obama-amnestyObama follows Obamacare playbook in using Supreme Court to okay unconstitutional plot

Barack Obama is betting the Supreme Court will do for his amnesty scheme what they did for Obamacare.

Save his liberal plot from constitutional opposition.

Obama’s plan to give amnesty to five million illegal aliens through an Executive Order was blocked by a federal appeals court, who reminded him under the Constitution only Congress can make new rules on immigration and naturalization.

But Obama believes the Constitution is no obstacle to liberal ambition.

“The Department of Justice on Friday formally appealed to the Supreme Court to overturn a court order blocking the president’s executive actions on immigration,” The Hill reports.

Obama is asking the Court to lift an injunction blocking his amnesty so it can be implemented while the scheme is litigated in court.

“The Obama administration is moving quickly to try and get the case before the high court. The petition was filed just over a week after a federal appeals court decided to keep an injunction in place that has prevented the programs from taking effect,” the Hill continues.

And he’s betting a divided Supreme Court, which already upheld Obamacare, will side with him.

If the Court agrees to take the case, they could issue a ruling at the end of their current session in June 2016.

If he wins, it would be a radical expansion of the President’s power to invent new voters.

A potential Supreme Court vote is too close to call.

Obama appointees Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan, along with liberals Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Stephen Breyer, would likely side with him.

Three justices, Clarence Thomas, Antonin Scalia and Samuel Alito, would likely side with the states who challenged amnesty and keep the injunction in force.

That’s 4-3 vote in Obama’s favor.

Bush appointee and chief justice John Roberts is generally considered a conservative, but has already voted with liberals when he decided Obamacare is constitutional.

That makes the vote a potential 4-4 tie.

And that leaves Justice Anthony Kennedy, who is a swing vote on many issues and could vote either way.
