Immigration Reform 2015: Judge warns Justice department on Obama executive order

Immigration Reform 2015: Judge warns Justice department on Obama executive order  

Immigration reform may remain embroiled in legal wrangling for the next several years. This is going to make things all the more difficult for those people who were expected to get some sort of relief under Obama’s immigration reform 2015 executive order.

But there seems to be a sharp turn in this legal wrangle. U.S. District Court Judge Andrew Hanen has threatened sanctions against Justice Department. The hearing was taking place at Brownsville, Texas.

While rebuking the Justice Department with sanctions he said that “as an idiot I believed that”. Andrew Hannen says that he was made to believe by Justice Department that the Obama Immigration executive order will not be implemented before February 18. But this was a false assumption and it actually started much before that.

Kathleen Hartnett of Justice Department tried to assure the justice that it was not the case and he was not misled wittingly. “We strive to be as candid as possible. It truly became clear to us there was confusion on this point,” Hartnett told Andrew Hannen while adding that the protections were enacted under federal guidelines put in place in 2012, not as a result of Obama’s executive orders.

As many as 26 states in the US had approached the curt. Andrew Hanen amazed almost everyone when he approved an injunction request from to block Obama’s plan to shield some five million illegal immigrants from deportation.

Republicans are keeping up the pressure on Obama administration on immigration reform, the pet project of the President. Republican states’ lead attorney Angela Colmenero asked Hanen to implement sanctions against the Justice Department, based on the fact that some of the illegal immigrants may have received undue benefits as a result of their inclusion in the federal program.

On the other hand Hartnett criticized the states’ request saying “There is absolutely no basis for sanctions here…The government is absolutely trying to do the right thing.”
