Dreamers File a Lawsuit to Stop President Trump’s Decision to End DACA
- by Ayden
Dreamers have filed a lawsuit to stop President Trump’s decision to end DACA. The lawsuit also aims to stop the federal government from misusing the personal information Dreamers provided to sign up for DACA. The Dreamers signed up for the program in good faith, and they were promised the information would not be used to deport them. But it appears the government is not listening to the Dreamers’ concerns. The lawsuit will be decided by a federal judge, but it will be crucial to make sure that the president’s decision is overturned.
Attorney General Paxton
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is under fire for a lawsuit he filed to challenge the outcome of the 2020 presidential election. The lawsuit sought to invalidate the results of four battleground states and overturn the outcome. But the Texas Supreme Court dismissed it last month, ruling that the state had no judicially cognizable interest in the case. Meanwhile, election officials say the allegations are unfounded. Regardless of why the state is upset, Paxton’s lawsuit may still be a step towards justice.
Texas argues that HHS’s guidance on gender-affirming care misconstrues the existing federal law. The lawsuit also asserts that the federal government has no authority to regulate the medical profession, set state policies, or even define child abuse in state family courts. It’s time for the Biden Administration to stop forcing its political agenda onto state agencies. However, a federal judge’s ruling may be the only option for states wishing to protect their children.
In his suit against Google, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton accuses the company of violating federal antitrust laws and consumer protection laws. The lawsuit alleges that Google engaged in practices that were false and misleading, and violated the Texas Deceptive Trade Practices–Consumer Protection Act. The state seeks permanent and temporary injunctions and civil monetary penalties for its past misconduct. It will also seek to halt Google from violating state antitrust laws and regulations.
Education Secretary Betsy DeVos
A federal judge recently ruled against Education Secretary Betsy DeVos in a case involving the Obama-era regulations on student loan debt. These regulations were designed to protect federal student loan borrowers from fraudulent for-profit schools. The lawsuit argues that the department erred by delaying the implementation of the regulations. The lawsuit alleges that the department is using erroneous data and exceeding its authority in creating the regulations.
The lawsuit also claims that the Department of Education is violating the CARES Act by not notifying employers to stop garnishing student loan debtors’ wages. In addition, the department hasn’t announced when it will start refunding the wages seized in mid-March. The lawsuit was filed by a New York woman on behalf of 285,000 borrowers. While the lawsuit is based on a single case, it reflects a larger trend.
The suit has the backing of more than a dozen higher education organizations, including two former Department of Education officials. “The lawsuits are necessary because the department failed to push its agenda through Congress,” says Jay Urwitz, the former deputy general counsel for the Education Department under President Obama. A lawsuit against the government requires that it prove that its action was capricious and arbitrary. Nonetheless, the lawsuits also reflect the lack of progress in implementing DeVos’ agenda. In 2016, Sen. Lamar Alexander tried to address the gainful employment problem in the Higher Education Act reauthorization.
A coalition of environmental groups filed a lawsuit against the Environmental Protection Agency over its failure to enforce its regional haze rule. The rule requires the EPA to update its standards every five years to reflect new science and better protect public health. The EPA has not updated its standards for three pollutants since 2013. The Clean Air Act requires the agency to develop health and welfare-based standards for air pollution. These standards take into account the health impacts of certain pollutants on wildlife, vegetation, soil, and climate.
But the EPA has defended its decision. The lawsuit was filed after the EPA exhausted administrative remedies. Its office of Special Counsel and the Merit Systems Protection Board was unable to help Chmielewski because they lack jurisdiction over a political appointee. Chmielewski is an advanced team member for Trump’s 2016 campaign and served as his body man. The lawsuit also details the fact that he was involved in Trump’s presidential campaign. He also worked for the Department of Homeland Security. After joining the EPA in 2017, he was promoted to deputy chief of staff for operations.
In a separate case, the EPA claimed that the current and former owners of the facility violated the PSD program. The lawsuit asked for civil penalties and injunctions against these individuals. The District Court agreed with EPA’s request, finding that allowing these claims to proceed would undermine the Clean Air Act regulatory scheme. If the EPA were unable to pursue historic PSD violations, it would issue information requests for new construction and modification projects.
