VIA| On Tuesday, federal Judge Andrew Hanen ruled against lawyers for the Justice Department, upholding the injunction he had placed on the Obama administration’s implementation of amnesty for illegal immigrants and summing up Obama’s illegal immigration program with one word: “non-enforcement.”
On top of that, the judge ripped into the DOJ lawyers for misleading the court about whether or not parts of the amnesty plan had already been implemented even before his order delaying the program.
Then the judge used President Obama’s own words against him, saying they proved that he had made the right decision in halting the amnesty plan, as Obama seems to believe his own policies supersede established federal law.
“In summary, the chief executive has ordered that the laws requiring removal of illegal immigrants that conflict with the 2014 DHS directive are not to be enforced, and that anyone who attempts to do so will be punished,” Judge Hanen wrote.
“This is not merely ineffective enforcement. This is total non-enforcement,” the judge said, essentially noting that Obama has failed to “faithfully execute” the law, as he twice swore an oath to do.
According to The Washington Times, Hanen also noted his displeasure at the fact that the DOJ lawyers had neglected to inform him immediately about the fact that at least one aspect of the amnesty plan had already been set in motion, despite their assertion in court that nothing had been started yet.
“Whether by ignorance, omission, purposeful misdirection, or because they were misled by their clients, the attorneys for the government misrepresented the facts,” the judge said.
In truth, the DOJ lawyers now find themselves in violation of the standards and rules of conduct set by the American Bar Association and could face some sort of disciplinary action, whether by the judge or the ABA itself.
Hanen hasn’t ruled out sanctions on the lawyers, but has first ordered them to turn over every bit of information available regarding the amnesty program that had already been started before deciding how to proceed.
The case is at the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, who tend to lean conservative but could honestly rule either way on this issue.
