Now that President Elect Trump has been elected into office it seems that the days of amnesty for illegal aliens in the United States are finally coming to end. But that did not stop President Obama from trying to let more illegal immigrants go free.
Judge Andrew Hansen has finally declared a waiting period to be put into place that will allow President Trump’s administration to weigh in on their position on the issue. So this last Friday the Obama administration halted their amnesty efforts in compliance with the judges order and suspended further action until the required time.
The Justice Department and lawyers from the State of Texas released a joint statement on the issue saying,
“Accordingly, the parties respectfully submit that further proceedings on the merits of this case, including the submission of a schedule for resolving the merits, should be stayed until February 20, 2017.”
Hanen has blocked usurpation of federal immigration law in the last like he did in February of last year. He stood up against the Obama administration in ways that other people probably would not have. The injunction he had was upheld in two different appeals cases.
The case wasn’t split with a 4-4 Supreme Court ruling. Thus, the ruling reverted back to the original ruling which had been mandated by the lower court. Nothing will be done until the Trump administration is able to have their say on the issue.
“Given the change in Administration, the parties jointly submit that a brief stay of any further litigation in this Court before beginning any further proceedings would serve judicial efficiency and economy so that the parties have a better understanding of how they might choose to move forward.”
Since we all know Trump’s stance on illegal immigration the chance of him showing support in favor of amnesty is slim to none. He will likely do what he has always said he would do and show support for tightening restrictions against illegal immigrants, building a wall along the Mexican-American border and deporting violent illegal aliens.
