New York Governor Andrew Cuomo plans on suing President Trump but is not sure what the basis of the case will be.
The governor tweeted about the lawsuit, but we don’t think he understands the real issue here.
New York will not demonize diversity.
We will not stand by as 42,000 NYers are deported.
If President Trump rescinds #DACA, we will sue.

But this one user has the same question as we do.
Kinda curious what you'll sue over. Obama's EO creating DACA was shown legal, so will be another EO amending it.

Even Reuters was confused as to the goal Governor Cuomo is trying to accomplish with a lawsuit.
“New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and the state’s attorney general on Monday vowed to sue President Donald Trump if he scraps a program shielding from deportation immigrants who came to the United States illegally as children…
Cuomo said ‘the president’s action would upend the lives of hundreds of thousands of young people who have only ever called America their home.’ “
Cuomo obviously has not seen the damage the roughly eight hundred thousand illegal kids have left on the American economy. But President Trump is not sending this kids packing immediately. He is giving Congress 6 months to come up with a plan and find an amicable solution. But chances of that making its way through both chambers of Congress are very slim.
Cuomo is trying to sue the president over a signed and fully legal executive order. Cuomo must be insane to think that any judge will take the case based on the lack of legal standing.
Despite the fact I am a lawyer who wants #DACA to remain, this actually made me laugh at the legal nonsense. No Standing. No grounds.
