Hawaiian judge syndrome

USA Today: "Federal appeals court rules against Trump administration effort to end DACA program."  Check out this stellar legal reasoning:
"In a world where the government can remove only a small percentage of the undocumented noncitizens present in this country in any year," the panel said, DACA lets it "devote much-needed resources to enforcement priorities such as threats to national security, rather than blameless and economically productive young people with clean criminal records."
Oh, is that how it works?  The court acknowledges that the President has wide latitude when it comes to immigration policy unless he wants to decide how to implement that policy.

If you think that's poor legal reasoning, check out the hack who blocked the Keystone XL pipeline. One of the reasons - it didn't adequately assess the impact of 'climate change'.
