5th Circuit Grants Obama Expedited Appeal On His Unconstitutional Executive Amnesty Decree

by The Wall Street Journal
March 25, 2015

A federal appellate court Tuesday agreed to hear an expedited appeal of a ruling by a federal judge in Texas that blocked President Barack Obama’s immigration actions.

Granting the Obama administration’s request for an expedited appeal, the Fifth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals will hold a hearing on April 17 to consider the administration’s challenge to a ruling last month that temporarily blocked it from implementing a sweeping program to defer deportations and grant other benefits for people in the country illegally. The court will consider whether to stay the injunction at the hearing.

In a ruling last month, U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen of Brownsville, Texas, sided with officials from 26 largely Republican states who contend the president overstepped his authority when he took the action in November without congressional approval.

In appellate briefs filed with the Fifth Circuit court in New Orleans, the Obama administration has claimed Judge Hanen’s injunction undermined the federal government’s authority to prioritize which undocumented immigrants to deport.

    Can’t anyone see that Obama is ruining our country. These illegals are just out to get what they can from this government. I’ve seen pictures of these Mexicans giving us the middle finger. Who wants people like that in our country. If this amnesty goes through–God help us.

    1. Andrea S says:

      Are any of you aware that this is not the first President who has given amnesty? Ronald Reagan created a bill in 1986 to allow all immigrants who came to this country before 1982 to stay. Look it up, if you are not afraid to. I cannot believe how American citizens have treated this President. What in the world have so many of you become? You truly frighten me. You have become our own worst enemy. Saying that, I know you love your blinders, just as Rush Limbaugh and Bill O’Reilly and company do. But, believe me, you would be doing yourself a favor by opening your eyes and hearts.

  • Frank says:

    Talk is CHEAP, time for action is now, before our wonderful country is distroyed from within. 2016 presidential election us coming close, so let’s get these A-hole out of office, and elect a president that is for AMERICA!!! GOD BLESS AMERICA

  • Eleanor Ulianna says:

    It use to be that immigrants had to have family, a place to live, & a job, to be allowed in our country!!! Why was Obama allowed to leave millions of illegals into our country, now all we have is over crowded schools, crime, drugs, and we have to pay for all their wants. Now Obama wants to give them blank work permits & green cards. Why didn’t they stay & fight for their country, they need to hang the President of Mexico along with ours! We can’t put up with 2 more years of this azzhole he keeps giving our money to corrupt countries & to all those he left in this country. We need to all & it has to be everybody to stop paying any taxes & then they can start spending their own hidden away millions!. Obama & his other half needs to stop telling us ,what are children should eat, stop trying to brainwash our college students, keep your hands off our flag, our God, & start treating our soldiers decent instead of catering to the muslim’s , Mexicans & other non-americans THIS IS OUR COUNTRY & DON’T EVER FORGET IT! So take them with you & leave!!!!

  • Phil Lawrence says:

    Just a thought but any coincidence having the appeal heard by another brother? You think judge has any balls to follow the Constitution or will he submit to race and ideology.

      Keep your power dry…….just think about your post. Sounds very anti-American to me.

        Anti-American, you say? Not at all. “… Keep your powder dry.” is a very well-known idiom that most Americans recognize to mean: “Be cautious and ready to act when necessary or needed” (It comes from the need, in the days of musket rifles, to prime them with gunpowder which had to be kept dry;wet powder could not be set afire so as to propel the ammo.) The idiom is used in multiple contexts today, from business, social, military, etc. So what do you mean by “Anti-American”?

  • ChuckL says:

    The statement of Article 1, Section 1, of the Constitution is very clear.
    “All legisltive powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and a House of Representatives.”

    Obama as part of the Administrtive branch of the government has no authority to make or change laws.

    Should the Supreme Court find otherwise, all Justices who voted to overturn the ruling of Judge Hanen should be sumarily dismissed.

    1. ItsJo says:

      Let’s just hope that Obama isn’t going before another “Liberal Judge/Court, that goes along with his turning America into a DUMPING GROUND FOR HIS ILLEGAL ALIEN INVASION OF THIS REPUBLIC.” This is Deliberate on Obama’s part, as he is “importing Middle East, African, So. American Illegals in his desire to turn this nation into a 3rd world entity.” With these people being a “burden on taxpayers, he is PUNISHING American’s, as he definitely Hates America and his actions prove it almost DAILY.” Where is Congress on ALL these scandalous, spiteful, hateful actions by this man and his Marxist Agenda?” Are we NOT supposed to be protected as American Citizens by This kind of actions AGAINST US, by our own Congress?”

    2. Fred B. Hetrick Jr. says:

      The fact here is President Obama violated the Law! The Courts duty is clear! All activist judges who legislate from the bench should be impeached, dis-barred and charge with high treason! A judge oath of office is to uphold the very letter of Constitutional laws!

      1. Obama again violates the laws of the united states in his on going attempt to destroy this country . he should be impeached and jailed.

    3. louise says:

      I no longer have faith in the supreme court, this court seems to be all about politics.

      1. Peggy says:

        If you will check the make up of the Supreme Court you will understand why we get so many crazy rulings. No newspapers or conservative forums ever tell you this information. There are only Catholics and Jews on this court. What happened to the diversity that everyone preaches? Where are the Baptists, Methodists, Church of Christ and other evangelicals

  • Instead of, or in addition to, posting here, write to your Senators and demand that they impeach that lying son of a bitch, Obama.

    1. Joy Beck says:

      Keep in mind President Obama refused to take the oath of office with his hand on the Bible. He used his Curan. He may have uttered the words properly, but he is no patriot and almost everything he’s done has been against the American public and the Constitution. I agree. Perhaps the judge would hear the Congress and House of Representatives position on the subject of Impeachment at the same time.

      1. Andrea S says:

        Joy Beck-
        President O’Bama DID NOT USE THE CURAN during his swearing-in ceremony. It appears he used Lincoln’s Bible. He is Christian and attends a Christian Church. Do your research. It appears that each and every one of you posters repost only what you CHOSE to believe. It is people like you our country fears, not Barack O’Bama. I truly cannot believe these blogs. You people live in a deep hole, along with your computers?

  • President Obama should be impeached–NIXON AND CLINTON WERE IMPEACHED FOR PETTY SO CALL CRIMES WHILE THIS USERPHER IN THE WHITE HOUSE IS And illegal citizen and illegal president, and pretends to be a Christian HA !!!

    We the people in the majority rule this country, we gave the Republicians a majority in Congress and the Senate and what did they do throw in with the illegal President who has no respect for the Constitution and leaves our border wide open for illegals. Throw the Illegals out also,

    Why does Obama want Ammesty? Because it make him legal also!!!

    1. Steve Nelson says:

      Nixon wasn’t impeached.

    2. Andrea S says:

      Do your research, Thomas. Nixon was not impeached, but resigned first. None of you bloggers here do your research. Sad, sad. And you do not think George W. should be impeached for leading us into war with Iraq under false pretenses? This to me is an ultimate reason for impeachment. I am sure you have convinced yourself not so, though. Any chance many of you here have a problem with our president’s skin color? And, poor, poor Hillary. Can’t wait to see what you all do with her.

    The “oath bound” ruling progressive majority contemptuously proclaimed the T-Party and others demanding constitutional enforcement are extremist and terrorists… putting them on top level law enforcement and DOJ enemy watch lists! Progressives obviously fear capital crime prosecution for insurrection, rebellion, sabotage, and treason for massive brazen unending violations and obstructing Constitutional enforcement.

    Article 6 and oath/duty equally binds every individual official and their agencies to defend the Constitution with “true faith and allegiance against ANY enemy of the Constitution without any reservation”… in courts where offense occurs (Article 3-2). There is near zero formal top oath bound US official acts to defend, stop, and aggressively punish current massive violations! Obstruction and failure to defend are far more heinous crimes than law violations, because it enables and protects traitors, which indeed overthrows the Constitution! That IS progressives’ “fundamentally change America”!

    The simple solution is enforcing fiduciary oath/duty violations! Treason, insurrection, rebellion, sabotage, fraud, etc, are high crimes that demand swift severe penalties and public scorn (Article 2-1&3 & Article 4-4 & Amendment 14-1/3/4/5)! Never let deception, statutes, or powers of office ever infringe upon supreme law such as Article 1-1 “(legislative powers are invested in Congress)” through Civil Rights Amendments (1) “shall make no law” to final Constitution words! Subpoena chains of command and inter agency acts… bottom up exponentially increases factual evidence beyond imagination!

    Citizens gave died and all for that contractual document! It’s time that those who risk all to betray, desecrate, and overthrow that document pay the same price, publicly, by law, to STOP IT!!

    1. Steve McDonald says:

      Obama is the biggest criminal in this country. He subverts the U. S. Constitution, by passes Congress, implements and changes laws with no authority to do so, and doesn’t give a damn on how it affects the country. The problem is he doesn’t know what it is to be an American. He wasn’t born here (study his so called birth certificate), didn’t grow up here, and doesn’t care about anything about being here. Sorry, he does like being here. He and his other half do get nice vacations and a lot of them with invited relatives and friends. I know a lot of people who work their whole lives and not earn what the tax payers spend on one of OB’s and Michele’s vacations. And the main stream news organizations and DemoRATS give him a pass on everything. God Bless America and those who love it!!!

  • knowURfacts says:

    TODAY, in urban communities, you see grown White men begging for hand-outs (during daytime hours) while Mexican immigrants work to repair those same roads/highways/bridges. On a daily basis, we (myself and a 11 yr old boy) are exposed to these actions!! I refuse to teach more IGNORANCE thru negativity…..knowURfacts

  • James in Texas says:

    It has long been “known” that if you have power, money and contacts, Justice is for sale to the highest bidder! Our Federal courts are stacked with “cronies and Liberals” which allows for the corruption of our Congress and all of the other agencies. This one Federal Judge has taken a stand for “the Law and the Constitution” and the administration has called in all of their “markers” to sell-out the Justice system, one more time, again and again!

    1. Wood says:

      They shopped around until they found a court that will do their dirty work. Either they are liberals or the halfrican administration has something on them !!!

      1. Jack says:

        No….5th Circuit is one of the, if not the, most conservative in the nation. Will agree with the Texas Judge…and Hussein will appeal to the SCOTUS…..be a year or so afore the fight will end. SCOTUS will probably not hear the “white house” appeal…and Jarretts invasion of illegals will end.

  • hedgehog says:

    It has gone on far too long to make changes now Obama has put his kind of judges in the places that he wants them and the rest of them are either being intimated, paid off or running scared Just look at the Supreme Court it is packed with Obama Judges that have been handpicked by him. The only alternative we have now to bodily remove Obama and place him Nancy Pelosi, John Boehner, Harry Reid, Mitch McConnell in Leavenworth for life for Treason but then you are left with Joe Biden which is about the same results.

    ‘the Obama administration has claimed Judge Hanen’s injunction undermined the federal government’s authority to prioritize which to deport.’
    That’s true, now they can’t deport any more Conservative Christians & Jews (as was planned).

  • L.E. Liersner says:

    The Legislative and Judicial Branches of our government have allowed the Obama administration to do as they please for so long, that they have become irrelevant to the law making and law keeping of our country. Judge Hanen stood up for justice, now we will see if injustice will knock him down. Remember, you get the government you vote for!

  • Ken Watkins says:

    We need to march on C and demand that the entire administration resign and then we can buy them a one way ticket to any place except the US.

  • 24volt says:

    Constructively speaking we need to find and use the legal system to remove all of them. Not just the ones we see on the news but all the ones hiding behind closed doors which are writing, publishing, and building this anti-American designed destructive plans against our beautiful country

    It’s a shame they don’t HANG people for Treason anymore. Let All see the Gallows on the White House Lawn, and him Dangling from it

      you got we right—only WE can stop this run away mad dog president–but WE are setting

  • Ralph says:

    this is just a move by the muslim scum judges. why would they fast track Obama when they do not and will not fast track any one else. This is communist trash at work and the people should vote this thing out. anyone making such a move against the law which has already been done should be charged with the murders that already have been committed by theses action which is against our lwa for just such a reason

  • BILL says:

    Just to fire him is not enough for he needs to pay for his crimes against this country.

    1. Andrea S says:

      Oh my…..crimes against his country???? Congress has not allowed this man to do anything. If total gridlock is a sign of things to come, our Great Country is doomed. Bet you all believe he vetoed all kinds of things? How many? Lots and lots? Only two or three. But, that’s not what you all believe, is it? Keep listening to Limbaugh, Beck, and O’Reilly. That will get you absolutely nowhere. Like the saying says, “Misery loves company.”

  • Gerry says:

    First question that comes to mind is — is this judge a libtard demoRAT who is is obama’s pocket ?? If so then his BS ruling should mean nothing. There are way too many liberal kiss azz judges in this country to get fair rulings on anything associated with this fraud of an administration . I agree Phil — deport them all and then start all over with SOME of them coming across LEGALLY. We need to get rid of this fraud of a president, his sheepish party who just follow blindly and the heads of all of our important agencies who are in obummer’s back pocket and UNQUALIFIED for the position obummer put them in. Perfect example, have you listened to the guy obummer pit in as head of the secret service, he doesn’t know anything about what’s happening. I’m waiting for him to say ” I found out about it from Fox News ” parroting someone else we know.

  • Betty says:

    I agree 100% too ! They are destroying our country, while America’s government helps them take over our country.

  • Lois says:

    It’s time to put the brakes on king obie. We the people cannot take the law into our own hands so what makes him think he can? It’s time for him to take a hike!!!

  • Philip Mckee says:

    DEPORT them all, stop the flow, fire Obama, he is worthless need a real president not this joke we have now.

    1. John says:

      I agree 100%! The sooner the better!

  • Gerald says:

    This man has skirted the constitution ever since he’s been in the Whitehouse and there is no one to challenge him. The Dummercraps are to slick for the Republicans. In all my 79 years of life this is probably the biggest farce of a govt. I can remember. Like I always said, Politicians only run for office to get connections. They don’t give a damn about the democratic/republic. I brought this up to a radio station way back in the 1970’s. The ones who get voted out of office or who retire, get jobs as lobbyist for foreign countries. They should have to be out of office for ten years before they can do that. But they’re the ones who to make the laws and we’ll have to wait for a cold day in hell for that to happen.
