Dean James III% AMERICA’S FREEDOM FIGHTERS –

Good news patriots! While Obama does have a pen and a phone and an evil desire to destroy America writing his own laws, he has met his match in a little thing we call THE CONSTITUTION!

The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals issued a ruling on Monday evening effectively putting a halt to President Barack Obama’s unconstitutional series of executive actions on amnesty, prohibiting the administration from distributing work documents to illegal immigrants!

“The court’s decision is a vindication for the Rule of Law and the Constitution,” said Texas Governor Abbott in a statement obtained by Breitbart Texas. Abbott initially filed the lawsuit in 2014 duing his final months as Texas’ Attorney General. “The President’s job is to enforce the immigration laws, not rewrite them. President Obama should abandon his lawless executive amnesty program and start enforcing the law today,” Breitbart reported.

According to The New York Times, the three-judge panel of the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, in New Orleans, ruled 2 to 1 against an appeal by the Obama administration, saying a lawsuit brought by 26 states to block Mr. Obama’s actions was likely to succeed at trial.

The ruling is the latest blow to the president’s efforts to circumvent congressional inaction on immigration by using the power of his office to reshape the way immigration laws are enforced.

Writing for the two judges in the majority, Judge Jerry E. Smith found that Texas had established that it was in a strong legal position to bring the lawsuit because it would be harmed by new costs for issuing driver’s licenses to immigrants. He also found that the program would undercut the will of Congress.

“Congress did not intend to make immune from judicial review an agency action that reclassifies millions of illegal aliens in a way that imposes substantial costs on states,” Judge Smith wrote. He rejected the administration’s argument that the program was just an expansion of an immigration enforcement policy intended to make efficient use of limited resources.

Ken Paxton, the Texas attorney general, hailed the ruling in a statement. “Today, the Fifth Circuit asserted that the separation of powers remains the law of the land, and the president must follow the rule of law, just like everybody else,” he said.

“Texas, leading a charge of 26 states, has secured an important victory to put a halt to the president’s lawlessness,” he added.
