Federal Appeals Court ‘Ignores Rule Of Law,’ Defers To White House On Deportation Cases?

~ The Rebel ~ 2012/03/02 23:37:28
– Does the Obama administration intend to enforce the nation’s immigration laws or not? Two Republicans are asking that question, after a federal appeals court halted the deportation of five suspected illegal aliens on Monday, asking the Obama administration whether it plans to stop the deportations.

In a 2-1 ruling, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals set a March 19 deadline for the Obama administration to explain whether it intends to use “prosecutorial discretion” to prevent the aliens’ removal. The five cases are on hold in the meantime.

On Thursday, Rep. Lamar Smith (R-Texas,) chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, and Sen. Charles Grassley (R-Utah), ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said the Obama administration must make it clear to the court that the administration will enforce immigration laws, including the deportation of illegal and criminal immigrants who lose their cases in the federal court.

    Perhaps the time has come for impeachment of Federal Judges who fail to enforce the law as written . When and were did law enforcement become optional ? " Prosecutional discretion " is known as selective enforcement , AKA corruption . Judges who fail to follow the law ( including the supreme court judges ) need to be reminded that they can and will be removed for malfeasance .
