Obama Administration to Supreme Court on DAPA (amnesty for parents)

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 11, 2015

We told you yesterday that a decision by the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals to stop a portion of Obama’s amnesty would actually be welcomed by the NO Borders lobby as they see it as an opportunity!

Remember the famous line:  “Never let a good crisis go to waste!”

Marielena Hincapie

“This is the moment we have been waiting for.”

If the Supreme Court accommodates the Leftist community organizers like Marielena Hincapié there will be a major battle on the steps of the Supreme Court early next summer just in time for the Presidential convention campaign kick-offs.

For those of you in the immigration restriction movement, better plan next summer’s vacation around a trip to Washington especially if Donald Trump is the Republican nominee (the No Borders agitators say they will bring out hundreds of thousands)

Here the New York Times spells it out:

WASHINGTON — President Obama will ask the Supreme Court to clear the way for his far-reaching overhaul of the nation’s immigration system, administration lawyers said Tuesday, setting up a battle in the nation’s highest court over whether nearly five million undocumented immigrants can legally live and work in the United States.

A year after the president asserted the power of his office to provide work permits and protection from deportation for those immigrants, his plan remains under assault by conservatives who have tied it up in legal limbo. On Monday, a federal appeals court said the president had exceeded his authority.

If the Supreme Court agrees to hear the president’s case during the current term, a ruling could come by next summer, just days before the two political parties hold their nominating conventions for the 2016 presidential campaign. A June decision could ensure a fierce debate on an issue that is critical to partisans on both sides.

“This is the moment that we, along with millions of families, have been waiting for,” said Marielena Hincapié, the executive director of the National Immigration Law Center. “We are more than ready to take this case to the Supreme Court.”

Continue reading here.

And, pray that the Supreme Court drags its feet and does not play politics by giving them the organizing opportunity they so greatly desire.

Just so you know, Hincapie’ bragged about her connections with the press at the Georgetown event we attended.  I’ll have to watch the tape, but I think she specifically said the NYT.

  2. I hope the Supreme Court denies the case letting the ruling stand, DAPA dead. Really, the case is quite clear so I am not sure what would be considered unresolved and requiring Supreme Court review.


  3. I am not a Constitutional Lawyer by any means, but I read on The Last Resort web page yesterday this info:

    “The DOJ can appeal the upholding decision (the 5th CCA retaining the Hanen injunction) two ways: #1 to the Supreme Court Justice who is assigned to the 5th CCA. However, that Supreme Court Judge is Anthony Scalia so that avenue would be unfavorable and therefore unlikely. Or, #2) by asking the full panel of the 5th Circuit to hear their appeal again. This takes a long time, and therefore, again, unlikely.

    In essence the most probable ‘Next Step’ is the DOJ having to accept the injunction and argue the underlying court case while the executive action remains blocked.”

    Here is the link to the story….(

    If the Satan’s Son has decided to take this to the Supreme Court, then they must feel that they can get Scalia to agree to hear the case. Hopefully the Supreme Court decides to not even hear the case.

      Thanks Brian, I really don’t know how this works, am just reporting what the No borders activists are gleeful about. I did see somewhere that 4 Justices could agree to hear it and that would be enough to get it heard? If you hear more, please keep us posted.
