Obama thinks he can get away with anything. Think again, O-Bummer!
Obama has been trying to reform immigration in a last ditch attempt to prove his relevancy as a president. I don’t think that this will make up for his shortcomings in the last 8 years, but he’s apparently trying. Immigration reform has been a hot button topic ever since the 2016 presidential race started. Obama has been trying to force states to accept and welcome immigrants from around the world and the states have been having none of it
Now it seems that the states could have a major victory on their hands in the near future.
The Supreme Court on Monday will hear a case, U.S. v. Texas, that could significantly rein in President Obama’s ambitious – and unilateral – immigration amnesty goals via a states’ challenge to his Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents, or DAPA, program.DAPA, which has been held up from implementation, would allow certain categories of illegal immigrants to stay in America to work, so long as they have already been in-country for at least five years and have maintained a criminal-free record.
Texas and several other states launched a lawsuit to halt the plan from taking effect, and shortly after, a federal district judge in Texas and a panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit found in favor for the states – that the White House could not implement its program.The Washington Post reported the Supreme Court, while accepting the case in January, added a bit of constitutional concern to address – specifically, whether Obama’s executive actions violated the Take Care Clause, requiring the president of the United States to “take care that the laws be faithfully executed.”
