Yesterday, we reported that the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals had denied Obama’s request to lift the injunction put in place earlier this year to block his executive amnesty plan.
According to Conservative Tribune, Obama has now admitted defeat and announced that he will not be taking the case to the Supreme Court. Unfortunately, however, the president is not giving up altogether.
“The department believes the best way to achieve this goal is to focus on the ongoing appeal on the merits of the preliminary injunction itself,” Patrick Rodenbush, a Justice Department spokesman, told the press.
According to White House deputy press secretary Eric Schultz, the Obama administration instead plans to berate the Fifth Circuit Court with “arguments on the legal merits of” the president’s executive actions.
These arguments will occur on July 6, when the Justice Department returns to court on the president’s behalf. After this, the final ruling is not expected until 2016 during the presidential election.
For now, however, Obama has lost and will not be able to go forward with his plans to sign illegal immigrants into quasi-citizenship, making them perfect pawns for the Democratic party.
Obama should probably get used to losing, because this is the first of many losses that will take place for him over the next two years!
