The President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) programme turned into a hot election issue according to an advisor to Mitt Romney who launched a lawsuit against these issues. Also Kris Kobach, an advisor to the Romney campaign on immigration have filled a lawsuit against Administration claiming that DACA made it impossible for them to do their jobs.
The Obama’s new decision DACA was introduced last week, allows illegal immigrants to stay away from deportation for two years with work permit.
The DACA programme is not allowing agents to do their jobs and they are duty bound, by federal law, to detain and verify illegal immigrants but federal appointees are restricting them to do so.
They also argue that the DACA programme “unconstitutionally usurps and encroaches upon the legislative powers of Congress.”
The lawsuit claims that laws can be made by Congress in the US. So for political reason President has introduced DACA program to attract votes from the Hispanic community. Many of Undocumented young immigrants belong to Hispanic ethnicity, the Republicans point out.
Mr Kobach told Fox News yesterday that “the Obama administration has ordered federal law enforcement agents to break the law, to ignore the laws that they’re supposed to enforce and, in the case of the ICE officers, to actually break federal laws that say you’re supposed to deport certain people. And in each case, the Obama administration seems to be doing so for political reasons.”
At present, Polling suggests that Obama has more support that is 63% compared to Romney’s Republicans have 28% Hispanic support.

The President Obama’s new administration policy to provide security against deportation faced by undocumented immigrants who entered US as children and stayed in US for 5 years with good academic or military records.
Doebler and nine other ICE agents launched a lawsuit against Obama’s new policy and they argue that this policy made it impossible for them to do their job.
Roy Beck, an advocacy group for more restrictive immigration that is bankrolling the lawsuit told CNN on Friday about goal of lawsuit is to force a court to check whether the new administration policy is legal. Beck also said that we wouldn’t be pleased if it is legal adding, we also strongly believe that President doesn’t have rights to this.
According to Pacheco, the political director of United We Dream Obama’s new policy is a political plan to get more votes in election time.
“I can’t imagine any judge would even give them standing to file the case, much less decide it on the merits,” Toobin, CNN senior legal analyst said. “I am unaware of any law that allows federal employees to challenge the legality of the actions of their superiors.”
According to the lawsuit, Doebler “arrested an alien who was unlawfully present in the United States and issued the alien an NTA (notice to appear), contrary to the general directions of his supervisors that he should decline to issue NTAs to certain illegal aliens.”
Obama made clear that the new policy for undocumented young immigrants was intended to be a temporary step until Congress comes up with new law that considers this situation.
