Judges use Obama's own words to halt deportation amnesty - Washington Times
Stephen Dinan reported on this in the Washington Times:
"A federal appeals court said President Obama’s own words saying he was claiming powers to 'change the law' were part of the reason it struck down his deportation amnesty, in a ruling late Monday that reaffirmed the president must carry out laws and doesn’t have blanket powers to waive them. The 2-1 ruling by the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals punctures Mr. Obama’s immigration plans and is the latest in a series of major court rulings putting limits on the president’s claims of expansive executive powers to enact his agenda without having to get congressional buy-in."
