What If Trump Just Ignored Judges Like Obama Did?
An Obama-appointed judge on the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco has just ruled against President Trump’s new asylum policy for fake refugees from Mexico, Central America and South America.
The president’s new policy would require that phony “migrants” who request asylum in the US must remain in Mexico while their claims – which are inevitably found to be invalid – are processed.
This, of course, is a sensible alternative to turning the illegals loose in America and asking them to pretty please show up for a future court date, thus allowing them to vanish into the interior of the US.
Once again, a president trying uphold the mandate under which he was elected by simply following the black letter of established law is thwarted by a lone unelected judge.
What if Trump just threw up his hands in frustration tomorrow and began treating court orders the same way that Barack Obama did?
A federal judge ruled that Barack Obama’s Deferred Action on (Wildly Fake) Childhood Arrivals, otherwise known as DACA, was illegal. The judge ordered the Obama administration to stop handing out three-year amnesty cards to these illegal aliens.
Obama responded by ordering the US Customs and Immigration System (USCIS) to continue printing and handing out three-year amnesty cards to DACA signups – but this time, without telling anyone. The Obama standard: It’s not a violation of a court order if you don’t tell anyone you’re doing it!
These were the “cream of the crop” DACA recipients as well – illegal aliens with existing deportation orders against them. They were supposed to be kicked out of the country under current federal law, because they had been convicted of crimes on US soil (aside from the crime of illegal entry).
Judge Andrew Hanen was infuriated when he learned that the Obama administration had directly defied a court order.
He directed USCIS to immediately attempt to collect all of the three-year amnesty cards from Obama’s DACA “dreamers.” Not surprisingly, almost all of the illegal aliens refused to return their three-year “get out of deportation free” cards.
Barack Obama directly violated federal law by granting temporary amnesty to his illegal alien criminals who were under deportation orders.
When he got caught, his administration violated a court order and continued granting amnesty cards. As a result… nothing happened.
There was no penalty. No one paid a fine. No federal immigration bureaucrat was fired. Obama wasn’t impeached for having a corrupt character that led him to violate federal law.
Following that debacle, the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that both Obama’s Deferred Action on the Parents of (Wildly Fake) Americans and DACA were unconstitutional. The Supreme Court has never overruled that decision.
Yet the DACA and DAPA recipients are all still here. None of them have been deported, despite the fact that they signed up for these federal programs and therefore, the government knows exactly who they are and where they are.
They’re not “in the shadows.” But they’re still on US soil despite the black letter of the law and despite a court order ruling their amnesty programs unconstitutional.
Barack Obama wanted to do something illegal, and he did it – and there was no consequence for it. To his credit, he had a lot of experience doing just that.
When Democrat strategists realized that the employer mandate under the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) was going to hurt Obama’s reelection chances in 2012, Obama singlehandedly rewrote the law.
He granted large employers an extension until after his reelection was secured.
When Congress realized that Obamacare applied to them and their own staff members (oops), Obama held secret meetings for three months with Republican and Democrat leaders in House and Senate to grant them their now-infamous “exemption” from Obamacare – an exemption that was never written into the law.
What if President Trump began ignoring court orders tomorrow, as Obama did so many times throughout his administration?
What if the State Department stopped issuing visas to immigrants from countries that are hotbeds of Islamic terrorism?
What if the US simply began turning all of the fake “refugees” from Honduras and El Salvador loose on the Mexico side of the border?
Oh, that’s right. Trump would need to be impeached for violating a court order. Because it’s somehow different when a Republican does it.
