Obama Wants Court To Let His Amnesty Proceed Despite Recent Murder

The Obama administration will try for the third time Friday to convince a federal appeals court to let his executive amnesty move forward.

The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans is set to hear oral arguments on whether the hold on the executive order granting exemption from deportation and work permits to millions of illegal immigrants will stand, reported The Wall Street Journal.

The order, Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents (DAPA) would exempt about four million illegal immigrants from deportation who are parents. Another part of the order expands Obama’s 2012 executive order, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), which temporarily exempted young illegal immigrants from deportation.

The 26 states bringing the lawsuit contend Obama overstepped his authority by unilaterally granting amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants.
