The United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, based in New Orleans, has blocked President Obama’s illegal amnesty plan.
Yes, sometime the courts still get it right
Specifically, the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans refused an appeal by the Obama administration to overturn a lower federal court order in Brownsville, Texas, which had blocked the illegal amnesty plan that Obama had hatched a year ago.
The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans ruled that Obama’s executive action “is much more than non-enforcement: it would affirmatively confer ‘lawful presence’ and associated benefits on a class of unlawfully present aliens. Though revocable, that change in designation would trigger (as we have already explained) eligibility for federal benefits.”
Legal Immigrants For America (LIFA) applauds the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals judges who saw right through Obama’s shell game and blocked his illegal amnesty plan. While said block is temporary in nature, LIFA also hopes for and expects a permanent block in the future. At the same time, we are quite aware that the Obama administration will continue to appeal this decision right up to the United States Supreme Court, and so we will also wait to see if the U.S. Supreme Court makes a decision to take up this case. If the Supreme Court decides to take the case, then of course LIFA will be there when it happens.
Nonetheless, right now LIFA celebrates the correct decision handed down by the Fifth District Court of Appeals in New Orleans. They did their job to stop illegal amnesty from taking place.
