The Sword that Executes the Law is Not Above It

With that quote, a federal district court in Pennsylvania declared that President Obama’s executive action violated the Separation of Powers and was unconstitutional. The issue at hand did not require the court to set aside the policy so it did not. This ruling gives powerful ammunition to the next Congress to defund an action ruled unconstitutional. If the President then pursues it, Congress can say wait, you are not just fighting us but defying the courts. It takes opposition to it out of the realm of politics. Read the ruling here.

  1. The order gives the defendant one of three choices; ultimately, he’ll likely be deported, because I doubt if Omaba’s order applies to those who re-entered illegally after deportation.

  2. The judge was on the verge of sentencing Escobar for the crime of re-entering the United States after previously being deported, but felt he needed to first make sure that the new law would not change that result. The judge decided that because the executive action amnesty is not constitutional, it has no effect on sentencing Escobar for the crime of re-entering the USA illegally.
