Fifth Circuit Maintains Roadblock to Obama Immigration Amnesty

Today the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals refused to lift an injunction prohibiting the Obama administration from implementing an executive amnesty program for millions of illegal immigrants.

Ken Paxton, the Attorney General of Texas who is leading a 26 state lawsuit against President Barack Obama’s amnesty order, applauded the court for stopping “a drastic change in immigration policy” since the program bypassed congressional approval. Texas is alleging significant financial burdens on state taxpayers if the federal government is allowed to proceed.

The Obama administration is now considering whether to appeal the Fifth Circuit’s opinion to the U.S. Supreme Court, a move which could backfire and derail a policy goal long sought by immigration activists.

Obama's FCC and Net Neutrality – Merely a Trick on Internet Users or Just a Treat for Google?

WASHINGTON, DC – As President Obama’s FCC moves forward to impose burdensome Net Neutrality regulations on the Internet and just in time for Halloween, the Center for Individual Freedom (“CFIF”) today released the following illustration highlighting the intricate web between the Obama Administration and Google, a leading supporter of Net Neutrality.  The illustration raises the question: Is Net Neutrality merely a trick on Internet users or just a treat for Google’s welfare?

“When Google went trick-or-treating at the White House, it appears they ended up with a little bit of both,” said Timothy Lee, CFIF’s Vice President of Legal and Public Affairs. “Google employees were treated to Administration jobs where they are pushing a trick on the American public in the form of ‘Net Neutrality.’

“Net Neutrality may sound harmless, but it’s actually another attempt by big government to needlessly regulate the private sector,” added Lee. “In this case, Net Neutrality not so coincidentally serves the short-sighted self interests of Google, which seeks to freeload on the backs of ordinary Internet consumers.

“How did so many Google employees end up in an Administration that promised it wouldn't be beholden to corporate interests, anyway?” Lee concluded.
