Obama halts amnesty push in court, bows to incoming Trump administration

The administration has already taken the first step to accommodate President-elect Trump’s positions, agreeing Friday to take a timeout on President Obama’s push to kick-start his 2014 deportation amnesty.

In documents filed with a federal judge in Texas the Justice Department said that in light of the new management that will take over next year, the case should be suspended.

“Accordingly, the parties respectfully submit that further proceedings on the merits of this case, including the submission of a schedule for resolving the merits, should be stayed until February 20, 2017,” the Justice Department and lawyers for Texas said in a joint request of Judge Andrew S. Hanen.

Judge Hanen had halted Mr. Obama’s expanded amnesty in February 2015, just two days before it was to go into effect, ruling that the administration broke administrative law. An appeals court twice upheld his injunction, as did the Supreme Court, in a 4-4 deadlock decision this summer.

The injunction remains in place while Judge Hanen was to hear full arguments — but both sides now say President-elect Trump should have the chance to weigh in.

    Looks like Obama is being shut down, and told to go back to his safe place, but he’ll try one more dirty trick before he leaves, the MUSLIMS have been WAY to quiet!

    Love it…as Obozo told us after his first election back in 2008, “Election have consequences. I won.” Yeah, right. And as you prepare to make a blessed final exit from the Oval Office, Obozo, be advised that your odious immigration policy is about to be repudiated. Elections have consequences indeed…

    Notice how quiet LaRazza and UniVision have been. The illegals need to violently protest their activist organizations for not preparing them for their exodus. They have had more than a year to prepare so no whining when you all get the boot

    In other words, all those “undocumented immigrants”, a.k.a. “illegal aliens”, pack your bags for a return trip back to your homelands. And your “homeland” sure as sh-t isn’t the United States of America.

        How many people whose name begins with K (like KK, Kimberly) are making a lot of money doing nothing by laying back or eating sausage for a “expensive gift” like a vehicle.
