BREAKING: Appeals Court Ruling Shuts Down Obama’s Executive Amnesty For Good!
Chalk one up for our Constitution, for our Founders, and for those who believe in the rule of law!
And while the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals issued a ruling on Monday evening effectively putting a halt to President Barack Obama’s executive amnesty program, rest assured that this Imperial President will use every means necessary to continue his lawless rule.
The Court ruled the lower court did not err in granting a temporary injunction blocking President Obama’s executive amnesty program.
In a brief statement Texas Governor Abbott said; “The court’s decision is a vindication for the Rule of Law and the Constitution.” Texas along with 26 other states that joined the initial lawsuit blocking the administrations attempt to circumvent existing immigration law, by in effect creating law, which is unconstitutional.
The Fifth Circuit held, “Reviewing the district court’s order for abuse of discretion, we affirm the preliminary injunction because the states have standing; they have established a substantial likelihood of success on the merits of their procedural and substantive APA claims; and they have satisfied the other elements required for an injunction.”
“Today, the Fifth Circuit asserted that the separation of powers remains the law of the land, and the president must follow the rule of law, just like everybody else,” Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton said in a statement obtained Monday night by Breitbart Texas. “Throughout this process, the Obama Administration has aggressively disregarded the constitutional limits on executive power, and Texas, leading a charge of 26 states, has secured an important victory to put a halt to the president’s lawlessness.”
Texas was joined in the lawsuit by Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Maine, Michigan, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, West Virginia and Wisconsin.
And while this is indeed good news, make no mistake that this administration will attempt to push blanket amnesty regardless of the court's ruling, in that Obama believes he’s above the rule of law, and has governed with the sole purpose of fundamentally “transforming America” and to that extent he has succeeded.
