OBAMA “PISTOL WHIPPED” BY THE SUPREME COURT

Obama’s executive order allowing 4 million criminals to stay in the United States was found to be illegal. The court, on a 4 to 4 vote, left in place  the previous court decision which ruled that the parents who came here illegally (anchor baby parents) are persona non grata. In other words they are illegal, gaining entry into the United States by a criminal act.

As of 2015, about 533,000 undocumented immigrants in Texas — roughly 40 percent of the state’s undocumented-immigrant population — had children legally in the country,according to the Washington-based Migration Policy Institute. About 1.17 million undocumented immigrants living in Texas have been in the country for at least five years, including about 222,000 who have lived here for more than 20 years.

Texas and 16 other states initially sued the Obama administration in early December 2014 after the executive action was announced; eight more eventually signed on. Hanen’s decision was upheld twice by the U.S. 5th Circuit Court of Appeals.

“Today’s decision keeps in place what we have maintained from the very start: one person, even a president, cannot unilaterally change the law,” Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton said in a statement. “This is a major setback to President Obama’s attempts to expand executive power, and a victory for those who believe in the separation of powers and the rule of law.”

OBAMA ENTERS THE OCTAGON – WILL HE TAP OUT?

Logo of the Ultimate Fighting Championship.svg Just back from the Far East, our hope is that President Obama enhanced his martial arts skills while there. He most likely will need them soon. He is about to enter the political octagon where the loser suffers irreparable damage – the fights usually go to the finish. Obama picked this fight, one of many during the past six years, but now the odds are heavily stacked against him. Always ready to engage his adversaries, a skill he learned in the South Side of Chicago perhaps will not offer him much protection this time.

With the Senate heavily armed with new members of the Republican bent and the House safely in control of the Elephant, the match appears to be lopsided. One other factor in the GOP’s  favor is the seemingly 5-4 Supreme Court advantage. They may be the ultimate referee of this blood match. Of course, President Obama has an advantage coming into the ring, the executive action technique. But will it have any effect when the House cuts off the purse strings. You can do and say all you want, but without funding nothing will happen. It remains to be seen who is the first to Tap Out.
