Marc Short: Judge's Decision Blocking Trump DACA Action Will Be Overruled

A federal court judge's ruling blocking the Trump administration's decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program will overruled in higher courts, just like other similar rulings against President Donald Trump have been, White House Director of Legislative Affairs Marc Short said Wednesday.

"Let's keep in mind a couple of things that the circuit courts have already ruled [Barack] Obama's decision was unconstitutional, and they were taking action because Congress didn't act," Short told Fox Business' Maria Bartiromo on the "Mornings With Maria" program. 

"The ninth circuit you know is consumed of left-wing judges in San Francisco," Short continued. "They have overruled in higher courts just like they were with the travel ban, we expect the same scenario, we will continue to move forward and look for a solution and a legislative fix to DACA."

On Tuesday, U.S. District Judge William Alsup granted a request by California and other plaintiffs to prevent Trump from ending the DACA program while their lawsuits play out in court.

Lawyers in favor of DACA clearly demonstrated that the young immigrants "were likely to suffer serious, irreparable harm" without court action, said Alsup, who added that the lawyers have a strong chance of succeeding at trial.

"I think this would be appealed and [we will] continue to move forward in trying to find a legislative solution to the problem," said Short. "Let's keep in mind chain migration and Visa lottery.

"The two incidents we faced in New York which a terrorist ran over five individuals and killed them, he came here via chain migration … it is time that we end those programs for the safety of Americans, It is also time that we secure our border."

Democrats have already voted several times to build a border wall, but now are opposing the move "because Donald Trump is president," Short claimed. "This isn't about politics, it's time to leave politics aside."

Trump, during a White House meeting with lawmakers about immigration on Tuesday, said he'd sign legislation on DACA, but Short said there are several things the Trump administration wants in return.

"I think we have been very clear about several things that we want with the DACA deal that are necessary," he said. "One is border security, first and foremost. We want to end chain migration and the Visa lottery program, those are three requisites that we need to solve the DACA program."

Meanwhile, there is "no reason" the government should shut down over DACA, said Short.

"A budget should have been in place four months ago to fund the government," said Short, who said he is "confident" a deal will be reached on DACA.

"We are now in January and the Democrats' position has been that we are not going to fund the troops, we are not going to fund the national security needs of the country, we are not going fund all the federal workers until we get a DACA solution," said Short.

"There's no reason why those two issues need to be tied together."
