As we get ready to find out exactly what the Trump administration has planned for DACA — we’re hearing the president will kick the can down the road for 6 months — here’s a great thread to read from lawyer Eric Columbus who worked for team Obama on DACA. It’s long, but the money quote comes in No. 7 where he admits that a court challenge to DACA “is very likely to succeed.” Which, of course, means DACA is probably unconstitutional and that this fight was coming no matter who was president.

Also read from 27 on down where Columbus explains what the states who want to sue to end DACA are actually asking for. In short, it’s not mass deportations.
