DoJ Admits DHS Violated Injunction

The lawlessness of the Obama Administration continues.

DHS broke judge's order, approved amnesty applications despite injunction - Washington Times

Quote:

President Obamaís lawyers admitted to a federal judge late Thursday that they had broken the courtís injunction halting the administrationís new deportation amnesty, issuing thousands of work permits even after Judge Andrew S. Hanen had ordered the program stopped.

The stunning admission, filed just before midnight in Texas, where the case is being heard, is the latest misstep for the administrationís lawyers, who are facing possible sanctions by Judge Hanen for their continued problems in arguing the case.

The Justice Department lawyers said Homeland Security, which is the defendant in the case, told them Wednesday that an immigration agency had approved about 2,000 applications for three-year work permits, which was part of Mr. Obamaís new amnesty, even after Judge Hanen issued his Feb. 16 injunction halting the entire program.

Top Obama officials, including Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, had repeatedly assured Congress they had fully halted the program and were complying with the order.

Mr. Obama announced the amnesty last year, expanding on a previous amnesty for Dreamers, or young adult illegal immigrants. That initial program, known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, granted Dreamers a two-year stay of deportation and work permits allowing them legally to take jobs in the U.S.

Under the expansion, illegal immigrant parents of American citizens and green card holders were allowed to apply for the same program, under a program known as Deferred Action for Parental Accountability, or DAPA. The two-year period was also expanded to three years for both Dreamers and the expanded pool of parents.

Those three-year permits were what landed the government in trouble. The Homeland Security Department began approving DACA applicants for three-year work permits almost immediately, though it didnít approve any DAPA applications.

Judge Hanen said he was surprised that the three-year applications were being approved, since he thought the administration had told him none of the new program was in effect. Justice Department lawyers said they hadnít mean to mislead him, and had included in their briefing papers documents showing that the three-year approvals were to take effect last November ó but apologized nonetheless for leaving the wrong impression.

Doesn't appear to be true. The program the applications were issued from were NOT the program the Judge was halting in the Executive statements.

It's good to read the whole article. If any of this were true, Fox opinion would be all over it.

Yeah, the DoJ admitted it.

FOX is not what you LWNJ's make it out to be.
