Obama plan to use executive amnesty for a half a million illegal aliens, blocked in 5th Circuit Appeals Court decision

However, don’t get too excited!
It is very likely that the Obama Administration will appeal to the Supreme Court just in time to turn the whole thing into a spectacle in the run-up to the 2016 Presidential election a year from now.
In fact, the 5th Circuit has played right into the hands of the No Borders activists who told a Georgetown audience here, the week before last, that they plan to bring hundreds of thousands of pro-amnesty activists for a massive display of power to the steps of the Supreme Court in the critical months just ahead of the election. If the Appeals Court had delayed a decision by several months, there would not have been time to get the case before the High Court before Obama leaves office.
And, if you are wondering what all this has to do with the legal refugee program, I’ve been mentioning recently that all of those FOR amnesty for illegal aliens are working very closely with the nine federal ‘non-profit’ resettlement contracting agencies in a quest to change America’s demographic make-up. So there is no sense in us keeping the two issues separate any longer.
Here is the Huffington Post on the decision:
A federal appeals court on Monday agreed to keep on hold President Barack Obama’s executive order on immigration — nearly a year after he announced it as a backstop measure to Congress’ failure to enact comprehensive immigration reform.
The divided, 124-page ruling deals a blow to the administration’s Deferred Action for Parental Accountability program, known as DAPA, and there may be just enough time for a formal appeal to the Supreme Court to be resolved ahead of the 2016 election.
In ruling against the government, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit largely agreed with a lower court judge, who in February issued a “nationwide injunction” that effectively stopped DAPA from taking effect, and concurred that Texas and other states that sued the president over the program had legal “standing” to challenge its constitutionality in federal court.
The appeals court accepted Texas’ argument that an expansion of immigration relief to include a wider class of undocumented immigrants would cause the state to “incur significant costs in issuing driver’s licenses to DAPA beneficiaries” — a basic “harm” requirement for any litigant seeking standing to sue.
Based on how the high court accepts and decides cases on appeal, advocates and experts have warned that undue delays from the 5th Circuit would foreclose administration lawyers from appealing the ruling in time before Obama leaves office — which in turn leaves the fate of DAPA in the hands of his White House successor.
But supporters of Obama’s immigration policies said there’s still time for the Supreme Court to get involved.
Let the cheering begin!
They are cheering at La Raza, and at the National Immigration Law Center, and at the US Conference of Catholic Bishops (and at its legal arm CLINIC), and at Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service and at the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society as a big show on the steps of the Supreme Court could advance their mass migration agenda for years to come if it results in assuring a Republican (like Trump) is not the next President. No doubt—immigration will be THE issue of 2016! (This Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals decision has just assured us of that!)
