Appeals Court Rules Against Obama’s ‘Illegal’ Immigration Plan

NEW ORLEANS –  President Obama’s plan to protect from deportation an estimated 5 million people living in the United States illegally has suffered another setback in court.


As Reported At

In a 2-1 decision, the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans upheld a Texas-based judge’s injunction blocking the Obama administration’s immigration initiative.

Republicans had criticized the plan as an illegal executive overreach when Obama announced it last November. Twenty-six states challenged the plan in court.

The administration argued that the executive branch was within its rights in deciding to defer deportation of selected groups of immigrants.

    He has done virtually NOTHING for the American people. He’s a traitor. Giving aid and comfort to the enemy could be punishable by death.

      And no one in Congress has had the fortitude to start an impeachment on him.

    The fraud and usurper of the white house takes the side of drug cartels and ILLEGAL aliens against law abiding citizens.
    Hey 0bummer; we are damned angry on this issue! NO weasel words, NO “double
    speak”, NO “amnesty” or “guest workers” or “paths to citizenship.” NO $4.2 BILLION, in just one year, to ILLEGALS though tax fraud, NO “dream act”, NO release of thousands of “low level” criminals, and NO ILLEGALS in the military!
    NO federal funding for racist groups like the National Council of La Raza (NCLR).
    DO YOUR JOB for once; seal the border, enact E-Verify, heavily and immediately fine employers of ILLEGALS – ILLEGAL MEANS ILLEGAL; Just plain, NO ILLEGALS.
    Comprehensive Immigration Reform; Easy – In the U.S. ILLEGALLY, GET OUT, NOW, take the family with you.

    Big deal. He’ll just ignore the ruling anyway. And, of course, Congress will do nothing…..again.

      There HAS to be a way to throw his skanky ass out of our country along with Shelly. I think the daughters should have the option of staying here with relatives. BHO himself said that his daughters don’t have any interest in him. Maybe Grandma has her head on straight?
