To the editor: I read of
California Atty. Gen. Xavier Becerra has filed another such suit, again with no mention of cost or benefit to taxpayers. These costly suits are doomed.
Neither UC nor California has any standing because neither is affected by the rollback. The president has asked Congress to enact replacement legislation for DACA. So the suits also are premature, and the issues they present aren't ripe for decision.
The DACA program doesn’t vest any rights in its beneficiaries either.
The Times should oppose this waste of California taxpayers' money.

To the editor: I suggest a program: CPCA, or Citizenship Pathway for Childhood Arrivals.
People who were brought to the United States as children had no choice in the matter. They came to the U.S. with their parents, who were seeking a better life. They came from all over the world, including places wracked by conflict and suffering. It is inhumane to send them out of the only country they have ever known.
A program leading to permanent residency and citizenship must be established for these young people as soon as possible.

To the editor: To be up front, I am a Republican, and I fully support the implementation of DACA as the only just and moral approach to the "Dreamer" dilemma.
But how disingenuous is Napolitano to say she has done so much for the Dreamers when she, as the secretary of Homeland Security in 2012, and Obama took the easy way out by issuing an executive order rather than spending their energy on convincing Congress to pass it into law? This was just one more easy road that the Obama administration took while betting Hillary Clinton would be elected and nothing would change.
Napolitano should at least own up to her own mistake.
