    Judicial Watch Sues Obama Admin For Amnesty Documents

    http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2012/08/16/

    by Tony Lee

    Judicial Watch today sued the Department of Justice and the Department of Homeland Security for documents related to President Barack Obama’s “Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals” executive order that allows young illegal immigrants who meet certain qualifications to get a two-year work permit and temporary amnesty.

    Judicial Watch says it is seeking the following records in its June 22, 2012, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request:

    All records concerning…the Department of Homeland Security’s decision to exercise prosecutorial discretion with respect to individuals who came to the United States as children…Such records include, but are not limited to, opinions, memoranda, or legal advice rendered by the Office of Legal Counsel.

    The Department of Justice had until July 24, 2012 to comply with the FOIA request, but has failed to do so to date. On June 22, 2012, Judicial Watch submitted a similar FOIA request to the Department of Homeland Security. DHS was required to by law to respond to Judicial Watch by August 10, 2010. DHS, to date, has not responded.


    “This new Obama amnesty program is an attack on the constitutional role of Congress and runs rough shod over existing immigration law. It is no surprise that the Obama administration doesn’t want to share the legal basis for this unilateral executive action and is violating Freedom of Information Act law to keep the American people in the dark,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton in a statement. “President Obama and his political appointees are abusing their offices with this new amnesty program. If the administration were confident about the legality of its actions, it wouldn’t be keeping secret the legal basis for President Obama’s extraordinary decision to unilaterally change the law.”

    Judicial Watch Sues DOJ and DHS for Records about Legal Basis of Obama’s New “Amnesty

    August 16, 2012
    Judicial Watch



    (Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch announced today that it filed a lawsuit in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia on August 15, 2012, against the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) for documents related to the “Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals” directive issued on June 15, 2012 (Judicial Watch v. Department of Justice et al. (No. 1:12-cv-01350)). The new Obama administration policy would allow certain illegal aliens under the age of 31 to apply for protected status that would prevent their deportation and authorize them to work.

    Specifically, Judicial Watch seeks the following records in its June 22, 2012, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request:

    All records concerning…the Department of Homeland Security’s decision to exercise prosecutorial discretion with respect to individuals who came to the United States as children…Such records include, but are not limited to, opinions, memoranda, or legal advice rendered by the Office of Legal Counsel.

    The DOJ acknowledged that on June 25, 2012, it received the FOIA request, and was required to issue a final response by July 24, 2012. To date, the DOJ has failed to respond to the request in accordance with FOIA law.

    On June 22, 2012, Judicial Watch also submitted a similar FOIA request directly to the DHS, which acknowledged that on June 28, 2012, it had received the request. After granting itself a 10-day extension, DHS was required by FOIA law to respond by August 10, 2012. To date, the DHS has also failed to comply with FOIA law.

    “This new Obama amnesty program is an attack on the constitutional role of Congress and runs rough shod over existing immigration law. It is no surprise that the Obama administration doesn’t want to share the legal basis for this unilateral executive action and is violating Freedom of Information Act law to keep the American people in the dark,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “President Obama and his political appointees are abusing their offices with this new amnesty program. If the administration were confident about the legality of its actions, it wouldn’t be keeping secret the legal basis for President Obama’s extraordinary decision to unilaterally change the law.”

    Good move, but without the power of Congress to motivate the courts to facilitate this actiion, it will likely end being meaningless. Congress will not act, they seem to realize that "If I gore your OX,then you will gore my OX deeper." So, they've become reluctant to gore any ones OX except the public's OX. The bad part, nothing changes for the better becasue of fearful rather fearless Congresses.

    Thank you Judicial Watch, now can you sue Obama and ask a judge for an injunction against this obvious abuse of power?

    "Judicial Watch Sues Obama Admin For Amnesty Documents"?!?!?!?!?
    Should Judicial Watch not rather sue the usurpation for the amnesty than for the amnesty documents? Why not sue the Obama usurpation for usurping the authority of Congress in violation of the Constitutional separation of powers?

    I am so grateful for Judicial Watch acting as a restraint upon the endemic lawlessness in WDC. Judicial Watch brings legal action against crimes, corruption, and abuses of power upon which the rest of us despair of having a positive impact.

    Most of us have long since given up on the federal government in WDC as being just as venal and subject to thuggery, coercion, bribery, and blatant political influence as the government in any banana republic or third world country in Latin America, Africa, Southeast Asia, or the former Soviet republics. At least Judicial Watch is prepared and equipped to keep coming back to the sewer day after day to try to hold back the flood of corruption that continually belches forth from the bowels of the beast. You and I wouldn't be able to stand it day after day, month after month, year after year. I would probably wind up in jail after giving vent to righteous indignation or even baser outrage.

    It approaches reckless endangerment that otherwise decent, law-abiding Christian parents are so blinded by pride that they send their good and godly, clean and virtuous young people to be pages in the U.S. Congress. They will certainly not disinfect the offices and residents there, but the low-lifes there will surely debase and defile the moral quality and ethical excellence of these exemplary young people.

    God bless Judicial Watch for standing in the gap against evil so ingrown, pervasive, and festering that most Americans cannot bear to examine it or even to know about it. Washington, D.C., is truly a wicked place. As the Rev. Dr. Billy Graham was fond of saying, "If God does not judge America, He will surely have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah." Whatever deserves His judgment upon America is deserving x 2 inside the Beltway and from the Pentagon to Fort Meade. Truly, Jehovah-jireh is a "God Who sees," yet His hand is outstretched still.

    One man's terrorist is another man's undocumented worker.

    Unless we enforce laws against illegal aliens today,
    tomorrow WE may wake up as illegals.

    The last word: illegal aliens are ILLEGAL!
