SCOTUS blocks Obama’s amnesty proposals

In a split decision, the Supreme Court affirmed the ruling of United States. v. Texas, a challenge to Obama’s 2014 amnesty executive actions. The 4-4 decision sends the case back to Federal District Judge Andrew Hanen.. Meanwhile, DAPA and DACA, both Obama constructs, granting legal status to America’s illegal invaders, remain blocked

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott released this statement Thursday, following the Supreme Court’s equally divided decision affirming the 26-state* lawsuit against Barack Obama’s amnesty decrees:

“The action taken by the President was an unauthorized abuse of presidential power that trampled the Constitution, and the Supreme Court rightly denied the President the ability to grant amnesty contrary to immigration laws,” said Governor Abbott. “As the President himself said, he is not a king who can unilaterally change and write immigration laws. Today’s ruling is also a victory for all law-abiding Americans — including the millions of immigrants who came to America following the rule of law.”

Here’s Barack Obama repeatedly stating (video) that he was the President of the United States, not an emperor and was unable to bypass congress and unilaterally impose laws, specifically saying:

“Such an indiscriminate approach would be both unwise and unfair. It would suggest to those thinking about coming here illegally that there would be no repercussions for such a decision, and this could lead to a surge in more illegal immigration. It would also ignore the millions of people around the world who are waiting in line to come here legally. Ultimately, our nation, like all nations, has the right and obligation to control its borders and set laws for residency and citizenship.” 

That was prior to him doing exactly the opposite.

Mark Krikorian, Executive Director of Center for Immigration Studies, does a fine job of analyzing the action in his cogent commentary: “SCOTUS Doesn’t Abolish Separation of Powers – Yet.”

This 2016 Rasmussen Report survey shows over half of American voters believe providing a pathway to citizenship for those in this country illegally will just encourage more illegal immigration. Seventy percent of Republicans — and 51% of all voters — support GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump’s plan to build a wall along the U.S./Mexican border to help stop illegal immigration. Gallup polling indicates nearly one-quarter of American Hispanics do not favor a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants.

* The 25 other states joining Texas in the lawsuit with Obama over his executive amnesty are: 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, Wisconsin.

    Americans are sick to death (as shown above) with illegal immigration and the time spent by government enabling it, never mind the tax money used for it. I think it has gotten worse with the Muslim ‘migrants’ being led into Western countries by their governments.

    Here’s one group that is disappointed in the ruling:
    SCOTUS Immigration Ruling a ‘Huge Disappointment’ Say U.S. Catholic Bishops
    http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2016/06/24/scotus-immigration-ruling-huge-disappointment-say-u-s-catholic-bishops/

    How many Muslims do they expect to sit in Catholic Church pews? What is the reason for their constant pushing of “rich” countries taking in the ‘poor.’ It’s a rhetorical question. They’re Socialists/Communists.

    Immigration is about people applying to enter a country and obeying the laws of that country.

    • Dennis O'Brien says:

      Under the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, the left-leaning pro-amnesty Catholic Church has become corrupt. There is no disputing the Pope is a Communist, who continually advocates for “redistributing wealth” like Marx and Lenin, and chastises America for our successes. He’s more at home with the Communist Castro brothers who destroyed Cuba than he is with any conservative. I was very proud of US Rep. Paul Gosar (a Catholic, by the way) for boycotting the Pope’s address to congress. I wish I lived in his district so I could vote for him.

      The Pope made a great show of taking a single Muslim family into the walled Vatican City. We’ve heard nothing more. I wonder if they’re still there? He is safely ensconced behind high walls but chastises us for wanting to build one of our own. No wonder the church’s membership is steadily declining. Catholics are “on to” him–most in my family included.

    Since Arizona was a party to this Texas case, I checked to see what comment Gov. Doug Ducey made in regard to this split vote. These are his most recent press releases: He’s no Greg Abbott.

    Not a peep about the Supreme Court’s action.

  3. Saguaro Sam says:

    This comes as residents near the Rio Grande are now being openly confronted by groups of illegals who are trying to steal vehicles while US residents are still behind the wheel!

    And in other parts of south Texas, increased reports of Border Patrol vehicles being left and then found to be mysteriously burning.
    Destroying the fields where cattle are meant to graze.

    Here in AZ:
    What’s with Az Attorney General Mark B. entering into an agreement with the AG of Mexico?

    Is it legal for a state AG to have a legal agreement with a foreign entity?

    And this:
    drudge report today reveals that minority births in the US have now surpassed birth rates of whites.

    So, do they still get to keep their “minority” status with all the freebies?

      AZ Attorney General Mark Brnovich was recruited to run by former US Senator Jon (Mc)Kyl and Maricopa County Attorney Bill (Mc)Montgomery. They are all peas in the same (Mc)pod. McCain has tentacles that reach into every major and minor office in the state, by way of his promises and or threats. He now has the son of former congressman John (Mc)Shadegg working for him. Count that as a “promise.”
