Kamala Harris has not enjoyed a good run as vice president.
And there was more bad news on the way.
That is because Kamala Harris just got destroyed in court with this stinging defeat.
Kamala Harris’ job as border czar just got more complicated.
U.S. District Court Judge Andrew Hanen handed down a major ruling halting the Obama-era amnesty program for illegal alien children.
Barack Obama imposed this illegal executive amnesty program before the 2012 election.
Donald Trump tried to stop it, but liberal Chief Justice John Roberts provided the deciding vote that kept it in place.
But Texas and eight other states filed suit claiming the program – that provided work permits for illegal alien children – was unconstitutional.
The administration argued that this amnesty program was no different than other “temporary” executive amnesty programs intended for residents of countries that suffered natural disasters and thus passed constitutional muster.
But Judge Hanen rejected that argument noting that programs applied to immigrants from specific countries and Congress must take action to grant the children of illegal aliens amnesty.
“Given the nine-year history of failed legislation in Congress, it is an inescapable conclusion that DACA is not interstitial to any congressional action,” Hanen ruled. “Although Congress may someday enact such a DREAM Act, until it does, its continued failure to pass bills coextensive with the DACA population evinces a rejection of this policy.”
Judge Hanen ruled that the amnesty program was so ingrained in American life that this ruling would not retroactively yank away the amnesty from current recipients.
“Hundreds of thousands of individual DACA recipients, along with their employers, states, and loved ones, have come to rely on the DACA program,” Hanen wrote. “Given those interests, it is not equitable for a government program that has engendered such a significant reliance to terminate suddenly. This consideration, along with the government’s assertion that it is ready and willing to try to remedy the legal defects of the DACA program indicates that equity will not be served by a complete and immediate cessation of DACA.”
This ruling came on the same day Customs and Border Protection reported intercepting 188,000 illegal aliens at the border, which was the greatest number in more than 20 years and a 471 percent increase from June 2020.
Republicans argue the Biden administration’s border crisis is spiraling out of control.
“Instead of trampling on the First Amendment to address the pandemic, the Biden Administration should secure the border. Hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants are crossing because of Biden’s failed policies,” Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton posted on social media.
Kamala Harris was supposed to oversee solving the root causes of illegal immigration.
But now Harris just got dealt a two-pronged political disaster.
Joe Biden throwing open the borders inducted a deluge of illegal aliens to enter the country, over one million have so far this year.
Biden and Harris initially hoped to leverage Judge Hanen’s decision to block new amnesty permits for the children of illegal aliens into cornering pro-amnesty Republicans into striking a deal to grant citizenship to illegal alien children.
But the sheer failure of Harris to control and secure the border scuttled that idea.
