Federal judge denies White House request for emergency lift of block on immigration order.
U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen, sitting in Brownsville, Texas, rejected the White House request that he lift his own injunction on president’s order by Feb. 25, and is giving a coalition of 26 states that sued to stop the order until next week to respond to the administration’s emergency motion.
Texas Assistant Attorney General Angela Colmenero had filed a letter with the court saying that Texas, and the other 25 states that joined the lawsuit, should have at minimum one week to formulate a challenge to the administration’s request.
The states are asserting that by unilaterally suspending deportation for three years for an estimated 5 million undocumented immigrants – a move that also qualifies them for work permits and federal benefits – the president is violating the constitution and putting an undue burden on states.
The illegals are getting nervous, the .gov is trying to take eyes of this by banning ammo and the like, smoke and mirrors, smoke and mirrors.February 27, 2015 at 5:35 pm #37498
WOW!!!! Great news!! Another win! This is pointing to an Executive Order that was NOT constitutional.February 27, 2015 at 5:45 pm #37499
For a man charged with making sure that the laws are fairly executed, Zero has yet to do this once.
He’d rather make up his own.February 27, 2015 at 5:46 pm #37500
This will now go to the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals which if it goes with O will then be sent to the Supreme Court. This will take time.February 27, 2015 at 5:47 pm #37501
And the entire time, the “order” is blocked.February 27, 2015 at 6:25 pm #37505
That is great that it is blocked. Between the lies and the unconstitutional executive orders I believe the dominoes will slowly fall. Whirlibird you know like any criminal or drug dealer they keep going and in the long run they become careless and make mistakes. O is getting there.February 27, 2015 at 7:40 pm #37512
freedom, I don’t think O is becoming careless. He is becoming more bold and brazen. His actions are coming fast and furious (pun intended) and I suspect they will accelerate in the months to come.February 27, 2015 at 8:46 pm #37518
O will ignore the order. No one will go to the WH and arrest him. I suspect things will start to unravel in many other ways they cannot control. See my post about Arizona.February 27, 2015 at 11:21 pm #37546
74, We will see! The winds are changing and O knows it. The Republicans have to show the public that O has done many criminal acts to go after him. If O knows that the end game in getting close he may do anything to stay out of jail. That is why he has the DHS.February 28, 2015 at 5:10 am #37568

Of course they won’t go there, that would be inappropriate.
He would be called to another location to answer the warrant with his legal council.
This isn’t some DUI suspect, its the most recognizable face in the US. Its not like he can hide anywhere. He will be summoned to appear.
Contrary to popular belief, DHS still has rules to follow, even if they thought them up themselves.
Here’s the problem.
We may suspect that he’s in cahoots with “X”.
But one has to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that he intended to commit these crimes as opposed to the best interests of the US.
And now a billion dollar trial starts. Try and find an impartial jury.
And so he resigns, then we get “boom boom” Biden.
There is no winning this fight.February 28, 2015 at 2:34 pm #37603
Whirli, Biden may not be the brightest bulb on the porch but he isn’t a Muslim and he is an American. Just on those points alone we’d be better off.February 28, 2015 at 3:12 pm #37609
MB both good points, but does he have different handlers?February 28, 2015 at 3:28 pm #37613
Maybe, maybe not, but it is hard to see how we’d be worse off. Nothing is going to happen though. There isn’t anything that O could do that would cause Democrats to support impeachment.February 28, 2015 at 5:44 pm #37619
Glad to see there are still some Federal judges that respect the Constitution . Every little bit helps .February 28, 2015 at 6:30 pm #37620
