• Federal Court BLOCKS Obama’s Executive Amnesty

    Another federal court just dealt Obama’s brazenly unconstitutional push for amnesty another huge blow.

    To catch you up to speed, Obama and his administration have been in an intense legal battle with 26 states over an executive order that Obama signed allowing illegal immigrants protection from deportation.

    Obama’s first loss on this amnesty push came back in February when U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen in Brownsville, Texas, issued a temporary injunction which blocked Obama’s plan from taking affect while the lawsuit was still being litigated.

    Today’s decision keeps that hold in place.

    Here’s the gist of Tuesday’s federal ruling from the New York Times

    A federal appeals court on Tuesday denied the Obama administration’s request to lift a hold on the president’s executive actions on immigration, which would have granted protection from deportation as well as work permits to millions of immigrants in the country illegally.

    Two of three judges on a panel of the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, in New Orleans, left in place an injunction by a federal district judge in Brownsville, Tex. The ruling comes in a lawsuit by 26 states against actions President Obama took in November. Many of the initiatives were scheduled to take effect this month.

    The appeals court found that Texas and the other states did have sufficient legal grounds to bring the lawsuit and that the administration had not shown it would be harmed if the injunction remained in the place and the programs were further delayed.

    Interestingly enough, U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen, United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, and a majority of American seem to want Obama’s amnesty blocked.

    When asked if they want to see Obama’s amnesty blocked, 56 percent of Americans said yes:

    The battle over Obama’s amnesty is still being waged in the courts so this story isn’t going away.
