Obama Amnesty About to Lose in Court

It would certainly make the immigration legislation fight in the Senate a lot more interesting if a court were to strike down Obama's unconstitutional amnesty right in the middle of the whole damn show. That may be about to happen. Readers will remember that 10 U.S. Immigration and Customs agents filed suit after Obama issued his "deferred deportation" executive order. The suit asked for a restraining order and the trial judge, U.S. District Judge Reed O’Connor in Dallas indicated the I&M agents will prevail. Let's put it this way. A trial judge will not issue a temporary restraining order unless he thinks the plaintiff will prevail.
“The court finds that DHS does not have discretion to refuse to initiate removal proceedings” when the requirements for deportation under a federal statute are met..
“Accordingly, the court hereby defers ruling on the plaintiffs’ application for preliminary injunction until the parties have submitted additional briefing,”
The briefs are to be submitted no later than May 6.
