Federal Appeals Court on Obama’s Immigration Plan – Politics or Law

I was reading an article today about the Fifth Circuit Court of appeals decision to deny the stay requested by the Justice Department. This stay would have allowed a lift on the temporary hold placed on President Obama’s Executive Acton on immigration reform while an appeal is filed against Texas and the 26 states that are joining Texas challenging the legality of this executive action.

Rep. Luis V. Gutiérrez, an Illinois Democrat who sits on the House Subcommittee on Immigration and Border Security, said in an emailed statement: “It is disappointing but not unexpected given the make-up of the Fifth Circuit and the panel hearing this preliminary case.”

A court’s decision is one that is impartial, unbiased and is based on fact. The comments made by Rep. Gutierrez demonstrate the inability of this administration to follow and accept decisions that are based on and support established law. The decision made by the fifth circuit Court was not a defeat, but a victory for our constitutional process!
