See story on page 7According to NewsWeek, a federal judge ruled on January 9 that it is illegal for the President of the United States to stop an illegal government program. Judge William Alsup issued the order in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California. Judge Alsup ordered President Donald Trump to continue President Obamas Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. Trump had ordered DACA to end on March 5, 2018. Judge Alsup was appointed by President Bill Clinton. Judge Alsup focused on policy values and not much on legal principles. Such political court opinions, recently out of California, usurping the roles of the president and Congress, are becoming commonplace. DACA was created on June 15, 2012, by thenSecretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano on Obamas orders. Illegal aliens (now adults) who entered the country when they were children were given legal status, work permits, and drivers licenses. The argument is that children cannot be responsible for breaking the law. Curiously, the lawsuit before Judge Alsup was brought by the same Janet Napolitano who created DACA, now as president of the University of California system, but also by many individual illegal aliens. Judge Alsup is a trial judge within the liberal region of the infamous U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. That is, trial-level judges know that they are unlikely to be over-turned by the appeals court in that region. Unless the U.S. Supreme Court gets involved (which is the Supreme Courts discretion), Judge Alsups By Opio Lumumba SokoniOn this 89th birthday of our beloved Dr. King, The Florida Star will publish but a few of his many inspiring quotes. April 4th of this year marks 50 years since his death. We Quotes from King -Cowardice asks the question is it safe? Expediency asks the question is it politic? Vanity asks the question is it popular? But conscience asks the question is it right? And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular; but one must take it because it is right. -One has a moral responsibility to disobey unjust laws. Remembering the genius of a man who changed the world Please see Quotes, page 6 Trump described Haiti and African nations as shithole countries Please see Judge, page 6 President Donald Trump on Thursday referred to Haiti and African nations as shithole countries during a meeting with a bipartisan group of senators at the White House. Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here? Trump said, after being presented with a proposal to restore protections for immigrants from those countries as part of a bipartisan immigration deal. The presidents comments drew swift and bipartisan rebuke while a chorus of Democrats condemned Trump as a racist. We always knew that President Trump doesnt like people from certain countries or people of certain that the president is a racist, said congressman Luis Gutirrez, a Democrat from Illinois.

Bellamy quickly discovered how much he enjoyed making people laugh, and began honing his skills at small comedy clubs around the country and was soon making waves in the New York clubs like The Improv, The Comic Strip, and at The Comedy Store in Los Angeles. Two short years later, Bellamy earned a spot on HBOs DEF COMEDY JAM where he notoriously coined the phrase Booty Call. The now famous late-night rendezvous moniker became the name for Showtime; Booty Call and it was instantly one of the networks top-rated specials.

He debuted in his second comedy special, CRAZY SEXY DIRTY in May 2012; it was one of the highest rated comedy specials of their respective years on Showtime. Bill has appeared on recurring episodes of Tyler Perrys MEET THE BROWNS on TBS and has also gueststarred on ABCs CASTLE, USAs ROYAL PAINS, USAs WHITE COLLAR & TNTs MURDER IN THE FIRST. Previously, Bill hosted four seasons of the TV One comedy competition show WHOS GOT JOKES? and two seasons of NBCs Emmy Nominated LAST COMIC STANDING. In 2015, Bellamy wrapped his sitcom from syndicated television producer Byron Allen, MR. BOX OFFICE. On the show Bellamy starred alongside Jon Lovitz, Tim Meadows, and Vivica J. Fox. In between acting and hosting shows, Bill decided to return to Bellamy debuted in his third Showtime comedy special, LADIES NIGHT OUT in February 2013.

A man cant ride you unless your back is bent. -The true measure of a man is not how he behaves in moments of comfort and convenience but how he stands at times of controversy and challenges. -Hate is just as injurious to the hater as it is to the hated. Like an unchecked cancer, hate corrodes the personality and eats away its vital unity. are rooted in hate. This is why psychiatrists say, Love or perish. Hate is too great a burden to bear. -Let us not seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred. -Another way that you love your enemy is this: When the opportunity presents itself for you to defeat your enemy, that is the time which you must not do it. There will come a time, in many instances, when the person who hates you most, the person who has misused you most, the person who has gossiped about you most, the person who has spread false rumors about you most, there will come a time when you will have an opportunity to defeat that person. It might be in terms of a recommendation for a job; it might be in terms of helping that person to make some move in life. Thats the time you must do it. That is the meaning of love. Let no man pull you so low as to hate him. -Freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed. -That old law about an eye for an eye leaves everybody blind. The time is always right to do the right thing. -Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. -Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into a friend. -We must develop and maintain the capacity to forgive. He who is devoid of the power to forgive is devoid of the power to love. There is some good in the worst of us and some evil in the best of us. When we discover this, we are less prone to hate our enemies. -There can be no deep disappointment where there is not deep love. -He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps to perpetrate it. He who accepts evil without protesting against it is really cooperating with it. -Power without love is reckless and abusive, and love without power is sentimental and anemic. Power at its best is love implementing the demands of justice, and justice at its best is power correcting everything that stands against love. -Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter. -If you lose hope, somehow you lose the vitality that keeps life moving, you lose that courage to be, that quality that helps you go on in spite of it all. And so today I still have a dream. -Any religion that professes to be concerned about the souls of men and is not concerned about the slums that damn them, the economic conditions that strangle them and the social conditions that cripple them is a spiritually moribund religion awaiting burial.QuotesContinued from page 1 order may stand, but in fact is unlikely to. On September 5, 2017, President Donald Trump issued an order ending DACA. Trump noted that DACA is clearly unlawful. Ten states issued an ultimatum that they would sue to invalidate DACA as illegal if Trump did not end it. However, Trump ordered that DACA be phased out over time. DACA requires illegal aliens to renew their legal status every two years. DACA made clear that there is no guarantee that the program will continue and there is no right to expect another two-year renewal. Trump ordered the Department of Homeland Security to simply stop accepting new DACA applications or renewals of existing DACA status on March 5, 2018. So no ones status is being cancelled, just not renewed. An illegal alien holding DACA status will enjoy this limited amnesty for the entire two-year term. None can say they lost anything. Yet Judge Alsup, a leftist judge appointed, you guessed by former President Bill Clinton, ordered that the president must do what the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit ordered he may not do. On February 16, 2015, Judge Andrew Hanen in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas issued a nationwide injunction against DACA as being illegal or even unconstitutional. The Fifth Circuit upheld Judge Hanens injunction. See Texas, et al. v. United States of America, 809 F.3d 134 (5th Cir., November 9, 2015) and 787 F.3d 733 (5th Cir., May 26, 2015). The U.S. Supreme Court Fifth Circuits decision as Furthermore, in this particular case the U.S. Supreme Court has already intervened twice to cut back on Judge Alsups conduct of the case in the last few months. Judge Alsup ruled on Tuesday that President Trump did not comply with the Administrative Procedures Act (APA) in ending DACA, even though the Fifth Circuit ruled that President Obama violated the APA by creating it. So Alsup thinks that a program which is invalid under the APA cannot be stopped without going through the APAs rigorous procedures. Judge Alsup strained to draw a distinction between DAPA (an expansion of DACA to parents) and the original DACA. Alsups core rationale was that DACA and DAPA are different. But in fact they are really not. The legal arguments for both are identical.JudgeContinued from page 1

By Adesina O. Koiki JACKSONVILLE, Fla. Evoking memories of Mark Brunell, the greatest quarterback in team history, Blake Bortles made play after play on Sunday similar to the man who led franchise history before today. Well, at least with his legs, Bortles was Brunell-like. The massive struggles Bortles had throwing the football eventually did not come back to haunt the Jaguars, as he came through time and Jacksonville defeated the Buffalo Bills 10-3 in the AFC Wild Card Game at EverBank Field. Playoffs since the end of the 2007 season. On the day, Bortles ran for 88 yards while only completing 12 passes for 87 yards, becoming the fourth quarterback since 1950 to win a playoff game by having more rushing yards in the game than passing yards. It was ugly, but it was a win at the end of the day, and the Jaguars now will have a rematch with the Pittsburgh Steelers in the Steel City next Sunday. Thats usually not ideal for a quarterback, Bortles said when asked if he envisioned himself having more rushing yards than passing yards in a playoff game. But it is what it is. I kind of felt like last week [in Tennessee], I dont think I ran at all and I felt like we lost without emptying all of our bullets. So I wanted to make sure that whatever happened today, if we were going to get beat or if something bad were to happen, it was going to be with us going down swinging and using every option and everything we could. Jacksonvilles only touchdown and the only touchdown scored in the game was driven by the scrambling ability of Bortles. On that thirdquarter drive, Bortles began it with a nine-yard run, and he also had a run of 10 yards to get the Jaguars in the red zone. Facing a fourth-andgoal from the 1-yard line, Bortles went to the air and found tight end Ben Koyack in the back of the end zone to give the Jaguars a 10-3 lead with 42 seconds remaining in the third. Jaguars defense continued to apply the pressure on the Bills offense, forcing Buffalo to punt three consecutive times after the touchdown. Buffalos last drive ended when cornerback Jalen Ramsey intercepted a pass from Nathan Peterman, who was in after starting quarterback Tyrod Taylor was knocked out of the game with a concussion a few plays prior, with 26 seconds remaining to seal the win for Jacksonville. We had that in our minds that if you give our defense one [touchdown], were going to make the rest happen, Ramsey said. Well put the team on our backs. In what turned out to be a defensive battle, half. Stephen Hauschka capped off an 18-play, play, wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin committed an offensive pass interference penalty on Ramsey in the end zone, effectively ending the Bills best chance at scoring a touchdown in the game. Jacksonville, equally as anemic on offense in right before the half, as Bortles had runs of 20 and 12 yards on the last Jaguars drive of the second quarter to set up Josh Lambos seconds remaining to send the teams into the locker room all square at 3-3. Before being injured, Taylor only completed 17 of his 37 passes for 134 yards, throwing an interception in the second quarter to cornerback Aaron Colvin. Running back LeSean McCoy, who was questionable to play in the game after an ankle injury suffered in the regular 119 total yards for Buffalo, including 75 on the ground. The win for Jacksonville sets up a rematch of a Week 5 matchup in the Divisional Round, as the Jaguars will go back to Pittsburgh to take on the Steelers. Jacksonville came away with a 30-9 victory on Oct. 8, as the defense kept Pittsburgh out of the end zone while quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. Kickoff from Heinz Field is at 1:05 PM EST on Sunday, with the game being televised on CBS. By Adesina O. Koiki LOS ANGELES The story of the Atlanta Falcons run to last years Super Bowl was the stellar play of their nearunstoppable offense, but, on Saturday night, their defense showed that it is more than capable of carrying the team back to the Big Game this season. Atlanta held Los Angeles, the highest-scoring team in the league, to just one touchdown as the Falcons defeated the Rams 26-13 in the NFC Wild playoff victory since the end of the 2002 season. Los Angeles came into the game averaging 29.9 points per game, but Atlantas defense was aggressive all evening in pressing the Rams receivers at the line of scrimmage while limiting the explosive plays of running back and MVP candidate Todd Gurley II, who only had 43 rushing yards quarter touchdown on the ground, Devonta Freeman led a rushing attack that churned out 124 yards as a team. Matt for 218 yards and a touchdown. Our plan [coming] out, we felt like we could crease them in the run game a little bit, Ryan said. Its tough sledding for sure, but we felt like that was our best plan for success and the guys bought into that. We all had that belief and we were very clear about our plan coming into this game and it shook out the way that we wanted it to. Atlanta jumped out to an early 13-0 lead, mostly with the help of Rams special teams mistakes. The Falcons caught the punt following their second drive, as the ball bounced off of the foot of Rams cornerback Blake Countess and the arm of return man Pharoh Cooper before being recovered by the Falcons at the Rams 17. Matt Bryant then converted a points of the game. After Bryant added a 51-yard for a 6-0 Atlanta lead, Cooper fumbled the ensuing kickoff, and Atlanta recovered at the Los Angeles 32. Instead of a the Rams turnover into seven, as two third-down completions from Ryan on the drive set up the ball in from three yards out early in the second quarter 13-point advantage. It was an uncharacteristically poor game from the Rams special teams and from Cooper, who led the league in combined return yards and was named to the Pro Bowl as a return specialist. Pharoh is a great player that and two plays certainly wont done too many good things for that to kind of take away from the body of work that he had, said Rams head coach Sean McVay. But I think were all disappointed with the outcome today. kicked it into gear late in the second quarter, scoring on back-to-back drives to cut the Falcons lead to three going into halftime. Quarterback Jared Goff got the Rams on the board with a 15-yard touchdown pass to Cooper Kupp to make it 13-7 with 2:34 left. Sam Ficken added a \026\030\020\\000DUG\003\300\003HOG\003JRDO\003ZLWK\003WKUHH\003 seconds left in the half to cut Atlantas lead to 13-10. Atlanta started the second half with the ball and proceeded to chew up more than half the third quarter on a 16-10 Falcons lead ended a drive that took 16 plays, went 76 yards and bled 8:15 off the clock. Atlanta sealed the game late in the fourth quarter, as Ryan, while slipping on the slick Memorial Coliseum turf, lobbed an 8-yard pass to the right that was caught by wide receiver Julio Jones that gave Atlanta a 26-13 advantage with 5:48 remaining. The Falcons head east to take on the Philadelphia Eagles next Saturday, with the game kicking off at 4:30 EST and televised on NBC. PAGE 8 THE STAR JANUARY 13, 2018 SPORTS Escape From L.A.

Koiki ATLANTA At multiple times late in the game, it appeared as if Georgia was one play away from sealing since 1980, and the Bulldogs seemed to have made that play, recording a sack in overtime that put Alabamas offense in a deep hole to dig out of. One play later, however, the Crimson Tide became the kings of college football once more. Alabama reserve quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, who came in to start the second half for an ineffective Jalen Hurts, threw a game-ending 41-yard touchdown pass to fellow freshman Devonta Smith one play after a sack knocked them out of the range of a possible Crimson Tide defeated Georgia 26-23 in overtime to win the College Football Playoff national championship game. championship won in the last nine seasons by the Crimson Tide. Georgia, which had not trailed at any point in the game until Blankenship. On the next play, offense in overtime, Tagovailoa was sacked for a 16-yard loss by the combination of Jonathan Ledbetter and Davin Bellamy. The elation from Georgia fans after that sack was replaced with misery on the next play with Tagovailoas pass down the left sideline to a wide-open Smith. when we had to and Alabama did, said second-year Georgia head coach Kirby Smart, an assistant coach of Sabans at Alabama from 2007 to 2015. Give them credit, but I think everybody can see that Georgias going to be a force to be reckoned with. Georgia had one hand on the trophy after it jumped out to 13-0 lead, as another freshman quarterback, the Bulldogs Jake Fromm, was poised in completing a number of thirddown passes to keep drives goals of 41 and 27 yards early in the second quarter to give the Bulldogs a 6-0 lead. Right before halftime, Georgia found its way into the end zone to cap a 69-yard drive, and Mecole Hardmans 1-yard touchdown run with seven half gave the Bulldogs a 13-0 advantage going into halftime. Saban then decided to bench Hurts, who was just 3-of-8 for favor of the Tagovailoa, and the move yielded dividends on the Crimson Tides second drive of the second half; Tagovailoa threw a 6-yard touchdown to Henry Ruggs III with 8:52 left 13-7. Georgias response was immediate, as Fromm connected with Hardman on an 80-yard catch-and-run on the ensuing drive to restore Georgias 13-point lead. Alabama roared back into the game, scoring the last 13 points in regulation, as Andy from 43 and 30 yards to cut Georgias lead to 20-13. The Crimson Tide evened the score with 3:49 remaining in the fourth quarter, as Tagovailoa, on fourth down, completed a 7-yard touchdown pass to Calvin Ridley to tie the game. Pappanastos had a chance to win the game in regulation for Alabama, but missed a 36-yard the fourth quarter, sending the game into overtime.
