On this week’s episode of Versus Trump, Jason and Charlie discuss President Trump’s revocation of the DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) program and a lawsuit filed by several state attorneys general against the revocation. We begin with some background on the DACA program—including a back and forth [at 6:45] on whether DACA was valid in the first place (a subject we revisit later on [at 18:05]). Then we discuss the specifics of Trump’s order [at 8:29], and get right into the lawsuit [at 10:00], which alleges that President Trump violated the Equal Protection [at 12:00] and Due Process [at 23:40]  Clauses (and the Administrative Procedures Act [at 27:00]) when he revoked DACA.

As usual, you can listen online below, and subscribe here with any podcast player or here in iTunes.

And a quick correction—at 26:12, Charlie said that USCIS stands for US Customs and Immigration Services; it’s US Citizenship and Immigration Services.
