The lie that the federal judiciary is legislating constitutionally from the bench was exposed last Friday, when U.S. District Court Judge John D. Bates ruled that the government must restart the DACA program (“Federal judge orders Trump admin to restart DACA program,” Web, Aug. 3). In his ruling, Judge Bates acknowledged that the Executive Branch had the constitutional authority to reverse the Obama executive order to end the program, but based on a previous order giving the Department of Homeland Security 90 days to provide the rationale for ending it, Judge Bates said the 90 days had expired and the administration’s rationale wasn’t good enough.

Judge Bates, where in the U.S. Constitution does it require the president to prove rationale in repealing an executive order from a prior administration — especially in light of the prior president admitting that he had no constitutional authority to implement the order?

When civil war comes to America, and it is coming, it will be the federal judiciary (including the U.S. Supreme Court), most of the liberal media, corrupt politicians, the deep state and the evil forces of communism masquerading as liberalism that will have fomented it.

Build the wall and give no path to citizenship for anyone who came here illegally. Sic semper tyrannis.
