DHS Head Vows That “Unlawful” DACA Will Be Ended

CBS News reports:

Acting Secretary of Homeland Security Chad Wolf today stressed that the Trump administration believes DACA is unlawful and that DHS has the ability to unwind the program. “What they didn’t like was the rationale and the way in which we proposed to do that,” he said of the Supreme Court.

Wolf accused the Obama administration of creating DACA “out of thin air” without providing enough time for the American people to weigh in “on such a monumental decision.”

“I don’t have the luxury of ignoring the law and running a program that’s unlawful,” he said. “So what the president has been very clear about is asking Congress to find a solution for these individuals. Congress is the appropriate entity to do that, not the executive branch.”
