Fridays can be full of surprises sometimes, and we got one today regarding illegal immigration. A federal judge in Houston ruled that DACA, the long-challenged and debated amnesty program for illegal immigrants brought to the US as children, is illegal.

Yet, as often happens with emotionally charged issues, courts, including the Supreme Court, have tap-danced around the issue instead of saying what everyone knows – that DACA is illegal.

Now, we finally have a judge who has put on record that the program is just that. There are also practical ramifications to this, such as DACA no longer being a magnet (at least until some higher court gets involved) for migrants looking to cross the
