Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals Upholds Injunction Against Obama's Executive Amnesty, Blocking Enforcement of the Amnesty Until a Full Trial on the Merits

A lower court had issued an injunction staying enforcement of the amnesty. The Obama Administration appealed that injunction, seeking to go ahead with the amnesty until/unless a full hearing confirmed the amnesty as unconstitutional.

The Obama Administration's efforts resulted in, get this, failure.

A federal appeals court upheld an injunction against President Obama's new deportation in a ruling Tuesday that marks the second major legal setback for an administration that had insisted its actions were legal.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit ruled in favor of Texas, which had sued to stop the amnesty, on all key points, finding that Mr. Obama’s amnesty likely broke the law governing how big policies are to be written.

"The public interest favors maintenance of the injunction," the judges wrote in the majority opinion.

...

The full amnesty had been scheduled to begin last week, while an earlier part had been slated to accept applications on Feb. 18....

This is not a final ruling on the merits, but it is reason for optimism.

Here's hoping.
