COURT CLAMPS OBAMA’S IMMIGRATION HOPES…”This is a profound personal defeat’ for president”

The Obama administration was handed a blunt courtroom loss on immigration from the U.S. Court of Appeals which found, in essence, the president cannot go forward with his plan to shield five million illegals from deportation – that he has to abide by the same rules and laws as every other American.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit in New Orleans ruled with a two-to-one voice to uphold a lower court’s injunction blocking the White House from going forward with its deferred-action plan – and to make the injunction permanent. The decision, the Washington Post reported, was not exactly surprising. As WND previously reported, Obama had already devised a pre-decision back-up plan that included defying the Fifth Circuit if the panel ruled against him.

But now the block is official and it means more delays for the implementation of some of Obama’s signature immigration plans.

“The president must follow the rule of law, just like everybody else,” said Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, who was leading up the coalition of 26 states suing the Obama administration for its executive action to grant temporary amnesty to millions of illegals.

He went on, the Washington Post reported: “Throughout this process, the Obama administration has aggressively disregarded the constitutional limits on executive power.”

Judge Andrew Napolitano on Fox & Friends said Obama would probably try to downplay the decision, but it was a significant clamp to his executive overreach.

“This is a victory for the rule of law,” Napolitano said. “You want the Congress to write the laws, not the president. … This is as profound personal defeat for [Obama].”
