Court Once Again Blocks Obama Immigration Plan For Illegals

No worries, I’m sure Team Obama has plans to circumvent this court order

(AP) President Barack Obama’s plan to protect from deportation an estimated 5 million people living in the United States illegally suffered another setback Monday in a ruling from a New Orleans-based federal appeals court.

In a 2-1 decision, the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a Texas-based federal judge’s injunction blocking the administration’s immigration initiative.

Republicans had criticized the plan as an illegal executive overreach when Obama announced it last November. Twenty-six states challenged the plan in court.

The administration argued that the executive branch was within its rights in deciding to defer deportation of selected groups of immigrants, including children who were brought to the U.S. illegally.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott praised the ruling.

“President Obama should abandon his lawless executive amnesty program and start enforcing the law today,” Abbott said in a news release.

Of course, the problem here isn’t just prioritizing deportation of, as Obama constantly calls them, “the worst offenders’….let’s not forget that the illegal who cold-bloodedly murdered Kate Steinle was one of them, who was protected by liberal San Fransisco….it’s that, as Politico notes, giving “quasi-legal status and work permits to millions of illegal immigrants”. Stealth amnesty.

Hey, look, another one of Obama’s “worst offenders

Ramon Jaime Horta was deported from the United States six times, but still the Mexican national was somehow able to come back into the country and is now accused of a hit and run accident that left a man dead.

Horta (who was identified in some other reports as Ramon Horta-Jaime) was arrested this week and charged with killing Marcello Bisarello. Police said Hort did not have a valid license and was under the influence when he struck and killed the man in Santa Ana, then fled the scene.

He has multiple convictions for drug offenses, battery, and others. How did he end up back in the country?
