Kobach's Legal Challenge to DACA: The Bridge to Nowhere

ImmigrationProf reported last week that Kris Kobach had filed suit on behalf of ICE employees challenging the Obama administration's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. The lawsuit has little chance of success for reasons outlined by Gary Endelmen and Cyrus Mehta on the Insightful Immigration blog.  In my estimation, it is just another Kris Kobach publicity stunt to draw attention to himself and his restrictionist cause.  This one just happened to be on the eve of the Republican National Convention, where a platform including some tough immigration stances will be considered and presumably ratified.  Kobach's political track record has proven to better than his record as a lawyer, with his losses in the courts (Arizona, Hazleton, Fremont, Farmer's Branch, etc.) mounting.
