In a stinging rebuke to Barack Obamas lawless actions on immigration, a U.S. Court of Appeals Monday sided with a district court judge, the State of Texas and 25 other states that are suing to stop the executive action that would grant legal status to at least 5 million illegal aliens.
The 5th Circuits upholding of U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanens injunction blocking Obamas DAPA program could delay any further amnesty actions until Obama leaves office a huge blow to the Democrats efforts to get illegal aliens to the voting booth by 2016.
A federal appeals court on Monday agreed to keep on hold President Barack Obamas executive order on immigration.
The divided, 124-page ruling deals a blow to the administrations Deferred Action for Parental Accountability program otherwise known as DAPA and there likely isnt enough time for a formal appeal to the Supreme Court to be resolved ahead of the 2016 election.
The states have sued the federal government claiming that Obamas amnesty would cause irreparable harm and financial loss to their state if the executive action continues. Earlier this year Hanen granted an injunction requested by the 26 states seeking to halt the implementation of Obamas amnesty. They states claimed the damage would have already been caused and even if they won the lawsuit there would be little they could to at that point.
As Top Right News reported, Hanen in April not only refused to lift his order, he also issued a scathing rebuke to Obamas lawyers for misleading him, after the Obama DHS illegally handed out thousands of work permits to illegal aliens in violation of his original order.
Obama appealed that order to the Circuit level, where he lost in a 2-1 vote Monday afternoon.
The Administration and George Soros-funded radical La Raza-linked groups were in a panic all summer as the 5th Circuit delayed its ruling…making the window for appeal before the 2016 election cutoff increasingly unlikely.
With Democrat-run states eliminating voter ID requirements or allowing illegal aliens to obtain drivers licenses, they were poised to add millions of illegals to the voter rolls next year. That plan is now in near-tatters barring unprecedented action by the U.S. Supreme Court.
