Federal Judge Postpons Obama’s Immigration Policy

A federal judge has decided to temporarily postpone President Obama’s executive action regarding illegal immigration, after 26 states pushed for the decision to be delayed. This move will potentially allow a lawsuit regarding illegal immigration to get through to the courts.

The initial program that would aid children who are illegally brought over to the U.S. is set up to protect these children from deportation. It was also established to protect illegal immigrants who meet certain qualifications. It was supposed to start on Wednesday.

“The genie would be impossible to put back into the bottle,” wrote the U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen after he heard the arguments raised by the preliminary injunction held on Monday in Brownsville, Texas. He believes that legalizing the millions of illegal immigrants in this country would be “virtually irreversible.”

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest in a statement wanted to re-express why the Obama administration is right for their actions by stating, “The Supreme Court and Congress have made clear that the federal government can set priorities in enforcing our immigration laws-which is exactly what the President did when he announced commonsense policies to help fix our broken immigration system,” he then when on to say, The district court’s decision wrongly prevents these lawful, commonsense policies from taking effect and the Department of Justice has indicated that it will appeal that decision.”

Meanwhile those in the coalition who are pushing for the temporary block are led by those in the conservative states and believe that Obama is in violation of the “Take Care Clause,” a part of the U.S. Constitution that limits the potential power of the President.

Congressional Republicans also claimed that they will cut off national spending of the Homeland Security Department, which was given 39.7 billion dollars for the year.
