Team Obama to Ask for Stay on Immigration Ruling

White House says Justice Department to file request by Monday
The Obama administration will ask a federal court to allow it to continue implementing the president’s immigration plan, following a legal setback this past week.
The Department of Justice plans to file a request for an emergency stay of a recent injunction, which temporarily blocked the Department of Homeland Security’s rollout of its immigration program, while it appeals that ruling. The program would allow about four million people currently in the country illegally to apply for deferred deportation and work authorizations.
Hey Eric ... Isn't the 5th District Court of Appeal the 
MOST CONSERVATIVE court in the Country? hahahaha
Attorneys for the Justice Department will make the request by Monday at the latest, White House press secretary Josh Earnest said Friday. The stay, if granted, would allow the administration to continue laying the groundwork for its Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents program.
Late Monday, a federal district-court judge in Texas blocked the administration from implementing the program in response to a lawsuit from 26 states, which allege President Barack Obama has overstepped his executive authority in creating the program announced in November.
Hey Eric, Guess which SCOTUS Judge decides which 
cases are heard from the 5th District?  hahahaha!!!
The administration has said it is planning a separate appeal of the decision to the Fifth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans. The fight could quickly move to the U.S. Supreme Court. If a stay is granted, the federal government would be able to immediately press ahead with its pending immigration programs.
