New York and Washington Threaten to Sue Trump for the Termination of DACA-blogged by @thereal__bee ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Attorney generals from both NewYork and Washington have threatened to sue the WhiteHouse amid Trump's decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ABC reports that Attorney Generals Bob Ferguson of Washington and Eric Schneiderman of New York issued statements Monday concerning the matter. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ “Ending this policy represents an assault on the values that built this state and this nation. The president’s action would upend the lives of hundreds of thousands of young people who have only ever called America their home, including roughly 42,000 New Yorkers,” Schneiderman said in a statement along with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo. “It will rip families apart, sow havoc in our communities and force innocent people — our neighbors, our friend, and our relatives — to live in fear.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ “If President Trump follows through on his reported decision to cancel DACA after a six-month delay, the Washington Attorney General’s Office will file suit to halt this cruel and illegal policy and defend DACA recipients,” Ferguson said in his statement. “We have been working closely with legal teams around the country, and we expect to be joined by other states in this action.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ DACA was a program started in 2012 by the Obama administration. The program allows certain unauthorized immigrants who were brought to the U.S. as children, to apply for deferred action on deportation and for work permits. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Ferguson has taken legal action against the Trump administration before. He was one of the first state attorneys general to pursue legal action against the travel ban Trump tried to implement earlier this year.
