President Trump’s tweets and campaign statements were raised in a federal appeals court Tuesday as a three-judge panel gathered to hear oral arguments in a case challenging the administration’s decision to end an Obama-era program protecting young immigrants from the threat of deportation.

During the one-hour argument before the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, Judge John Owens noted that the president has made many comments about immigrants that could be applicable to the case, the plaintiffs of which claim the Trump administration acted unlawfully when it attempted to rescind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

“He has said all kinds of things that could be relevant in this litigation,” Owens said. “I know we have to wait for the Supreme Court in the travel ban case maybe to understand how we can fully evaluate his statements on the equal protection [claim], I get that, but doesn’t the secretary answer ultimately to the president?”

The article goes on to state the following:

While cases involving Trump’s DACA rescission are currently weaving through the federal courts, another lawsuit challenging the legality of the program was filed in a federal district court in Texas.

Seven states filed the lawsuit this month and want an end to the 2012 Obama-created program.
