Trump Admin Bypasses Lower Courts, Takes DACA Case Directly To Kavanaugh In Bid To Crush Dreamers

The Department of Justice efforts to gut the program started by former President Barack Obama called the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program have been shut down by the Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, But Government attorney Mark B. Stern is now looking to withdraw the case and take it straight to the Supreme Court now that Brett Kavanaugh has been confirmed.

Stern wrote a letter threatening to remove the case if the Ninth Circuit did not rule by Oct. 31 on a challenge to DACA.

Stern’s warning comes as the Supreme Court gained another conservative judge, which switch the balance of the highest court in the country to lean conservative.

“If this court’s decision is not issued promptly,” Stern wrote, “the Supreme Court would not be able to review the decision in the ordinary course until next Term at the earliest.”

“Given the importance to the government of the enforcement of the immigration laws and the issues presented in the case, we respectfully request to resolve the government’s appeal by October 31, 2018,” he added.
