Meanwhile, While Everyone Is Distracted – Obama Files SCOTUS Appeal For DAPA…

Meanwhile today, while everyone is looking at the “shiny refugee thing”, the Obama administration files an appeal for review of the Hanen DAPA injunction to the Supreme Court…


DAPA or Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents program – is the executive action Obama attempted in November of 2014 which was shut down by Federal Judge Andrew Hanen in February ’15 with the issuance of an emergency injunction.

It was the “injunction” blocking the administration which was appealed to the 5th CCA the first time. The White House lost the first appeal, and had two options:

  • Option 1.) ask the Supreme Court Justice who oversees the circuit to override the decision – that judge is Anton Scalia, they knew they stood no chance.
  • Option 2.) The DOJ could ask the full CCA to hear their argument, based on “standing”, – that was the route they chose.

The DOJ appealed Hanen’s injunction the second time claiming Hanen held no standing to block their executive action. The DOJ lost that second appeal two weeks ago, as the 5th CCA affirmed Judge Hanen did indeed have authority to issue the injunction.  – Full Back Story

Here’s where people get lost.  At its current point the DOJ can appeal their appellate court loss to the Supreme Court; however, as with all of their loses they only lost the appeal to remove the injunction – THE UNDERLYING CASE HAS NEVER BEEN ARGUED or HEARD.

We have affirmed the Obama plan of action, seeking only to remove the injunction and not assert its legality, is evidence the White House never intended to win the underlying case. – See Here –   Obama only wants the injunction lifted so he can fulfill his objectives of “fundamental change”.

Today more evidence of that insufferable usurpation:

The Department of Justice on Friday formally appealed to the Supreme Court to overturn a court order blocking the president’s executive actions on immigration.

The Obama administration is moving quickly to try and get the case before the high court. The petition was filed just over a week after a federal appeals court decided to keep an injunction in place that has prevented the programs from taking effect.

“A divided court of appeals has upheld an unprecedented nationwide injunction against implementing a federal immigration enforcement policy of great national importance, and has done so in violation of established limits on the judicial power,” Solicitor General Donald Verrilli Jr. wrote in the petition to the Supreme Court.

“If left undisturbed, that ruling will allow states to frustrate the federal government’s enforcement of the nation’s immigration laws,” Verrilli added. “This case warrants immediate review.”

The Justice Department filed its appeal on the one-year anniversary of Obama’s announcement of the controversial initiatives.  (

    I never knew true hatred better yet I had no idea what it felt like to hate
    That feeling runs thru my veins
    Aches in my heart
    Bubbles the blood
    And has
    Scorched my soul
    So now I know…
    I have added a new emotion to my life

    Reblogged this on Centinel2012 and commented:

    Obama, and Hillary will continue if she is elected, will do everything they can to minimize or completely nullify the US constitution. That is their primary goal and I suspect that they hope they can create some kind of internal terror event that allows them to declare martial law and us that to get rid of the constitution. Almost everything they do from stirring race hatred to bring in illegals i.e. criminals for Mexico or Jihadists from the Middle East is part of that strategy. By background as a former US Army Green Beret gives me the cred to say this as back in the day I was trained to ferment dissent in the oppressed countries of the old U.S.S.R. And I am not the only one of the old Dogs that see this!

      what is it? the power? the guaranteed $$ fat living lifestyle? or do they really believe in the NWO as a solution? The fancy lifestyle is an immediate gratification and the NWO Agenda is a process they are manipulating. I am certain that much of this is the implementing Alinsky Cloward Piven strategies to break down our culture and bring chaos. Community organizing – mega style. Obama and Hillary are Alinsky prodigies. Of course Saul Alinsky devoutly channeled Lucifer whom he said is the original fundamental change agent. So there is a dark influence to all of this.

        Agree 1000% tw.
        Alinsky, Cloward-Piven, lucifer, NWO, chaos.
        Very nice summation, lotta statement in your single paragraph.

        Dark influence indeed.

        Whenever I see a happening that makes me think “NWO” I then think: no, you’re thinking too conspiratorial, nothing could be this well organized globally.
        Whenever I see something that makes me think “Soros” I then think: no, no one single person could be this evil, or influential.

        I truly believe there is something more sinister at work here than poor decision making by well intentioned individuals, more sinister than the rich and powerful attempting to become yet more rich and powerful.

          I agree with you: “nothing could be this well organized globally” (too many variables); and, “no single person could be this influential”.

          I left out evil because I believe George Soros is the very face of evil.

          George Soros…what would you see if you went into his head? He sees himself as a fixer and uses his money and influence to bring down nations because his vision is for a world centrally controlled by a power elite. But it is more than a delusional belief that he has a good plan for humanity. He is controlled by familiar spirits who work for the god of this world. ( LIttle “g”). ” the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them”(2 Corinthians 4). Everything becomes clearer when we realize there is a spiritual battle ensuing. (▀̿̿Ĺ̯̿̿▀̿ ̿)

      ADD: It’s not the nation’s immigration law, it’s an Executive Order! Unless, oh yeah, OB-wana-be’s words/desires ARE the law of the land.

      Funny, I thought this was still a Constitutional Republic (for now) where the Representatives of the People decided this nation’s laws, not the Executive Branch?

    • The problem is that the federal government refuses to enforce the nation’s immigration laws.

    Maybe I’m extra dense here, Sundance, but does Obama’s only chance of success here still depend upon Scalia allowing the case to move to the Supreme Court? Thanks

        But just the injunction to allow the Executive Order to continue to be implemented is what they are arguing needs to go immediately in front of the Justices, not the merits of the “law”.

          Ziiggii, I apologize. Apparently I am the one who misunderstood though I confess, I am still confused. This, in an email from Numbers USA yesterday which I just got around to reading today would obviously prove me wrong:

          The Obama Administration has officially petitioned the Supreme Court to hear arguments in the lawsuit brought up by Texas and 26 other states against the President’s unconstitutional executive DAPA amnesty. The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals upheld an earlier injunction against the amnesty earlier this month. The injunction prevents the Administration from granting work permits and social security cards to an estimated 5 million illegal aliens.

      I believe that would be the full fifth? circuit court of appeals. ALL of the judges, not just three. There are obviously more liberal judges than conservative judges in the fifth circuit and they think they have a better chance with all of them. Supreme Court Justice Scalia who oversees the fifth circuit was the bridge to nowhere for them.

      I’m no lawyer or paralegal, but I believe this is what Sundance is saying.

    • Commies on a mission. Once the mission is all they can see, they forget why they did it, and lose track of good versus evil, gain versus loss, and cost versus benefit. In the end, there is little difference between statist madmen, once they lose sight of everything but the receding goal.

  15. I saw somewhere that Obama won a court ruling to allow 3 illegal mothers of anchor babies to testify in this case. They would complain about “breaking up families.” Deporting the illegal parents is not breaking up families. They can take their anchor babies back to Mexico or wherever when they go. Parents are supposed to support their children, not the U.S. government.

    Their children don’t have to stay here because they were given American citizenship when they were born. The children also have the citizenship of the mothers, so they can go to the mother’s country, where they really belong. They don’t complain about the families they broke up when they deserted their older children to come here and have “American born” babies that are supported by the U.S. taxpayers.

    Does this mean that the parents of illegal aliens can bring their parents here? If so that means they will be given SS benefits and be enrolled in Medicare. That protocol is already in place, I’ve seen it in working pharmacy, they have full Medicare benefits.

  20. Federale says:

    Actually the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit ruled on the merits of the case and decided that DHS acted outside its authority, ruling the action, DAPA and enhanced DACA illegal. The implication is also that any ruling in the Fifth Circuit on DACA will also find it illegal.
