Appeals court keeps block on Obama immigration actions

A federal appeals court has rejected President Barack Obama’s effort to move forward with a series of executive actions he announced last year seeking to give quasi-legal status and work permits to millions of illegal immigrants.

The 2-1 ruling from the New Orleans-based 5th Circuit is a defeat for the Obama Administration, but one that may have come just in the nick of time to give the Supreme Court the chance to revive Obama’s attempt to make it easier for many immigrants who entered the U.S. illegally to live and work here.

The timing of the appeals court’s decision had become of increasing concern to the Obama administration and immigrant rights’ groups in recent weeks.

Obama’s latest round of executive actions have been on hold since February and delay in the result of the appeals court’s ruling was raising doubt about whether the Supreme Court would resolve the case in time to allow Obama to move forward with the programs before leaving office.

That’s some world class spin…  The Court rejected the Government’s appeal both on procedure and merits, ruling that the States were likely to prevail in court.

    You mean Obama was right the ump-teen number of times he said he didn’t have the power to single-handedly change the immigration laws – you know, what he said before he tried to single-handedly change the immigration laws.

    Doesn’t matter. The fascist doesn’t recognize the limits that the constitution places on him.

      Exactly what I was thinking.

      Especially after reading this…..

      A former San Francisco police chief and vocal supporter of a sanctuary cities policy, Heather Fong, is on a short list of candidates to become the new chief of the Border Patrol.

          One would hope, but we have disappointed by the opposition before.

    Why must the courts be so racist? If someone can choose what gender they identify with, why can’t Obama choose what form of government he identifies with? Haters.

    I don’t know what the arguments will be before the SCOTUS, but I already know what Ginburg, Kagan, and Soda-My-Oar are going to decide.
