The insanely complex and pointless court war over DACA

These court battles mirror the political ones over the Dreamers all too closely, with each extreme seeking total victory when a compromise is the only possible solution. Problem is, the courts aren’t supposed to play politics — as judges have done by holding up Trump’s order.

Eventually, one or all of the DACA suits will end up before the Supreme Court, which is pretty much guaranteed to end the farce Obama began.

Sadly, the Dreamers’ best hope now is that Congress will do its job once the court games end.
