As well he and others should....BO is overstepping his powers, and needs to be stopped from enacting more detrimental actions. BO has not listened to the voice of the majority of Aericans who want the interlopers to be removed, not rewarded.

I'd like to know when Obama will meet with the adults and not the kids? Is he afraid he wouldn't like what we think of his lack of governing for We The People?

You are likely correct about Holder fighting it tooth and nail until after the elections. The best we could hope for is getting the case out in front of the public before the election. The might have to re-think their position if they think they might lose some votes.

"HUMBOLDT - U.S. Rep. Steve King said Tuesday that he will sue President Barack Obama over an executive order that would stop the deportation of certain young illegal immigrants."

As a black democrat, the republicans are right on this.

"The White House claims that it’s telling Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents to exercise “prosecutorial discretion” in not removing illegal aliens. But there is no such discretion.

In 1996, Congress inserted several interlocking provisions into the law that require deportation when Executive Branch officials become aware of illegal aliens.

Congress enacted these provisions explicitly to force the executive branch to place into removal proceedings virtually every illegal alien encountered by federal immigration agents. The exceptions allowed by the 1996 act are very narrow, to be applied only in extraordinary circumstances (such as aliens seeking political asylum).

In other words, the “prosecutorial discretion” that Obama claims he is ordering ICE agents to exercise no longer exists, because Congress eliminated it in 1996.

Congress acted out of frustration that the Clinton administration was using its discretion to let several thousand illegal aliens walk free. Today, Obama is claiming to use the same now nonexistent discretion to let 1.4 million illegals walk free.

Here’s the technical explanation:

* 8 U.S.C.§ 1225(a)(1) provides that “an alien present in the United States who has not been admitted ... shall be deemed for purposes of this chapter an applicant for admission.”

* This triggers 8 U.S.C.§ 1225(b)(2)(A), which mandates that if the immigration officer determines that the alien is unlawfully present, the alien must be placed in deportation proceedings:“In the case of an alien who is an applicant for admission, if the examining immigration officer determines that an alien seeking admission is not clearly and beyond a doubt entitled to be admitted, the alien shall be detained for a proceeding under section 1229a of this title.”

* The proceedings described in 8 U.S.C.§ 1229a are the deportation (or “removal”) proceedings of the US immigration courts.

Of course, the president long ago showed that he isn’t serious about enforcing our immigration laws. On taking office, he virtually ended work-site enforcement. That and other actions prompted ICE agents to take an unprecedented vote of “no confidence” in the Obama appointee running the agency. Then, in 2010 and 2011, Obama had his Justice Department sue states (like Arizona) that were trying to help the federal government enforce the law.

Now he’s taken it a step further, ordering ICE agents to violate the law."

There is no burden for these chosen illegals to prove anything...just imagine to whom this administration is going to give a free pass. This asinine edict is detrimental to this country in so many ways. Wake up people.
