Federal Judge Halts Obama's Executive Amnesty Program

Some good news from Texas.

A federal judge in Texas last night temporarily blocked the Obama administration’s executive actions on immigration. The judge, responding to a suit filed by 26 Republican-run states, did not rule on the legality of immigration orders but said there was sufficient merit to the challenge to warrant a suspension while the case goes forward.

No law gave the administration the power “to give 4.3 million removable aliens what the Department of Homeland Security itself labels as ‘legal presence,’” the judge said in a memorandum opinion. “In fact the law mandates that these illegally-present individuals be removed. The Department of Homeland Security “has adopted a new rule that substantially changes both the status and employability of millions.”

But before we start celebrating too much, remember this is just one district court judge going pretty far out on a limb and issuing an injunction (this isn't a final decision on the merits, just a halt to the program while it's litigated). The administration will no doubt appeal to the 5th Circuit to have the injunction lifted and get the amnesty wheels rolling again.

There are plenty of reasons to keep the champagne on ice.

Hanen is not necessarily anything but a mainstream judge, but he is a Bush appointee who, the Times notes, has a record of hawkish immigration opinions. That has no bearing on the logic of his decision, but it might suggest other judges won’t necessarily agree with Hanen’s reasoning.

Whether states even have the right to challenge the president’s action isn’t entirely clear, partly because immigration enforcement is almost exclusively a federal domain. Attorney Ian Smith laid out the states’ case for standing on NRO here. Congressional Republicans have said they’d like to challenge the president’s order in court, too; their case for standing is considered more far-fetched. On the upside, the judge’s decision in Texas grants standing to the states on multiple grounds where they argue they have it, though not all of them.

Relatedly, courts are just pretty deferential when it comes to fights between the other two branches. Hanen’s ruling notes this repeatedly, maintaining that in order for the courts to halt the executive branch, it has to be actively, affirmatively doing something unauthorized, rather than just overstepping its bounds or abdicating its powers.

The immediate question is how does this affect the funding fight in Congress. While some see it as strengthening the anti-amnesty hand (assuming the injunction stands, will Democrats really "shutdown" DHS over a program that isn't going to be implemented this year).

On the other hand, there will no doubt be Republicans who will say, why keep fighting it and risk a backlash if the injunction holds?

One important thing to keep in mind, last night's decision only applies to Obama's recent Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents (DAPA). That's separate from the DACA program which applied to the so-called "dreamers". Unlike the court decision, the House DHS funding bill would also halt the DACA program.

The problem is, no one knows right now if this decision will hold. It could all be moot in a number or hours or days if the 5th Circuit or SCOTUS lifts the injunction.

Even if the injunction is upheld, I think it's important for Congress to fight to preserve it's constitutional powers and use it's power to check an out of control executive. This would be a great opportunity for the GOP to put Obama and the Democrats on the defensive...why are they defending a program that the courts are highly skeptical of?

But it's the GOP, so....yeah.

Prepare to be inspired by the words of your Leader:

House Speaker John Boehner (R-Kirkland Signature) today issued the following statement:

"The president said 22 times he did not have the authority to take the very action on immigration he eventually did, so it is no surprise that at least one court has agreed.

We will continue to follow the case as it moves through the legal process. Hopefully, Senate Democrats who claim to oppose this executive overreach will now let the Senate begin debate on a bill to fund the Homeland Security department."



The active words in that statement? "Follow" and "Hopefully".

I haven't read the decision yet but apparently there is a 60, yes, sixty, page portion devoted to standing.

The Fifth Circuit and SCOTUS are not going to be able to say that the lower court gave scant attention to the issue.

Congress surrenders its powers readily because being a Congressman is an easy job, and being blamed for anything is the fastest way to become an ex-Congressman. They're not going to rock the boat and give up their lucrative careers and ambitions over something as silly as maintaining the balance of power, or listening to constituents.

Because as long as you reserve the power to pay off interest groups, you get to stay on the gravy train.

The interest groups that pay well want amnesty so that's easy money for a Congressman. If you run for re-election, they will fund your campaign...and when you retire they will give you a do-nothing job that pays well.

This points out the need for Glenn Reynold's revolving door tax.

I bet his request went to one of those "czars" that he stuffed into just about every department and bureau. The spoils system and top-down control of the bureaucracy makes Obummer a true Democrat, eh?

85 Racism is alive and well in this country, even in the judiciary. And whenever this racism rears its ugly head to ostracize nefarious swarthy foreigner, conservatives predictably celebrate it as a victory.

Posted by: Mama Revolution at February 17, 2015 09:55 AM (GwNC1)

86 But before we start celebrating too much, remember this is just one district court judge going pretty far out on a limb and issuing an injunction (this isn't a final decision on the merits, just a halt to the program while it's litigated).

True, but it's certainly an encouraging signal that this judge found apparently a reasonable likelihood of success on the merits and irreparable harm if he didn't issue the injunction.

The bigger threat is having other judges in other circuits rule to the contrary, ultimately forcing an inter-circuit inconsistency that the Supremes are asked to rule on.

Like every other major policy in this country, this will likely come down to a 5-4 vote Supreme Court vote.

I know. Interesting the bureaucrats that have reviewed permit applications have done a pretty through job reviewing the applications (at least through 2010 - not sure since) and in the interviews. Not sure how often they referred false statements and such for prosecution or deportation but do know that did pretty decent due diligence.

241 I would be concerned as an agency head about this non-enforcement by no EO. There is not even a fig-leaf to cover the illegality of this inaction, and if the wind changes and the administration flops around like a rag again, the agency head risks being prosecuted or losing a pension or winding up as a greeter at WalMart.

How would you like to be told to do something and then wind up realizing it is expedient to prosecute for misfeasance and malfeasance, and probably non-feasance on top of that.

But for the record, I am not Scandinavian. I am Anglo-Saxon and the elder sisters have traced the family back several hundred years to England. There are, however, some darkly whispered conversations that suggest there may have been some Germans on my Father's side.

I am not one of those dirty skandis who bring lime jello with shredded carrots to the Lutheran potluck. I moved to Finlandia when I retired. Now if you want to rail against those Fins, I'll have to ask, have you ever had one of auntie's pasty?

I suggest this but it depends on the version of HTML that Pixy is using:



Your suggestion would work fine, too. I'm just planning ahead for #TwoWeeks when Pixy upgrades to HTML 4.01.

I'm retired but I forced my former employer (a **very** large one that everyone knows well) to use HTML 5 for their API documentation. I fought very senior management tooth and nail but had the support of developers.

Now, senior management is taking credit for what I forced them to do. No matter, I'm retired, blessed, and happy.
