California's Attorney General to Sue Trump Administration Over DACA

California's Attorney General to Sue Trump Administration Over DACA”

California sued the Trump administration Monday over its decision to end a program that gives protection from deportation to young immigrants brought to the United States illegally as children or by parents who overstayed visas.

The action is scheduled to be announced at a late morning event in Sacramento, and a news release from the attorney general's office said that he will appear at the event with several DACA recipients from California.

The federal Regulatory Flexibility Act also requires the government to analyze the effects of a proposed change on small businesses, many of which are owned by, or employ, Dreamers, and to take comments on the proposed change.

But the states' lawsuit says the administration still must follow federal procedural laws if it wants to end the program. The suit further argues that Trump violated due process rights guaranteed by the 5th Amendment.

The lawsuit will be filed in the Northern District of California, and the states of Maryland, Minnesota and ME plan to join the challenge.

Monday's lawsuit differs from a case filed last week by 15 other states and Washington, DC, which had sued Trump in the Eastern District of NY.

But the lawsuit mirrors a suit already filed in NY by 15 states and the District of Columbia.

The suit on Monday shares numerous core claims as the 15 states, Becerra said, but he told reporters his case will focus on more on a 5th Amendment equal protection claim.

He also said Trump's decision would harm the economy in California.

California Attorney General Xavier Becerra filed a lawsuit Monday along with Minnesota, Maryland, and ME against the Trump administration arguing that the government's "actions in rescinding DACA are illegal and seriously harm Plaintiff States' interests in ways that have already started to materialize and that threaten to last for generations".

The termination of DACA directly affects the substantive rights of nearly 800,000 people and indirectly affects millions more, as well as small and large businesses, non-profits, and the towns, cities and states that these individuals call home.

The Los Angeles Times reported that 222,795 DACA recipients, known as DREAMers, live in the state.

In July, Frosh joined 20 attorneys general in sending a letter to President Donald Trump, urging him to maintain and defend DACA. "We have no choice but to fight for them".
