Federal judge stalls Obama’s executive action on immigration
HOUSTON (AP) — A federal judge in South Texas has temporarily blocked President Barack Obama’s executive action on immigration, giving a coalition of 26 states time to pursue a lawsuit that aims to permanently stop the orders.
U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen’s decision late Monday puts on hold Obama’s orders that could spare from deportation as many as five million people who are in the U.S. illegally.
Hanen wrote in a memorandum accompanying his order that the lawsuit should go forward and that without a preliminary injunction the states would “suffer irreparable harm in this case.”
“The genie would be impossible to put back into the bottle,” he wrote, adding that he agreed that legalizing the presence of millions of people is a “virtually irreversible” action. SOURCE
Thank GOD that there’s at least one Federal Judge in the United States that has the best interest of AMERICAN citizens in his heart and mind and isn’t *in the tank* for Obama and his perversion of the United States Constitution.
In a statement early Tuesday, the White House defended the executive orders issued in November as within the president’s legal authority, saying the U.S. Supreme Court and Congress have said federal officials can establish priorities in enforcing immigration laws.
Establishing priorities is one thing, playing fast and loose with the law, and spinning it to suit the desires of Barack Hussein Obama in his effort to work a *blanket amnesty* into place is an entirely different matter.
“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,” the statement said. An appeal would be heard by the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans.
Of course there will be an appeal, there’s always an appeal, and in all probability the decision made by Judge Hanen will be overturned by an Obama supporting court that uses its power to legislate from the bench.
Joaquin Guerra, political director of Texas Organizing Project, called the ruling a “temporary setback.”
“We will continue getting immigrants ready to apply for administrative relief,” he said in a statement. The nonprofit says it promotes social and economic equality for low to moderate income Texans, called the ruling a “temporary setback.”
Sure, it’s merely a *temporary setback* for the AMNESTY crowd, and that is exactly what Joaquin Guerra and Texas Organizing Project are; amnesty supporters that feel they, and their people are above the law.
What these people, including Obama himself, don’t seem to understand is this; very few in the GOP and on the Conservative side of the aisle are against immigration when it’s done correctly and citizenship is earned and not *granted*.
Make no mistake my friends; this is, if overturned on appeal, the gate swinging wide open on the fast lane to American citizenship for illegals.
The coalition of states, led by Texas and made up of mostly conservative states in the South and Midwest, argues that Obama has violated the “Take Care Clause” of the U.S. Constitution, which they say limits the scope of presidential power, and that his executive actions would be difficult to undo once immigrants started to apply for deferred action. They also say Obama’s order would force increased investment in law enforcement, health care and education.
Citizens should be the master of the government, government should not be the master of the citizens.
Barack Hussein Obama is once again going to push HIS agenda and exercise HIS power over the will of the people, and once again, I hold Congress responsible for keeping the *Boy who would be King* in check, not allowing him to *rule* over the people.
I only hope that the people have the courage to stand and once again make Congress aware, painfully aware if necessary, that We, The People are the ones you work for, not Boehner and McConnell, not Obama, Pelosi and Reid, YOU WORK FOR US, and I am going to be evaluating your job performance on an almost daily basis.
Couple MY efforts with those of many other bloggers and political writers and we are indeed a force to be reckoned with.
Congress needs to wake up and realize this; We, The People put them there, not to lord over us but to do OUR bidding. We can remove them just as easily.
