Updated 11 weeks ago Edited from a Press Release
CHARLESTON — West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey issued the following statement regarding President Trump’s decision to rescind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

 
“I applaud President Trump for having the courage of his convictions to uphold the rule of law and stop this Obama-era program. DACA was unconstitutional and represented an unlawful, unilateral action by the Obama administration.
 
“Changes in law must be made through the legislative process. We will always stand up and defend the rule of law and our Constitution."
 
In light of the President’s announcement, West Virginia, coalition leader Texas and eight other states will no longer pursue litigation regarding this matter.
