The Left is now having to grapple with the possibility that the Supreme Court could allow DACA, a program started by the Obama administration for those in the U.S. illegally, to expire. Politico finds that since the Supreme Court is not dominated by leftists, there is a very real possibility that Congress might have to deal with the issue.
With the Supreme Court’s conservative majority casting serious doubt this week on the future of the Obama-era DACA program, Congress is facing the very real possibility of having the issue dumped on its doorstep https://t.co/k0xkdPkSlY

“Dumped on its doorstep,” says Politico.
Doing its job, says the Constitution.
"Congress may have to legislate" https://t.co/XogtRo0czk

They must have forgotten that some in Congress cannot be disturbed right now while they look for high crimes and misdemeanors.
Imagine the horror of Congress having to deal with a legislative issue. What’s next? Asking them to pass laws? https://t.co/9KGHZhStoX

It's quite amusing how Politico frames this as being bad news to expect Congress to actually do its damned job and legislate.
How dare a legislative issue be ''dumped'' on the brave warriors preoccupied with creating an impeachable crime right now! https://t.co/4399bhkTal

It’s literally the job of Congress to legislate, you blithering morons. They’ve punted on immigration for two decades, and you’re acting
Ike they’re victims. https://t.co/UBC4yxvHKr

The absolute nerve of those founding fathers to create a system that puts such weighty decisions in the hands of elected representatives.
Legislating is their job. And Congress not acting is just as valid of an option as acting. They are under no obligation to make DACA legal. https://t.co/snupRrid8l

Taking up such issues is, quite literally, why Congress exists.
