    ‘Like an idiot I believed that’: Judge blasts DOJ over immigration claims, threatens

    ‘Like an idiot I believed that’: Judge blasts DOJ over immigration claims, threatens sanctions | Fox News

    A federal judge sharply scolded a Justice Department attorney at a hearing on President Obama's immigration executive actions, suggesting that the administration misled him on a key part of the program -- and that he fell for it, "like an idiot."

    The testy court hearing was held Thursday in Texas by U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen. The judge suggested he could order sanctions against the administration if he finds they indeed misrepresented the facts.

    At issue is whether the DOJ misled the judge into believing that a plank of the Obama program -- giving deportation reprieves to thousands of young illegal immigrants brought to the U.S. as children -- would not go forward before he made a ruling on a request to halt it. In fact, federal officials had given more than 108,000 people three-year reprieves before that date and granted them work permits under the program.
    It's hard these days not to believe the administration isn't lying.

    Except judges have authority, maybe he'll nail the lawyers from DoJ for lying to the court for good measure.

    Its pretty much set up to prevent third party participation, it's not super surprising in a system that is toxic to competition.

    Bitching about the Republican Party isn't going to get your people elected.
