Poe: Obama Will Lose Appeal Over Executive Order

By    |   Friday, 13 March 2015 11:26 AM

There is no question that the Obama administration will lose its appeal on a ruling by a Texas judge imposing an injunction blocking the president’s executive order granting de facto amnesty to some 5 million illegal immigrants, Texas Rep. Ted Poe said Friday on "America’s Forum" on Newsmax TV.

U.S. District Court Judge Andrew Hanen "said that the administration's action of legalizing basically 5 million people was so egregious that he had to order an injunction to prevent that executive action from taking place because it violated the law and technically he didn't get to the issue of constitutionality," explained Poe, a former judge.

"The judge said that the administration did not open up this order for public comment."

President Barack Obama, who Poe said "thinks it's Burger King, he can always have his way," has appealed the decision to the Fifth Circuit in New Orleans, where Poe predicts "he's going to lose again."

"The best thing so far is the injunction has been implemented and the process, the court process, as everybody in the country knows, takes a long time. So we're talking about months from now before any ruling by a higher court. "

He doesn’t think an appeals court will be swayed by the administration’s argument that the judge’s edict could apply just to the 25 states that field the lawsuit.

"Our defense, the state of Texas and the 25 states’ defense … is hey that's ridiculous because people move across state lines and so if you allow it for the people in these other states, those people will end up coming to the 25 states that have sued the president."
