In yet another devastating blow to Barack Obama’s unlawful attempt to use his phone and pen to circumvent the US Constitution, an Appeals court has upheld an injunction against Executive Orders issued by Obama to implement unilateral amnesty for millions of illegal aliens.
This great news for America was as reported:
A federal appeals court upheld an injunction against President Obama’s new deportation in a ruling Tuesday that marks the second major legal setback for an administration that had insisted its actions were legal.
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit ruled in favor of Texas, which had sued to stop the amnesty, on all key points, finding that Mr. Obama’s amnesty likely broke the law governing how big policies are to be written.
“The public interest favors maintenance of the injunction,” the judges wrote in the majority opinion.
Mr. Obama had acted in November to try to grant tentative legal status and work permits to as many as 5 million illegal immigrants, saying he was tired of waiting for Congress to act.”
After a long period in which it appeared that tyranny and lawlessness were the new norm, good sense has finally prevailed.
Given the great news, Mr. Obama should retire his pen and phone act and instead start obeying the law. Start by making deportation of America’s 11-30 million illegals a national priority!
