The White House called a judge’s decision to temporarily block President Trump‘s ending of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program “outrageous” on Wednesday, hours after the move introduced a new complication to talks on immigration between the administration and Congress.
“We find this decision to be outrageous, especially in light of the President’s successful bipartisan meeting with House and Senate members at the White House on the same day,” White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement.
Trump also tweeted about the decision shortly after the White House statement.
It just shows everyone how broken and unfair our Court System is when the opposing side in a case (such as DACA) always runs to the 9th Circuit and almost always wins before being reversed by higher courts.
