    A “Huge High Five” to all the Dissenters, the majority of the voters of 26 States, and the U.S. 5th Circuit Court of Appeals Who Oppose President Obama’s and the Obama Administration’s Misuse of Executive and Constitutional Authority!




    “White House criticizes ruling against plan to defer deportation of up to 5 million immigrants” by David G. Savage, Brian Bennett and Molly Hennessy-Fiske, Los Angeles Times, November 10, 2015


    Selected Excerpts:


    1. A federal appeals court dealt a severe and possibly fatal blow Monday to President Obama’s executive actions to allow up to 5 million immigrants living illegally in the United States to stay and obtain work permits.


    2. The decision by the U.S. 5th Circuit Court of Appeals may have come too late for the administration to appeal to the Supreme Court and win a reversal before Obama leaves office.


    3. In a 2-1 decision, the appeals court sided with Texas and 25 other states that had sued to block Obama’s programs, Deferred Action for Parents of Americans, or DAPA, and an extension of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA.


    4. The two judges ruled that Obama had “no statutory authority” to issue such sweeping orders on immigration because they forced a change in government regulations that did not go through full and proper procedures.


    5. At its core, this case is about the [administration’s] decision to change the immigration classification of millions of illegal aliens on a class-wide basis,” Judge Jerry Smith said, joined by Judge Jennifer Walker Elrod.


    6. Immigration law “flatly does not permit the reclassification of millions of illegal aliens as lawfully present and thereby make them newly eligible for a host of federal and state benefits, including work authorization,” the court concluded.


    7. The official said 15 states and the District of Columbia have asked the courts to allow the plan to move forward in an effort to fix the nation's broken immigration system. The White House is reviewing the court's decision to consider its next step.


    8. Only then would the Supreme Court put the appeal on its list of cases to be considered. And unless the justices have voted by mid-January to hear an appeal, the case would not be argued and decided in the term that ends next summer.


    9. Cases taken up in February or later will not be decided until early in 2017 — after Obama has left the White House.


    10. Two programs are at issue in the case. There’s an extension of DACA, created in 2012, which allowed those brought into the United States illegally as children to apply for deportation deferrals and work permits. About 636,000 people have been approved to take advantage of the plan.


    11. There’s also DAPA, which was scheduled to start in May. It would grant three-year work permits and temporary protection from deportation to as many as 4.3 million adults who are parents of U.S. citizens or permanent residents and have lived in the country for at least five years.


    12. “Today, the 5th Circuit asserted that the separation of powers remains the law of the land, and the president must follow the rule of law, just like everybody else,” said Texas Atty. Gen. Ken Paxton, whose office includes the state solicitor general who argued the case before the appeals court.


    13. The other plaintiffs 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 and Wisconsin.


    14. The appeals court ruling focused on two rather mundane legal issues — whether Texas has standing to sue over the change in immigration policy and whether Obama’s executive action was a change in government regulations that required a “notice and comment” from the public before it could take effect.


    15. Texas authorities argued they had standing because the state could be forced to issue driver’s licenses to hundreds of thousands of people.


    16. Judge Smith said the cost of the extra driver’s licenses was sufficient to get the state into court.


    17. Republican lawmakers applauded the court’s decision, saying it imposed appropriate limits on what actions a sitting president can take without a change to the immigration laws by Congress.


    18. “President Obama’s decision to ignore the limits placed on his power and act unilaterally to rewrite our nation’s immigration laws is an affront to the Constitution,” House Judiciary Committee Chairman Robert W. Goodlatte (R-Va.) said in a statement.


    19. “The president himself stated over 20 times that he does not have the authority to change immigration laws on his own yet he did so anyway,” Goodlatte said.


    20. Goodlatte and other Republican lawmakers signed an amicus brief submitted to the federal court in support of the states’ lawsuit to block Obama’s executive actions on immigration.

    “Half of immigrants in state illegally could be eligible for Medi-Cal expansion, study finds” by Soumya Karlamangla, LA Times, 11-9-15


    Selected Excerpts:


    1. Half of Californians in the country illegally would be eligible for the state’s healthcare program for the poor if it were expanded under a proposal by legislators, a new report finds.


    2. Some California politicians are pushing to open up the $91-billion Medi-Cal program to people here illegally, since such immigrants are not allowed to sign up for insurance under Obamacare.


    3. The report also found that nearly half a million people would be eligible for Medi-Cal in Los Angeles County alone. That’s not just because the county is home to the state’s biggest population of those here illegally, but also because those in L.A. County are more likely to live in poverty, according to institute researchers.


    4. Over the last year, California politicians have taken steps to offer coverage to people who immigrated here illegally.


    5. Last month, Gov. Jerry Brown signed a law that for the first time provides healthcare to children in the country illegally, making California the largest state to do so. In addition, the number of counties that have committed to giving low-cost, government-run medical care to such residents jumped from 11 to 48 this year. Now only 10 counties provide nothing.
