Obama's executive action was delayed on a procedural technicality. The ruling says nothing about the EO being unconstitutional. The WH is appealing to fifth circuit court in New Orleans. Who knows how long that will take but in the meantime...an extended comment period could still take place (as if a year wasn't long enough) and when the appeal is upheld the EO could be implemented.....unless congress passes immigration reform.United States District Judge Andrew Hanen ruled late Monday night to block executive actions Obama took late last year to shield as many as 5 million undocumented immigrants from deportation. In delaying the ruling, Hanen halted Obama's executive action, ruling that the administration had failed to comply with the Administrative Procedure Act, which calls for the White House to afford a longer notification and comment period before taking action.
No, the Judges decision will not withstand an appeal.
