It appears that a federal judge has done, what the gutless and/or complicit Speaker of the House John Boehner has repeatedly failed to do, put an end to Obama’s abuse of power and attempts to change immigration law all on his own. Boehner of course has the option to impeach Obama, which he has repeatedly refused to do regardless of the scandal and even regardless of Americans being killed because of Obama’s neglect of duty as happened in Libya.
Imagine how much bad legislation could be stopped if more judges were like this one in Texas.
A Newsmax article reports “Republicans are applauding a federal judge’s ruling temporarily blocking President Barack Obama’s executive action on immigration, saying the ruling underscores assertions that the president acted beyond his authority.”
“A U.S. federal judge on Monday temporarily blocked Obama’s plan to protect millions of undocumented immigrants from deportation, an issue likely to be seized upon in the 2016 presidential campaign….”
“Some 26 states, led by Texas and its Republican governor, Greg Abbott, sued the administration to halt the programs, arguing that Obama’s orders violated constitutional limits on his powers. They requested an injunction to block the programs from going into force while the legal process played out.”
“‘Judge Hanen’s decision rightly stops the president’s overreach in its tracks,’ said Abbott, who took to Twitter to laud the ruling. ‘The president’s attempt to by-pass the will of the American people was successfully checked today.'”
It’s great to defeat the Left and turn Obama into the lame duck president that he so richly deserves to be, but we need to work hard to make sure that the Republicans run a candidate in 2016 who will deport millions of illegal aliens, and stop the Democrat drive to turn America into a Third World country that only elects Marxist radicals like Barack Hussein Obama.
