMSOUT
WHAT do you think giving tours to campaign donors was for? You are a further embarrassment to the VA Committee Blumenthal the @DeptofDefense has better sh*t to do like defend the Country.

A short important thread on DACA: 1- Those who have DACA, go ahead & put in your renewal application even if your status doesn’t expire in 150 days. USCIS will accept the renewal application for NOW. 2. As of Aug. 8 there could be a 🛑 stop on all renewals from a fed judge in TX.

@realDonaldTrump I miss Jon Stewart so much...
@realDonaldTrump DEC 8, 2010: House votes 216-198 to pass the DREAM Act. All but 8 Republicans vote no, incl Ryan, McCarthy, Scalise

DEC 18, 2010: DREAM Act is filibustered in the Senate, 55y-41n. YESes are 52 Ds + 3 Rs. NOs are 5 Ds + 36 Rs incl McConnell, Cornyn, Thune
@realDonaldTrump @RepSwalwell : The @HouseGOP defeated our 22nd attempt (since @realDonaldTrump announced #DACA’s termination) to bring the bipartisan #DREAMAct to the floor for a vote. Remember this when they claim they'll help #Dreamers, as more than 3/4 of Americans want.

Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) allowed some individuals who were brought to the US illegally as children to receive a renewable two-year period of deferred action from deportation and become eligible for a work permit in the U.S. #DemHistory #WhyIVoteDemocrat
The DACA policy was announced by President Barack Obama on June 15, 2012, and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) began accepting applications for the program on August 15, 2012. #DemHistory #WhyIVoteDemocrat #DACA
Studies have shown that #DACA increased the mental health outcomes for DACA-eligible immigrants and their children.There are no known major adverse impacts from DACA on native-born workers' employment, and most economists say that DACA benefits the U.S. economy #DemHistory

Last week, USCIS issued two new memos that are going to affect *all* immigration applications. That includes green cards, fiancé visas, H-1B's, citizenship, work permits, extensions and changes of status - the whole nine yards.
The first memo says that if an application is denied, and that denial leaves the applicant without lawful immigration status, the applicant will be placed in removal proceedings (deportation.)

uscis.gov/news/news-rele…
The second memo says that if an application is filed incompletely, without certain required evidence, then USCIS has the right to deny the application *without* requesting further evidence (commonly known as an "RFE.")

We're here in Montgomery, Alabama rallying to say that #FamiliesBelongTogther & to call to #EndFamilyDetention
At the bus stop where Rosa Parks sparked the Montgomery Bus Boycott, Alabamians protest an injustice of our time - the Trump administration's zero tolerance policy separating families all across America. #EndFamilyDetention #FamiliesBelongTogether
Separating families is wrong and today in Alabama, #TheMarchContinues for immigration reform. #EndFamilyDetention

Marches don't do shit to solve the problems we face as a nation. Due to gerrymandering, Citizens United, NRA and cheating (Scotus, stolen election) we have no opportunity to hold our representatives accountable $ is their only constituent. #FamiliesBelongTogetherMarch
#Resisters stop hoping that either #Mueller or #midterm2018 will right the wrongs of this regime. Realize we must be prepared to simultaneously attack and employ different tactics to win. We have to think out-of-the-box and #justdoit as 1st #womensmarch #msdstrong @MomsDemand
It's time to take a cue from our global trading partners and those who boycotted NC due to HB2 (Bathroom Bill). I propose a nation-wide boycott of GOP states and/or districts until families reunited, #puertorico #flint #BLM #DACA, #ACA #SCOTUS globalnews.ca/news/4304951/c…

This language about curing "taint" from Abbott v. Perez seems tailor-made for a citation in travel ban opinion. "Presumption of legislative good faith" seems very similar to "presumption of regularity." J. Alito mentioned this point deliberately during his hand-down. #SCOTUS.
Similar sentiment from @dorfonlaw
"Meanwhile, I fear further inconsistency with respect to taint, perhaps as early as tomorrow or Wednesday, in the Court's anticipated ruling in the Travel Ban Case." #SCOTUS dorfonlaw.org/2018/06/at-sco…
Relatedly, Perez offers another way another way to rebut allegations of "taint" and animus: demonstrate that decision was motivated by desire to end "expensive and time consuming" litigation. This language will be cited in future litigation over #DACA rescission. #SCOTUS
