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.

CFIF Releases New Ad in West Virginia Urging AG McGraw to Fight Back Against Washington’s War on Coal Print

ALEXANDRIA, VA – As part of its ongoing State Sovereignty Project, the Center for Individual Freedom (“CFIF”) today released a new TV ad in West Virginia that urges Attorney General Darrell McGraw to stand up for West Virginians against Washington’s War on Coal.

The new ad, titled “Crushing” and which can be viewed below, is the second in a series of CFIF ads in the state and part of a nearly $1.6 million expenditure announced by CFIF earlier this month.  

“Washington’s War on Coal threatens the livelihoods of thousands of West Virginia families and the bedrock of the state’s economy,” said CFIF President Jeffrey Mazzella.  “It’s time for Attorney General McGraw to get off his hands and use his authority to fight back against Washington’s destructive overreach.”

Founded in 1998, CFIF is a constitutional and free market advocacy organization with more than 250,000 activists and supporters nationwide. CFIF’s State Sovereignty Project was launched earlier this year to encourage governmental authorities closest to the people to reclaim and exercise the structural powers granted to them by the U.S. Constitution as a bulwark against federal encroachments on state sovereignty and erosion of the individual liberties of the people they serve.
