Federal Judge Urges Trump Administration to Push Back DACA Deadline

Judge Garaufis’ statement was not a court order, but it was a potent hint of his position toward the decision to rescind DACA, a matter that arrived in his court last week when immigration lawyers filed a federal complaint saying that ending the program was an “arbitrary, capricious” move “based upon animus toward Latinos.” The complaint, which revived a prior lawsuit filed in support of DACA last year, was the first legal assault on the program’s repeal. A day after it was filed, a group of 16 Democratic state attorneys general submitted a similar suit opposing the rollback, which has also ended up in front of Judge Garaufis.At the hearing, Judge Garaufis, who was appointed by President Bill Clinton, said that “the ultimate outcome of this case should not be heard by a court of law — it should be handled by the political branches.” But he sternly warned that if Mr. Trump and Congress were unable to reach a solution, he might be compelled to “protect” the 800,000 young immigrants who stand to be affected.Newsletter Sign UpContinue reading the main storyThank you for subscribing.An error has occurred.

G-20 Protests Grip Hamburg, and Dozens Are Hurt

Ms. Merkel hoped to show leaders of G-20 countries where protests are routinely quashed, like Turkey and Russia, how they could be allowed to take place peacefully, in keeping with the country’s Constitution. Though the police tried to keep protesters from setting up camps in public parks, a policy that was challenged in court, many other kinds of demonstrations have been registered and allowed to take place.Continue reading the main story“I know that the political agenda of such summits also have their critics; from the point of view of a democracy, that is a good thing,” Ms. Merkel told Parliament in June. “It goes without saying that such peaceful criticism is protected by the Constitution. But, I stress, it must be peaceful.”Andy Grote, Hamburg’s interior minister, said on Friday, “The police will be able to handle the situation.”Organizers handed out maps showing the planned routes of the two biggest demonstrations — one on Thursday night called “Welcome to Hell,” timed for when leaders would be gathering in the city, and one at the close of the summit meeting on Saturday called “Solidarity for All.” With the organizers anticipating trouble, the maps bore a warning: “Take enough water and a first-aid kit with you — and don’t wear contact lenses,” in case the police used tear gas or pepper spray.PhotoGreenpeace activists displayed a figure of President Trump tearing up a “climate protection” document on Friday.Credit Boris Roessler/DPA, via Agence France-Presse — Getty ImagesThe demonstrations were meant to be peaceful, but some did not stay that way. The police said windows were smashed and dozens of cars and trash cans were set on fire Thursday night, and water cannons and tear gas were used to control unruly crowds.The police and the protest organizers blamed one another for the violence […]
