The good guys finally won one! Well – kind of. We have at least temporarily beaten back the Obama forces of evil – the pro-illegal alien crowd.

To further clarify, we didn’t actually do anything. The supreme Court, with is deadlocked eight current members, did the job for us.

Yesterday, the eight member court failed to muster a majority of votes to rehear the case concerning Obama’s stalled Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) amnesty scheme.

To review, DACA was illegally decreed by Obama in June of 2012. It allows that illegal immigrants who came to the United States as children and meet several guidelines may request consideration of deferred action for a period of two years, subject to renewal. They are also eligible for work authorization. In other words, call it what they will – but it’s ultimately a form of amnesty. read more

Illegals Get to Stay Which Makes ThinkProgress Happy

The ultra-leftist site ThinkProgress is happier today. And why are they happier? Well, once again, liberal open-boarders politics may trump what is right and what is the law.

“A federal appeals court handed down a very brief, two paragraph order  on Monday that represents good news for the tens of thousands of immigrants currently subject to a campaign of intimidation from a trial judge,” they write.

Of course they aren’t talking about “immigrants.” They are referring to illegal aliens who were/are allowed to stay in the U.S. under the President’s also illegal “Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals” (DACA) decree.

It is interesting and infinitely predictable, the metamorphosis of the term – from illegal alien, to illegal immigrant, to undocumented immigrant to now just immigrant, making the law breakers completely indistinguishable from those saps who chose to enter legally and play by the rules.

And what has federal Judge Andrew Hanen of the Southern District of Texas done that was so intimidating and egregious? He insisted that Obama Department of Justice lawyers act ethically in his courtroom and not lie to his face. The nerve of some judges. read more
