A federal appeals court on Tuesday denied the Obama administration’s request to lift a hold on the president’s executive actions on immigration, which would have granted protection from deportation as well as work permits to millions of immigrants in the country illegally.

Two of three judges on a panel of the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, in New Orleans, left in place an injunction by a Federal District Court judge in Brownsville, Tex. The ruling comes in a lawsuit filed by Texas and 25 other states against actions President Obama took in November. Many of the initiatives were scheduled to take effect this month.

The appeals court found that the states had sufficient legal grounds to bring the lawsuit and that the administration had not shown that it would be harmed if the injunction remained in place and the programs were further delayed.

Also denied was a request by the administration to limit the injunction to the states bringing the lawsuit. The ruling is a second setback for programs the president hoped would be a major piece of his legacy, raising new uncertainty about whether they will take effect before the end of his term and casting doubts on the confidence of administration lawyers that their case was very strong.

Screw Obama and stop him at every turn.

Obama has declared WAR against the AMERICAN PEOPLE !

Simple as that!

Those in Congress sat by while the Court decided this issue.  The ruling will basically change nothing as they stated that now there's not enough in the budget to remove the problem. Those in Congress talk a great deal and hold hearing after hearing and the one tool they have they don't use, File Contempt charges against President Obama and any in his Administration as has been done in the past and worked.  God Bless You All; Van 

The Democratic political hacks are now saying that Republicans want to remove 11 Million illegals, yet in the same voice say that they don't have the money in the budget to do so .... and then they say they want more borrowing to do it.  Talk about double speak.  It just shows us how ANY more spending will be diverted by Obama just like in the Solyundra case, and EPA regulation expansion.
