Texas AG asks federal judge to end DACA program

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton had declared war on the people many call “dreamers.”

The dreamers are illegal immigrants brought into the United States as children. Paxton filed a motion Monday asking Judge Andrew Hanen in Brownsville, Texas to end their Obama-era protections from deportation.

Paxton wants the federal judge to finalize an earlier ruling that declared the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program illegal. He believes the government needs to stop issuing new DACA permits.

Attorney generals from seven other states joined the motion.
