Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary John Kelly admitted that the Obama executive action program known as Deferred Action Against Childhood Arrivals (DACA) might not survive a legal challenge threatened by Texas and ten other states.
Secretary Kelly told members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus that DACA could be in jeopardy if the threatened lawsuit moves forward. Breitbart Texas reported Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton authored a letter to U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions threatening to sue the government if DHS does not phase out the DACA program. Attorneys general from nine other states and the governor of a tenth state joined in signing the letter.

Kelly met with members of the Congressional Hispanic Conference behind closed doors where he delivered the message that the government might not be able to defend the program created under the Obama Administration, the Washington Post reported. DACA put a temporary halt on deporting certain people who were brought to the U.S. illegally by their parents.

The secretary would not take any questions following his meeting. However, DHS spokesman David Lapan told the reporter, “This is what he’s being told by different attorneys, that if it goes to court it might not survive.”

He warned that if Congress fails to pass a bill protecting DACA “they’re leaving it in the hands of the courts to make a decisions.”
