‘To allow this to stand would amount to trashing our constitutional republic’
A courtroom fight over Barack Obama’s amnesty plan for millions of illegal aliens already in the United States on Wednesday is heading to Chief Justice John Roberts and the rest of the U.S. Supreme Court after a district court dismissed the case for “lack of subject matter jurisdiction.”
Attorney Larry Klayman of FreedomWatch told WND he’ll try to leap-frog the usual appellate procedure because of the significance of the case and the immediacy of the problem.
“We will now ask the Supremes to bypass the D.C. Circuit and take this up now as the Obama Justice Department argued the full impact of the exec actions kick in in February 2015,” he said.
He brought the case on behalf Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, whose job it will be to deal with illegals locally under Obama’s plan, instead of having them deported and removed from his jurisdiction, according to the case documents.
The goal of the case at the outset was a ruling from the Supreme Court on Obama’s strategy to use notes to federal agencies, called executive memoranda, to implement the change in the nation’s law, rather than going through Congress for such changes.
