>>JOINING US NOW, ACTING U.S. CITIZEN SIP CITIZENSSIP CITIZENSHIP IMMIGRATION DIRECTOR KEN CUCCINELLI, GREAT TO HAVE YOU WITH US, YOU ARE VERY MUCH IN FOCUS NOW. LET’S START WITH DACA. YOU HEARD SHANNON AND THE CHIEF JUSTICE HIS HEAD SCRATCHING SORT OF POINT, THAT YOU DON’T HAVE TOWN WIND WHAT IS ILLEGAL — YOU DON’T HAVE TO UNWIND WHAT IS ILLEGAL. THAT IS NOT INCUMBENT ON THE HIGH COURT.>>WELL, I AGREE WITH A LOT OF WHAT SHANNON SAID, I AM MORE OPTIMISTIC AND AS DIRECTOR OF UCIS, IMA CLIENT IN THIS CASE. FOR GOVERNMENT LAWYERS, BECAUSE COURTS ORDERS US TO MAINTAIN THIS PROGRAM UNTIL THE COURT IS OVER, I CAME OUT OF HEARING TODAY OPTIMISTIC. I AGREE WITH SHANNON IS IT SOMETIMES HARD TO PARSE THE SEA LEAVES, — TEA LIVES. I WOULD GO FATHER NEAR I WOULD GO NATHER NEAR I WOULD GO NEAHER NEAR I WOULD GO NEARER NEAR I WOULD GO NEAR T NEAR I WOULD GO NEAR THEEAR I WOULD GO NEAR THE ER I WOULD GO NEAR THE END, JUSTICE BREYER SAYING, YOU ALL — THE PLAINTIFFS HAVE ADMITTED THAT TRUMP ADMINISTRATION CAN WIND DOWN DACA. YOU AGREED TO THAT, NO DISPUTE OF THAT, YOU JUST SAY THEY DIDN’T DO TO THE RIGHT WAY. WHY SHOULD WE PLAY PING-PONG WITH THE AGENCY? MEANING WHY SHOULD WE SEND IT BACK WHEN WE’LL BE BACK AGAIN. AND THEY COULD NOT HAVE BEEN HAPPY TO HAVE HEARD THAT CHALLENGE COMING FROM JUSTICE BREYER. OF ALL PEOPLE. LOU: ONE OF THE LIB — MOST LIBERAL JUSTICES ON THE COURT. FASCINATING TO SEE THIS PARTICULARLY AS WE LOOK AT THESE NEW REPORTS FROM YOUR DEPARTMENT ON. AND THE PRESIDENT LOOKING AT THESE REPORTS AND TALKING WHO ARE THE SO-CALLED DREAMER. I WOULD LIKE TO PUT THAT, IF WE HAVE, THAT FULL SCREEN. TO SHOW THE NUMBER. THIS THAT THESE ARE DACA RECIPIENTS WITH ARREST RECORDS OUT OF MORE THAN 700,000. TALKING ABOUT 53 THOUSAND OF THEM. WITH ARREST RECORDS. THAT IS STUNNING STUFF. YOUR THOUGHTS ABOUT WHAT WE’RE LEARNING ABOUT WHO THESE FOLKS ARE. AND THIS IDEA THAT THEY ARE ALL YOU KNOW, MINORS WITH YOU KNOW, SIMPLE DREAMS AND INNOCENT AS DRIVEN SNOW.>>WELL, LIKE SO MANY OTHER GROUPS OF PEOPLE, YOU TAKE ANYONE THIS LARGE, THIS IS TENS OF THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE COMMITTING CRIMES THAT ANY AMERICAN WOULD THINK ARE SERIOUS. THAT IS A FACTOR HERE. I GET ASKED, WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU ALL WIN, WHAT HAPPENS TO THE DACA RECIPIENTS? WHAT HAPPENS IS THAT TRUMP ADMINISTRATION GETS TO ACTUALLY WIND DOWN THE PROGRAM, THOSE WHO ARE HERE ILLEGALLY AS PRESIDENT OBAMA ACKNOWLEDGED, GET PUT IN TO THE POOL, WITH ALL OF THE OTHER FOLKS HERE ILLEGALLY, THE FOLKS YOU IDENTIFIED, WITH CRIMINAL RECORDS, THEY BECOME PRIORITIES FOR REMOVAL. PEOPLE WITH CRIMINAL RECORDS WILL CONTINUE TO BE A PRIORITY. LOU: AND THE OTHERS I PRESUME GET IN LINE WITH ANYONE ELSE WHO IS HERE, TO APPLY ARE IN FOR CITIZENSHIP.>>THAT IS DIFFICULT WHAT YOU ARE HERE ACKNOWLEDGELY ILLEGALLY. THERE ARE WAYS THAT COULD HAPPEN. BUT THERE ARE MORE EXCEPTION THAN THE RULE, YOU SAW TWO YEARS AGO THIS WAS AN ATTEMPT AT CONGRESSIONAL SOLUTION, THAT FILL APARTMENT AND YOU KNOW WE’LL SEE WHAT HAPPENS HERE, I AM ANXIOUS AS LAWYER TO WIN THIS, I THINK THIS IS IMPORTANT TO SEE THESE KINDS OF LIMITS POUT PUUT PUTT PUTON PRESIDENT AT AUTHORITY, AD PUTON PRESIDENT AT AUTHORITY, AI WORK FOR PRESIDENT TRUMP, BUT I BELIEVE THAT OFFICE OF PRESIDENT SHOULD NOTE BE ABLE TO JUST SIGN A MEMO THE WAY PRESIDENT OBAMA DID TO ESSENTIALLY CREATE NEW LAW. LOU: RIGHT.>>THIS SAY VERY SAD STATE OF PLACE TO BE, CONSTITUTIONALLY SPEAKING. AND PRESIDENT TRUMP THANKFULLY HAS BEEN TRYING TO FIX IT LIKE SO MANY OTHER THINGS, THE COURTS OFTEN GET IN THE WAY, TODAY I HOPE WE SAW ALMOST LAST CHAPTER OF FINISHING OUT THIS ILLEGAL DACA PROGRAM.>>IT WILL BE INTERESTING TO SEE, SHANNON BREAM EARLIER POINTING OUT THAT THIS COMING ALL TO A HEAD RIGHT IN MIDST OF A VERY IMPORTANT ELECTION. AND ALSO GIVING JUST CHIEF JUSTICE ROBERTS THE OPPORTUNITY TO DEMOCRAT WHAT HE SAID BEFORE. THAT THERE ARE NO TRUMP JUDGES AND THERE ARE NO BUSH JUSTICES OR CLINTON
