    District court declares Obama immigration action unconstitutional

    Earlier Tuesday, a federal court in Pennsylvania declared aspects of President Obama’s executive actions on immigration policy unconstitutional.

    According to the opinion by Judge Arthur Schwab, the president’s policy goes “beyond prosecutorial discretion” in that it provides a relatively rigid framework for considering applications for deferred action, thus obviating any meaningful case-by-case determination as prosecutorial discretion requires, and provides substantive rights to applicable individuals. As a consequence, Schwab concluded, the action exceeds the scope of executive authority.
    Yup, this case is going to SCOTUS.

    It's about time Obama was taken to the woodshed over this.

    Interesting.

    I wonder what SCOTUS will do with this. And the other 24 or so cases pending.

    Exceeds the scope of Executive Authority.....and while Abbot says Texas being a border state, can show specific harm.


    Nearly half of U.S. states now suing President Obama over immigration order.....


    Four more states have joined a Texas-led coalition suing the Obama administration over executive action on immigration. The addition of Arkansas, Michigan, North Dakota and Oklahoma brings to 24 the number of states fighting the order in a federal district court in Brownsville.

    Outgoing Attorney General Greg Abbott says Texas is uniquely qualified to sue because its sprawling border with Mexico means it will be especially harmed.....snip~

    What a mess, I suspect things will only get worse.

    The Congress not only has been castrated, they have actually done the operation themselves and sent the amputated portions to the White House for the tender mercies of the Executive Branch.

    Except that it is our country that they have destroyed, they deserve the lack of power they currently bemoan.
    I am not of the mind that a man is either of science or of religion. At his best and his worst, man exists in the misty glimmering where the falling angel meets the rising ape. That he chooses a direction from that point defines him as human.

    Can't they just somehow attach a tax penalty to it? Voila! Then it's constitutional!
