    House to Vote on Opposing Executive Amnesty at Supreme Court

    by CAROLINE MAY
    1 Mar 2016

    The House will vote on whether to file a brief in opposition to President Obama’s executive amnesty with the Supreme Court.

    House Speaker Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) announced Tuesday that “in the coming weeks” House Republicans will be taking their “next step to stop the president’s executive overreach.”

    “The House will vote on whether to file an amicus brief in Supreme Court opposing the president’s executive amnesty,” Ryan told reporters “This is a very extraordinary step. In fact, it has never been done before.”

    The Supreme Court agreed to hear Texas and 25 states’ challenge to the Obama administration’s 2014 executive amnesty programs in January.

    To date, the states have been successful at the district court and appeals court levels in blocking the executive amnesty programs— which would grant millions of illegal immigrants de facto legal status and work permits — from taking effect.

    “This executive amnesty is a direct attack on the Congress’s Article I powers under our Constitution,” Ryan continued Tuesday. “This is a question between Article I and Article II. The president is not permitted to write law. Only Congress is.”

    “The House will make that very, very clear, and we will do so as an institution on behalf of the American people, on behalf of representative self-government,” he added.

    House moves to file Supreme Court brief in Obama immigration case

    By JAKE SHERMAN and LAUREN FRENCH

    Speaker Paul Ryan announced Tuesday that the House will vote on a resolution to allow the chamber to file a brief in a Supreme Court case that tests the validity of President Barack Obama's immigration executive order.

    Ryan (R-Wis.) told a closed meeting of House Republicans that the chamber will attempt to file a brief in U.S. v. Texas, which tests whether Obama's plan to defer deportation for millions of undocumented immigrants is legal. A lower court halted the program. Ryan cautioned that this is an "extraordinary circumstance," according to a source in the room, and lawmakers should not expect that the House will intervene in every Supreme Court case.


    "This is a very extraordinary step. In fact, it’s never been done before. This executive amnesty is a direct attack on the Congress’ Article One powers under our constitution. This is a question between Article One and Article Two," Ryan told reporters. "The president is not permitted to write law. Only Congress is. The House will make that very, very clear."

    Paul Clement, the former solicitor general, is representing the House on a pro bono basis, according to a source familiar with the plan.


    The House is getting involved only after the Supreme Court added a question to the case: whether Obama honored the Take Care Clause, which mandates that the president "take care that the laws be faithfully executed." House Republicans, of course, believe Obama ignored the law.


    The House will try to secure time during the oral argument in front of the Supreme Court.


    A source familiar with the plan said this is the first time the House has taken such a step.

    NO AMNESTY

    Don't reward the criminal actions of millions of illegal aliens by giving them citizenship.

    What a bunch of bull crap from Paul Ryan! A brief? An Amicus Brief? How about you yank funding like Congress can do... oh yea! Almost forgot... Ryan and his team funded Obama's abuses.

    I guess they will consider filing an amicus brief against the Obama executive overreach they rubber stamped and funded.

    I hate these treasonous liars.
