Tom Tancredo: Why Isn't GOP Cheering Obama's Judicial Setback?

By    |   Wednesday, 18 February 2015 07:27 PM

Republican lawmakers should be cheering a judge’s decision to slam the brakes on President Obama’s immigration reform plan — but sadly, they don’t have the guts, former Rep. Tom Tancredo told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Wednesday.

Asked if the GOP should "take to the airwaves, stand out there and say we won," in the wake of U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanan’s blocking of Obama's executive action shielding millions of illegal immigrants, Tancredo, a Colorado Republican, said on the Newsmax TV program:

"Certainly, I think so. Will they do it? Of course, not. It's a matter of guts and the guts aren't there buddy. They just don't have the b---s to do this stuff."

Hanan’s temporary ruling came in response to a lawsuit filed by 26 states which argued the Obama’s plan violated constitutional limits on his powers.

And Tancredo — author of "In Mortal Danger: The Battle for America's Border and Security," published by Cumberland House Publishing — said the judge’s ruling is solid. But he believes the White House will fight it tooth and nail.

"[The judge] said you have not done any of the things that are required by law to put into effect this kind of regulation," Tancredo said.

"I'm sure, right this moment that the Justice Department is out judge shopping like crazy, trying to figure out how to get this moved into a different district."
