    Federal Judge Stalls Obama’s Executive Action on Immigration

    A federal judge in Texas issued an order late Monday temporarily blocking a federal immigration program that would have potentially shielded millions from deportation.
    The Justice Dept. plans to waste even more tax payer's money by appealing this ruling to the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals.

    “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.

    A 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.

    There's certainly a common sense difference between allocating finite resources to faithfully execute the law and announcing that the laws will not be enforced at all. In fact, the lawbreakers would be given amnesty for their crimes and federal resources to make their actions retroactively legal or at least unprosecutable.

    It appears Abbot is more than just a thorn in BO's side.....huh? Naturally Team BO thinks they are in the legal. Although Jooooash, didn't mention anything about the 22 times BO said he didn't have the authority to do what he did.


    "This temporary injunction enjoins the implementation of the DAPA program that awards legal presence and additional benefits to the four million or more individuals potentially covered by the DAOA Memorandum and to the three expansions/additions to the DACA program also contained in the same DAPA Memorandum. It does not enjoin or impair the Secretary's ability to marshal his assets or deploy the resources of the DHS. It does not enjoin the Secretary's ability to set priorities for the DHS. It does not enjoin the previously instituted 2012 DACA program except for the expansions created in the November 20, 2014 DAPA Memorandum." The federal government has been blocked from temporarily implementing both.

    "President Obama abdicted his responsibility to uphold the United States Constitution when he attempted to circumvent the laws passed by Congress via executive fiat, and Judge Hanen's decision rightly stops the president's overreach in its tracks," Abbott said in a statement. "We live in a nation governed by a system of checks and balances, and the president's attempt to by-pass the will of the American people was successfully checked today. The District Court's ruling is very clear -- it prevents the President from implementing the policies in 'any and all aspects.'"....snip~

    : We do not have a broken immigration system. What is broken is the enforcement of our immigration laws! How stupid does Obama think we are? He's starting to believe his own propaganda! These people are illegals who have broken our law, and we should not pander to them just because they shout louder than anyone else! Americans don't like bullies!

    Bound to happen, Obama went too far with executive action.

    Stupid enough to elect him twice. Stupid enough, as a constitutional law professor at Havard, that his encroachment of the Constitution will draw zero response and that the stupid people will just roll their eyes at accusations and go back to "hillbilly handfishing" on TBS. We are an idiocracy.

He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Mornin' OS. Well.....that will hold up the EIC that BO was looking to give out for the last 3 years too.

    They will have to re-do the math now.

    I was going to say the same thing. I can't imagine anyone would be surprised at this. Obama's plan was doomed before he ever got a chance to execute it.

    Those who depend on government to provide for them have no problem voting to continue the handouts. To take that benefit away would mean they would have to show some personal pride and become self reliant, and that is not easy in todays world. It's really nothing more than the 21st century version of slavery for many, and they are the idiocracy who are too stupid to recognize that. This does not apply to the handicapped or those who are sick and truly need the help, but most do not fall in that category.
