3:40 am
>> announcer: this is the cbs "overnight news." the trump administration has taken the first step to dismantle the federal program that affects hundreds of thousands of young immigrants who were brought into the country illegally as children. it is called the deferred action for childhood arrivals program, or daca. it is protected about 800,000 young people from deportation, and gave them the ability, to legally work in the united states. well attorney general jeff sessions announced the change. >> i'm here today to announce that the program, known as daca, that was affectuated under obama administration is being rescinded. daca implemented in 2012 and provided a legal status for
3:41 am
recipients for a renewable two year term, worker authorization, and other benefits. including participation in the social security program, to 800,000 mostly adult illegal aliens. the policy was implemented unilaterally. to great controversy. and legal concern. after congress rejected legislative proposals to extend similar benefits to, on numerous occasions, to this same group of illegal aliens. in other words, the executive branch through daca deliberately sought to achieve what the, legislative branch, specifically, refused to authorize on multiple occasions. such an open ended circumvention of immigration laws, was an unconstitutional exercise of authority by the executive branch. the affect of this unilateral executive amnesty, among other things contributed to a surge of
3:42 am
minors at the southern border that yielded terrible humanitarian consequences. it also denied jobs to hundreds of thousand of americans. by allowing those same illegal aliens to take those jobs. we inherited from our founders, and have advanced, an unsurpassed legal heritage. which is the foundation of our freedom, our safety, and our prosperity. as attorney general it is my duty to to ensure the laws of the united states are enforced and that the constitutional order is upheld. no greater good for the overall health and well being of our republic, than preserving and strengthening the impartial rule of law. so, societies where the rule of law is treasured are societies that tend to flourish and succeed. societies where the rule of law is subject to political whims and personal biases, tend to
3:43 am
become societies afflicted by corruption, poverty, and human suffering. to have a lawful system of immigration, that serves the national interest, we cannot have, admit, everyone, who would look to come here. it's just that simple. there is an open, that, would be an open borders policy. and am scan people have rejected that. therefore the nation must set and enforce, a limit on how many immigrants we admit each year. and that means all cannot be accepted. this does not mean they're bad people, or that our nation disrespects or demeans them in any way. it means, we are properly enforcing our laws, as congress has passed them. it is with these principles and duties in mind, and in light of imminent litigation that reviewed the obama administration daca policy. our collective wisdom its that
3:44 am
the policy is vulnerable to the same legal and constitutional challenges that the courts recognized with respect to the dapa program. which was enjoined on a nationwide basis in a decision that was affirmed by the fifth circuit court of appeals. the fifth circuit specifically concluded that daca had not been implemented in a fashion that allowed sufficient discretion and that dapa was foreclosed by congress's careful plan. in other word the immigration law that congress pass foreclosed this possibility of daca. in other word it was inconsistent with the constitution's separation of powers. that decision was affirmed by the supreme court. on an equally, undivided basis. if we were to keep the obama administration's executive amnesty policy, the likeliest
3:45 am
outcome is that it would too, be enjoined just as was dapa. the department of justice has advised the president, and the department of homeland security, that the department of homeland security should begin an orderly, lawful wind down and including the cancellation of the memo that authorized this program. acting secretary has chosen appropriately to initiate a wind down process. this will enable the department of homeland security, to conduct an orderly change, and fulfill the desire of this administration, to create a time period for congress to act. should it so choose. ending the previous administration's disrespect for the legislative process is an important first step. all immigration policies, should serve the interest of the people, of the united states. lawful immigrant, and native born alike. congress should carefully, and
3:46 am
thoughtfully pursue the types of reforms that are right, for the american people. our nation is comprised of good and decent people. who want their government's leaders to fulfill their promises, and advance and immigration policy, that serves the national interests. we are people of compassion and we are people of law. but there is nothing compassionate about the failure to enforce immigration laws. enforcing the law saves lives. protects communities and taxpayers. and prevents human suffering. failure to enforce the laws in the past, has put our nation at risk of crime, violence, and terrorism. the compassionate thing to do is end the lawlessness enforce our laws. and if congress uses to make changes to the laws to do so through the process set forth by our founders. in a way that advances the
3:47 am
interest of the american people. that is what the president promised to do. and has delivered to the american people. under president trump's leadership, this administration, made great progress in the last few months to establishing a lawful and constitutional immigration system. this makes us safer. and more secure. it will further economically the lives of millions struggling. it will enable our country to effectively teach new immigrants about our system, of government, and, and, to assimilate them, to the cultural understandings that the support it. the substantial progress in reducing illegal immigration at our border seen in recent month is almost entirely due to the leadership of president trump,
3:48 am
and his inspired immigration officers. but the problem its not yet solved. and without more action, we could see illegal rise again rather than the, eliminated. there are many powerful interest groups in the country. and every one of them has a constitutional right to advocate their views and, and, represent whomever they choose. but the department of justice does not represent any narrow interest or any subset of the american people. we represent all the american people. and protect the integrity of our constitution. that is our charge. we at the department of justice are proud and honored to work to advance this vision for america. and to do our best, each day to ensure the safety and security of the american people. thank you very much. >> again, attorney general jeff sessions announcing the end of the daca program.
