Immigration Reform 2015: Hearing To Determine If Justice Department Misled Texas Judge On Obama Executive Order

A federal court in Brownsville, Texas, will hold a hearing Thursday to determine if the Justice Department misled U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen on aspects of President Barack Obama’s executive action on immigration. The hearing is part of a larger lawsuit that 26 states filed against Obama’s order in November to shield some 5 million illegal immigrants from deportation without first seeking approval from Congress.

The hearing in Brownsville, located near the border Texas shares with Mexico, aims to address an aspect of that lawsuit. Hanen filed an injunction last month that blocked federal officials from implementing Obama’s immigration plan. The Justice Department said in a court filing last month that 100,000 illegal immigrants who would have been affected by Hanen’s injunction were protected under a separate federal program that guaranteed three years of deferred action.

But the 26 states claim the Justice Department told Hanen prior to the injunction that Obama’s orders had yet to be enacted, according to the Associated Press. Meanwhile, the Justice Department has appealed Hanen’s injunction.

Hanen said in a Feb. 17 explanation of the injuction that the federal government failed to give proper notice of its plan to shield illegal immigrants. The Justice Department sought an emergency stay of the injunction and asked the judge to limit the injunction’s reach to Texas, but Hanen declined on March 10 to remove the injunction until a hearing could be held where the Justice Department could explain its filing related to the 100,000 illegal immigrants, according to Reuters.

There is only one other way to stop him/it. Any volunteers to.... impeach?

Smoke and Mirrors GALORE!

I really wish they stop with all these non-productive hearings. There is only one hearing that is needed and that's a hearing for impeachment. None of Obama's law breaking tactics are going to stop until he is impeached.

Hey-- Boehner, McConnell: you guys taking notes?  Judge Hanen hasn't roll over,  Unlike you, he's turning up the heat. 

This judge needs to expand his review of the DOJ by asking them to explain why they have failed to secure/detain and deport, nearly 200,000 convicted criminals, many with open warrants and criminal violations pending.  Selective prosecution is not a law... it is a very bad CUSTOM of the court that ignores the law... and permits criminal conduct. 

Wholesale deferred prosecution is nothing more than criminal in its effects... it violates the law and is openly committing 'Misprision of a Felony and aids and abets criminal conduct'... below are general descriptions of possible crimes being committed by the DOJ and others in this Administration:

Aid and Abet Definition

To assist someone in committing or encourage someone to commit a crime. Generally, an aider and abettor is criminally liable to the same extent as the principal. Also called "aid or abet" and "counsel and procure."

Illustrative case law

See, e.g. Stoneridge Inv. Partners, LLC, v. Scientific-Atlanta, Inc. 552 U.S.....

101pW40e1 know he lied and it was intentional. What they believe because in the past so many have been given amnesty for actions questionable and/or illegal because they believe themselves above the law and are hoping someone else will do it for them, this is the very reason Holder is stepping down before Obama leaves office so he doesn't have to worry a Re0publican President's administration going after him for his lies, violation of his oath of office, actions of criminality and the misuse of his office to insight riots, social unrest and voter fraud. The Congress should call him on it now and get together a special prosecutor and go after his ass.

This administration and what they've done and attempted to do show the nation what racism is all about and has made it known your vote means more than putting a novelty in office just so you can be alive when  it does happen, What took place has been a disaster and has made those tolerant of race less likely to continue without cause. Barry Soetero (Obama) and the Democratic Party have set back how people feel towards differences in race, religion and trusting in each other that inside we are all the same and need to work together to protect each other. He knew what he was doing and did it along with flooding the nation with everybody but white people or even non criminals of any race, he has sought to bring us down and separate us again.

Is there no one willing to end his reign out there? Obama must be served and made benign.

Congress and the Judicial committees in both houses among others should be compiling a long list of offenses made by the current members of government... which are being ignored... for prosecution as soon as an honorable Administration can purse them.  No one should be above the law or out of its reach.

The bottom line is, What are we going to do about it? We look at the horror of Obama and his cronies continuing their evil criminal behavior and nothing gets done. It really is all about the Americans ..the True American Patriots standing up to this Tyranny. If not....why waste your time on websites talking about it? The Debate and chit chats have gone on too long and is Worthless along with stupid. I say, how will everyone plan to do your part. Does anyone have courage? Sacrifice is the word, what do you have to lose? I have come to the point whereas my Liberty and Freedom is much more important than money, material items and the pleasures the government wants us to continue to be brainwashed doing. The Trojan horse is Pleasure we continue to push on every single day without putting in the front burner what is really at stake. Ask yourselves that question! What is at stake every day of your lives? are just another slave, like me looking for the leadership to overthrow this illegal government in DC.

TRUMP:  Trump To Give ‘Start Your Engines’ Command At Dayton

President Donald Trump will give the command for drivers to start their engines before the Daytona 500.

Daytona International Speedway officials named Trump the grand marshal for NASCAR’s season opener, meaning he will deliver the most famous four words in auto racing. “Gentleman, start your engines,” has been a staple of races around the country and world for decades.

White House spokesman Judd Deere said Thursday the president plans to attend the race. Track president Chip Wile confirmed the news in a release.

“Daytona International Speedway has been privileged to have hosted several sitting presidents of the United States over our history,” Wile said. “We’re honored that the president of the United States has chosen to experience the pageantry and excitement of ‘The Great American Race.’”

Trump is the third sitting president to attend a race at Daytona, but only the second to attend the Daytona 500. George W. Bush attended in 2004. Trump is the first to be given an honorary role in pre-race ceremonies.

Trump is scheduled to spend part of the Presidents Day weekend at his private club in Palm Beach, Florida.

The Federal Aviation Administration issued a flight restriction for Sunday and the U.S. Secret Service, which is responsible for presidential security, also tweeted to fans that drones are prohibited within 30 miles of the race in Daytona Beach — a restriction put in place for presidential visits.

Trump has hosted previous NASCAR champions at the White House and last October awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom to motorsports titan Roger Penske. Last year, Trump also praised retired driver Mario Andretti, the Daytona 500 winner in 1967, reminiscing about a ride Andretti gave him in a race car for his reality show “The Apprentice.”

“I said, ‘Mario, get me out of here. I want to get out of this car,’” Trump recalled. “We went so fast. We literally — we covered four blocks in like a second.”
