Biden’s Executive Order on Keystone XL in Jeopardy Because of…DACA?

Wouldn’t that drive the liberals bananas?

This Legal Hurdle Could Trip Up Biden’s Cancellation of Keystone Pipeline (dailysignal.com)

President Barack Obama’s executive action, which allowed illegal immigrants brought to the United States as minors to  stay legally under certain circumstances, created an expectation among people in the country. Thus, if the U.S. government wanted to scrap the DACA policy, it would have to go through an administrative procedure.

This created a “reliance interest” in the policy, the majority opinion by Chief Justice John Roberts said.

TC Energy and the Canadian government likely also would have a reliance interest, said Canaparo, who has been researching potential legal avenues for the pipeline case:

In DHS v. Regents, the court found that Trump couldn’t rescind DACA even though it was an executive action, because there was a reliance interest. That could be a stumbling block for Biden with regard to the Keystone pipeline. … The administration did not consider any reliance interest.

I might not be able to get to sleep tonight from giggling.
