This would be welcome news if we actually lived under rule of law.


Federal appeals court deals blow to President Obama’s amnesty
By Stephen Dinan - The Washington Times - Updated: 2:39 p.m. on Tuesday, May 26, 2015

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.

GREAT NEWS: Appeals Court to Obama: NO, YOU CANNOT!

By John Lillpop -- May 26, 2015

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!

Obama’s Remedial Legal Education
A federal appeals court rebukes his immigration order.

May 26, 2015 Editorial Board


America’s most powerful former law professor is getting a re-education in the Constitution, and on present course President Obama might flunk out. Witness Tuesday’s federal appeals-court rebuke of his 2014 immigration order, including language that suggests the Administration will also lose on the legal and policy merits.

Mr. Obama caused a furor in November when he suddenly claimed powers he had previously said he didn’t have to award legal status and work permits to millions of illegal immigrants.

@ThirstyMan

It would be wonderful if the optimism pans out.

If history is a guide Obama and his minions will keep on doing what they are doing, and nothing will be done about it.

"But early this month the government’s attorneys admitted that they misled Judge Hanen."

Misled? Isn't that what we used to call "perjury"? Or does it depend on what is, is?

Well, they didn't fool Judge Hanen.

I agree Cincy, it'd be real nice to see someone take these liars to task.

Just once, TM, just once. But I assume charges will be referred to the Obama DOJ where they will die from a lack of interest.
