President Obama is eager to see amnesty granted to millions of illegal aliens in the United States. Quite frankly, the Democrat party sees a major influx of potential voters that would swing Texas from being a deep red state into a solid blue state for the party. Capturing Texas would give the Democrat Party a virtual electoral lock on the US presidency. However, the president has been unable to get congress to authorize another amnesty plan.
This led President Obama to “borrow” congressional authority to enact an amnesty plan of his own using what he termed was “executive memos”. The plan was announced in mid-November with a target start date in February. Hours before the plan was to take effect, Federal District Court Judge Andrew S. Hanen issued a lengthy injunction against the plan effectively halting its implementation. The Obama administration appealed the matter to the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals which stunned him by upholding the injunction. A hearing by the full panel will occur on July 10. If, as anticipated, the court upholds the injunction, it may be years before the courts decide on the legality of the Obama amnesty plan.
In response, President Obama admitted that he too is frustrated with the judge’s injunction. The president’s supporters told Huffington Post that Skout members also acknowledge that there is little the president can do at this time. Instead, liberal groups such as the Center for American Progress are focusing their criticism on Judge Hanen.
