Remember Federal Judge Andrew Hanen? He just blocked Obama’s illegal amnesty.
As usual, listeners to The Teri O’Brien Show are ahead of the curve. Yesterday, as we predicted here and on the show last year, U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen, blocked Obama’s illegal, unilateral amnesty, which was due to take effect tomorrow. From the Washington Times:
A federal judge late Monday halted President Obama’s deportation amnesty, ruling he overstepped his powers in trying to grant legal status and “benefits and privileges” to millions of illegal immigrants, in a stunning decision that chides the president and throws the White House’s plans into disarray just a day before applications were to be accepted.
The White House said it will appeal Judge Andrew S. Hanen’s decision, but it’s unclear whether the case could reach the circuit court in New Orleans or even the Supreme Court before Wednesday, which is when the Homeland Security Department had planned to begin accepting the first applications under the new amnesty.
“The DHS was not given any ‘discretion by law’ to give 4.3 million removable aliens what the DHS itself labels as ‘legal presence,’ ” Judge Hanen wrote in issuing an injunction. “In fact, the law mandates that these illegally-present individuals be removed. The DHS has adopted a new rule that substantially changes both the status and employability of millions. These changes go beyond mere enforcement or even non-enforcement of this nation’s immigration scheme.”
On the November 30 edition of The Teri O’Brien Show, Obama’s Illegal Alien Invasion Scheme, I told you about the December, 2013 order written by U. S. District Judge Andrew Hanen, in the case U.S. v. Mirtha Veronica Nava-Martinez, a human trafficker who had previously been convicted of food stamp fraud in 2011.
In this case, the subject was the smuggling of a 10 year old child from El Salvador, and in it, he made clear that he is no fan of illegal immigration, or the Obama Regime’s policy of facilitating it. He wrote The criminal conspiracy instigated by Salmeron Santos [the child’s mother] was temporarily interrupted when Nava-Martinez was arrested. Despite this setback, the goal of the conspiracy was successfully completed, thanks to the actions of the United States government. This Court is quite concerned with the apparent policy of the Department of Homeland Security (heinafter “DHS”) of completing the criminal mission of people who are violating the border security of the United States. Customs and Border Patrol stopped the Defendant at the border inspection point. She was arrested, and the child taken into custody. The DHS officials were notified that Salmeron Santos had instigated this illegal conduct. Yet, instead of arresting Salmeron Santos for instigating the conspiracy to violate our border security laws, the DHS delivered the child to her–thus successfully completing the mission of the criminal conspiracy. It did not arrest her. It did not prosecute her. It did not even initiate deportation proceedings for her. This DHS policy is a dangerous course of action.
Keep in mind that, as we noted on the show, Judge Hanen points out that this case was the fourth case with the same set of facts that he had seen in as many weeks, and that this was in December, before the “surprising” surge of “unaccompanied children” from Central America invading our country.
The opinion by Judge Hanen is spot on, exposing the deceit of the Obama Regime, attempting to pass off its issuing of Social Security numbers to illegals as “prosecutorial discretion.” The Dear Reader’s real agenda is to allow illegals to vote for the income redistribution that he admitted he longed for way back in 2001, which will deliver the coupes de grace to “unfair,” racist Amerika, known by you as the country you grew up in. Obama’s dream is that the United States will be the FORMERLY greatest nation on earth, and the importation and legalization of illegals is an important part of the strategy.
Thank you, Judge Hanen, for your wisdom, common sense, and devotion to the rule of law.
