Well finally the people get a win against obama’s lawlessness! In a 2-1 decision the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled to uphold the injunction issued by TX Judge Andrew Hanen blocking obama’s ILLEGAL executive amnesty order.
Will this stop obama from violating the Constitution? No, but it officially proves he does not have the authority to make law on his own! The damage he caused can’t be undone though as our border is being invaded right now as you read this. Also keep in mind this is now on its way to the Supreme Court… the same court who ruled we have to buy insurance, it’s okay to kill unborn babies and redefine marriage.
Appeals court rules against Obama immigration plan

NEW ORLEANS – President Obama’s plan to protect from deportation an estimated 5 million people living in the United States illegally suffered another setback Monday in a ruling from a New Orleans-based federal appeals court.
In a 2-1 ruling, the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a Texas-based federal judge’s injunction blocking the administration’s immigration initiative.
Republicans had criticized the plan as an illegal executive overreach when Obama announced it last November. Twenty-six states challenged the plan in court.
The administration argued that the executive branch was within its rights in deciding to defer deportation of selected groups of immigrants, including children who were brought to the U.S. illegally.
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott was praised the ruling.
“President Obama should abandon his lawless executive amnesty program and start enforcing the law today,” Abbott said in a news release.
The ruling further dims prospects of implementation of the executive action before Obama leaves office in 2017. Appeals over the injunction could take months and, depending on how the case unfolds, it could go back to the Texas federal court for more proceedings…more
