The Justice Dept. plans to waste even more tax payer's money by appealing this ruling to the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals.A federal judge in Texas issued an order late Monday temporarily blocking a federal immigration program that would have potentially shielded millions from deportation.
Federal Judge Stalls Obama’s Executive Action on Immigration“This injunction makes it clear that the president is not a law unto himself, and must work with our elected leaders in Congress and satisfy the courts in a fashion our Founding Fathers envisioned,” Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton said in a statement late Monday.
Obama seems more interested in working with despots and others who threaten the USA than he does his own Congress or our allies.
Federal judge temporarily blocks Obama's immigration executive actionA statement by White House press secretary Josh Earnest restated the administration's position that Obama's executive actions were within the bounds of legality.
"The Supreme Court and Congress have made clear that the federal government can set priorities in enforcing our immigration laws-which is exactly what the President did when he announced commonsense policies to help fix our broken immigration system," Earnest said, later adding "The district court's decision wrongly prevents these lawful, commonsense policies from taking effect and the Department of Justice has indicated that it will appeal that decision."
I'm sorry but "commonsense policies to help fix our broken immigration system" is a legislative action constitutionally reserved only to Congress. Maybe the emperor should read/respect Article II, Section 3, Clause 5 "take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed" and Article II, Section 3, Clause 2 "recommend to their consideration such measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient". You'd think he was familiar with these areas of the Constitution.
