The ruling from U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen ordered the government to halt all proceedings with any portion of the Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents, DAPA.

In his order the federal judge said the court found “that at least one plaintiff has satisfied all the necessary elements to maintain a lawsuit and to obtain a temporary injunction.”

“The United States of America, its departments, agencies, officers, agents and employees and Jeh Johnson, secretary of the Department of Homeland Security; R. Gil Kerlikowske, commissioner of United States customs and Border Protection; Ronald D. Vitiello, deputy chief of United States Border Patrol, United States Customs and Border Protection; Thomas S. Winkowski, acting director of United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement; and Leon Rodriguez, director of United States Citizenship and Immigration Services are hereby enjoined from implementing any and all aspects or phases of the Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents … ”

In the ruling, Judge Hanen wrote:

“The ultimate question before the Court is: Do the laws of the United States, including the Constitution, give the Secretary of Homeland Security (DHS) the power to take the action at issue in this case?” The judge laid out three issues to answer in this ruling: “(1) whether the States have standing to bring this case; (2) whether the DHS has the necessary discretion to institute the DAPA (Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents) program; and (3) whether the DAPA program is constitutional, comports with existing laws, and was legally adopted.”

The other states joining Texas in the lawsuit are: Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Maine, Michigan, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, West Virginia, Wisconsin.

The judge said Obama’s program is not only a situation where there are not enough resources, causing program managers to pick and choose which cases to handle. Washington’s current program “is an announced program of non-enforcement of the law that contradicts Congress’ statutory goals.”

“The DHS does have discretion in the manner in which it chooses to fulfill the expressed will of Congress. It cannot, however, enact a program whereby it not only ignores the dictates of Congress, but actively acts to thwart them,” the judge said.

  1. As I have said many times before and I will say it again. “ALL ” points of entry into the USA should have been closed off more than sixty years ago. They most definitely should have been closed after 9-11. In conjunction with this closure all none US citizens should have been rounded up, captured, assets ceased and deported back to their country of origin via a static line parachute low level night drop, but instead Obama allowed to live in the US where they are now going to be given a tax return of up to $2,400 from a system they never paid a dime into plus food stamps and welfare.

    In conjunction with this the border between Mexico and the USA and the US and Canada should have become a DMZ as that between N. Korea and S. Korea and protected in the very same manner with the very same penalty for crossing. Until we do as I have said we are going to be attacked and we are going to lose our country.

    Here’s the bottom line. If you want to be an American that’s fine, but you need to go through the five year process and above all you need to understand this:

    The year is 1907…..but the speaker knew what he was talking about.

    Theodore Roosevelt’s ideas on immigrants and being an AMERICAN in 1907.

    In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin.

    But this is predicated upon the person’s becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American…There can be no divided allegiance here.

    Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn’t an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag…

    We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language… and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.

    Theodore Roosevelt 1907
