  • Obama's Immigration Policy in Trouble

    A federal appeals court dealt a potentially fatal blow Monday to President Obama's immigration plan, leaving more than 4 million undocumented immigrants in legal limbo and setting up a possible Supreme Court battle at the sunset of his administration.

    The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit upheld a challenge to the deferred deportation program brought by Texas and 25 other states with Republican governors, who argued that Obama lacked the authority to protect about one-third of the nation's undocumented immigrants by executive fiat.

    The authority that the administration claimed, the court said in a 2-1 ruling, would allow it "to grant lawful presence and work authorization to any illegal alien in the United States."

    The White House said in a statement that it strongly disagreed with the court and that the departments of Justice and Homeland Security will review the ruling to determine the "next steps" in the case.

    "The Supreme Court and Congress have made clear that the federal government can set priorities in enforcing our immigration laws," the statement read. "This lawsuit is preventing people who have been part of our communities for years from working on the books, contributing to our economy by paying taxes on that work, and being held accountable."

    The first to state his case seems right until another comes and cross-examines him.

    Rather it would be in trouble if Obama had any respect for the law. Plus if this thing percolates up to the Supreme Court, which has shown a tremendous desire to protect and promote Obama's agenda, then Obama will be set.

      Hopefully, that will take a while.

        Another liberal accidentally tells the truth - then apologizes for it....

        Boulder, Colorado (CNN)Hillary Clinton said Tuesday that her use of the term "illegal immigrant" at a town hall in New Hampshire earlier this month was a "poor choice of words."

        She KNOWS that "illegal alien" is a proper term, but also knows she can't say it in public.

          Well, "wetback" hits the nail on the head, but I thought that was unacceptable NOW. (Like 1957, it was called "Operation Wetback" under Eisenhower.)

            For those who may not know the origin of this term, it was because illegals from Central America and Mexico would swim or wade across the Rio Grande into Texas from Mexico. And, yeah, it's a term we don't use unless somebody is being derogatory.
