Appeals court unfriendly to Obama’s illegal immigration move

Wins are few and far between these days. But this one would stall Obama and his latest round of illegals’ reward for stopping by. Looks like the Appeals court wasn’t so friendly. Probably going to the Supremes.

Politico reports:

A federal appeals court signaled Friday that it is unlikely to allow President Barack Obama’s request to go ahead with a new round of relief for illegal immigrants, making it likely that the White House will have to take its legal case to the Supreme Court within days.

The oral arguments before the 5th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals in New Orleans were being closely watched by both sides in the heated immigration debate as a sign of whether the administration will be able to move forward with its plan to grant quasi-legal status and work permits to about 4 million illegal immigrants. Notably, one Republican-appointed judge used the president’s own comments to put the Justice Department on the defensive.

There’s more:

Judge Jennifer Elrod. a Republican appointee, suggested that Obama’s own statements about the program undermined the federal government’s claims that immigration officials retain case-by-case discretion. She referenced a televised town hall meeting in Miami in February when Obama said that there would be consequences for government employees who ignored his directives to grant deferred action to those who are eligible.

    Looks like we might win one here but the question is, will anyone stop Obama if he decides to ignore the ruling?

    Hillary’s job #1 will be to find a way to illegally purge those pesky federal judges who dare to use facts, follow and apply constitutional guidelines in their decision making.
