"'The decision to end the DACA program appears to rest exclusively on a legal conclusion that the program was unconstitutional,' Garaufis said. 'Because that conclusion was erroneous, the decision to end the DACA program cannot stand.'"

The quote above from U.S. District Judge Nicholas Garaufi doesn't make sense to me. The program is unconstitutional, how can getting rid of it be illegal?
In 2012 the same judge was accused of bias during a lawsuit involving the FDNY and their hiring process.

This afternoon the Senate is turning to DACA and immigration, beginning with a “motion to proceed” vote. The burden is on Republicans to fix the mess that Donald Trump made on #DACA, as a majority of Americans want them to. [Thread]
Remember, we got here because Donald Trump ended the DACA program back in Sept. And 20,000 DACA recipients have already lost their protections as a result. He then rejected a bipartisan agreement reached by @SenatorDurbin and @LindseyGrahamSC, because it wasn’t racist enough.
So here we are — in an open debate on immigration with a Republican-controlled Congress. If you care about immigrants and #Dreamers, you should be worried. And while we all want relief for Dreamers, we can’t and won’t take just any deal.

Part 1: Feb 7-8, #Qanon responds to anons on the /qresearch 8ch board. Brings up #Snowden again. Questions rift between Pelosi and Schumer.

(I've been catching up on #Q after long flight home. To those who #FollowTheWhiteRabbit this may be "old news". Many Q posts to come!)
Part 2: #Qanon references old #breadcrumbs. Soros, Rothschild, House of Saud; false flags (nukes?) and "kill box"; also notes Martha MacCallum visited white house to cover Schumer "betrayal" of Pelosi over #DACA and budget deal.

#GreatAwakening #TheStorm #FollowTheWhiteRabbit
Part 3: #Qanon posts picture of King Tower: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/King_Tower

“We saw strangers shielding strangers from a hail of gunfire on the Las Vegas strip.”
“To everyone still recovering in Texas, Florida, Louisiana, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, California, everywhere -- we are with you, we love you, and we will always pull through together.”
“With us tonight is one of the toughest people ever to serve in this House -- a guy who took a bullet, almost died, and was back to work 3 & a half months later: the legend from Louisiana, Congressman Steve Scalise.”

As a City Councilmember in Philly, I’ve been thinking a lot about tonight’s #SOTU. Here’s what I wish I would see in 45’s address tonight (although I’m not holding my breath). @LocalProgress /1
1st Economic Justice: Philly is the poorest large city in the US and PA’s $7.25 minimum wage is the lowest in the region. We have over 100K hourly workers in the city alone. /2
Our City Council instituted a 21st Century living wage, passed pay equity/anti-wage theft laws, and we’re holding hearings on #FairWorkweekPHL to address unpredictable hours and help workers and families. /3

Hi @RBReich!

🚨Trump will blatantly LIE during his #SOTU shit-show tonight.

👉I've therefore written a COMPLETE speech for Donald, in his voice. It's raw satire. Grounded in researched facts, while cutting deeply into the fetid flesh of #TheRegime.☠️

Friends,

Here we go. #SOTU!

I'm gonna watch for you.

We're about to watch a Nazi.

Go!
1} A long, quiet applause from the empty suits in an empty room. Trump's meds are working so far. Republican's are spread into a relatively empty chamber audience of very, very, very, very almost exclusively WHITE people! Ugh!

1} My Dear Friend Geri,

With all due respect to current #NonProfits serving Refugees & Immigrants - their Branding & Messaging are #Tragically #Weak.

#OurAmericanKids🇺🇸 are BEING #SCAPEGOATED & #WE, the Liberals of #OurCountry we call the United States of America...
2} ...get OUR #Truthful-#Propaganda #LUNCH handed to us - #EVERY #DAMNED #TIME there's a watershed political issue.

My opinion as a 25-year #Duke MBA-trained-#Strategist, is that "Dreamers" is a well-intentioned, but desperately INEFFECTIVE MONIKER for #OurAmericanKids. Scapegoats for American Fascists
3} My dog #Sadie is a very #Active #Dreamer. Hitler #Dreamed about ruling an #AryanPlanet.

Un-@realDonaldTrump dreams of building a wall "SO fucking HIGH," that planes can't #LAND in #Texas without traveling 100-miles North of our Southern Border - just to pull a #giant U-ey✈️ Hitler Dreamed of an Aryan Planet-Earth.U-Turn in the sky

When are Democrats going to understand that we didn’t lose the Oval in 2016 because we didn’t have the *middle class* on our side?

We lost because of voter suppression, foreign interference, sexism, racism, media bias. Not because we didn’t pander to ¡white! concerns enough.
A Must Read: “Here is the troubling reality for civically minded liberals looking to justify their preferred strategies: Hillary Clinton talked about the working class, middle-class jobs, and the dignity of work constantly. And she still lost.” theatlantic.com/business/archi…
Let’s be clear here: when we turn the discussion away from #DACA and to the *middle class*, we are turning our backs on people of color and deeming their issues as lesser.

Just watched @TuckerCarlson talking to a #DACA girl and now I am really mad! She kept repeating over and over that it is Donald Trump’s fault for rescinding #DACA and talking over @TuckerCarlson rudely and defiantly. News flash #DACA girl ! In my opinion, it’s Obama‘s fault.
is the one who created DACA as an Executive Order as a TEMPORARY fix with its expiration date, creatively set to expire AFTER his final term ended . So blame Obama as he’s the one who created this problem!
Additionally, your parents came here ILLEGALLY and dragged you along with them , and we have no obligation to pay for your family ! I think #DACADreamers have been treated very well .

Ok so...how is a pathway to citizenship for 1.8m a good thing

This is gonna be long, so strap in 👍

Let's go back to basics

No one policy has caused the overall demographic shift of America

Not possible

We're talking about the culmination of many smaller policies creating an exponential expansion of one specific race. Hispanics

I know what you're thinking...

But let's take a look under the hood and run some scenarios

You might be surprised
1/
What Trump is proposing is a pathway to citizenship for 1.8m dreamers
Which sounds really bad...but he's asking for a lot in return
2/
First off, Schumer made a huge song and dance about offering Trump his wall, then made an equally big show of taking it off the table
