.. in Executive Amnesty Litigation

A Judge has detected some interesting legal tactics used by the Obama Administration (specifically the Dept of Justice).

Looks like they tried to pull the wool over the eyes of the Court in a case about Obama's Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents (“DAPA”) program.

The case has been challenged and the Administration has apparently jumped the gun and got caught !!!

Interesting how the snubbery is common with anything Obama.

Federal Judge Issues ‘Extraordinary’ Order Sanctioning the DOJ for Misconduct in Executive Amnesty Litigation


In one of the most stinging court opinions I’ve ever read, federal district judge Andrew Hanon blasted Department of Justice officials for misleading the court during the course of executive amnesty litigation. What did the DOJ do? Here are the court’s words:


In summary, this Court and opposing counsel were misled both in writing and in open court on multiple occasions as to when the Defendants would begin to implement the Secretary’s 2014 DHS Directive establishing the Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents (“DAPA”) program and amending the DACA program. Opposing counsel and this Court were assured that no action would be taken implementing the 2014 DHS Directive until February 18, 2015. Counsel for the Government made these assurances on the record on December 19, 2014, and in open court on January 15, 2015. Similar misrepresentations were made in pleadings filed on January 14, 2015, [Doc. No. 90 at 3] and even after the injunction issued, on February 23, 2015. [Doc. No. 150]. For example, on February 23, 2015, the Government lawyers wrote that: “DHS was to begin accepting requests for modified DACA on February 18, 2015.”5 [Doc. No. 150 at 7]. This representation was made despite the fact that in actuality the DHS had already granted or renewed over 100,000 modified DACA applications using the 2014 DHS Directive.


In other words, the Obama administration launched its executive amnesty program behind the court’s back, and lied about it — ultimately granting lawful residence to more than 100,000 illegal immigrants until the court halted the program with an injunction.


Arrogance INC.

Judge Hanen has ordered all DOJ attorneys appearing in any federal court of the 26 affected states to attend three hour mandatory ethics classes, this year and every year, for a period of five years. In addition Judge Hanen has given Loretta Lynch 60 days to file a written response outlining what specific corrective action she is personally taking to ensure all DOJ attorneys are truthful and honest:

Yep.
He has a pen, a phone, a Department of Justice.... and no rule book.

He has no problem with his DOJ lying to the courts.... what else is not beneath him?

ETA:
Think about that just for a moment folks......

Department of Justice



And he thinks it is ok for that department to LIE to the courts?

Right...and Obama's name comes up regularly when the Left is talking about future Supreme Court Justices.

This guy is plain scary. Get him timed-out of the White House - and never let him near the reigns again!

Neither the DOJ or DHS has jack snip to do with immigration.

That is a complete, and separate organization that is suppose to handle that.

The DOJ is tasked with upholding the LAWS of this country.

The DHS was supposedly created to PROTECT the homeland.

The administration needed a smack down on this.

Amnesty is ludicrous to begin with.

Does a mass shooter get a free gun for breaking the law ?

Hell no they don't.

NO ONE gets a prize for breaking the LAW. Except when it comes to ILLEGAL immigrants.

ILLEGAL immigrants should be no different.

Since LAW is the entire foundation of this country.

So when we going to hear about perjury charges? This appears to be lying to the court. The lawyers should be disbarred and the goverment reps fired.

Cheers - Dave

Here's the 28 page order by the Judge.
www.scribd.com...

These DOJ lawyers lied directly to this Judge and the 26 states for months. They said not 1 application was being processed under the updated DACA, all they while doing it behind their backs. It wasn't until the number reached 100,000 that the DOJ came clean.

The ridiculousness of the ethics violations unbelievable. The Judge says even brings up Miracle on 34th Street to relate how even a fictional child in 1947 knew it was common sense to tell the truth in court.



The Court next turns to the topic of candor. Candor in court is such a self-evident concept that it is almost too mundane to discuss in an opinion. Indeed, when one addresses the need for honesty in court, it is hard not to speak in platitudes. It is such a truism that all Americans, if not individuals worldwide, are familiar with the requirement. This concept is so pervasive that it can be seen in almost any aspect of society. One example that easily comes to mind is that drawn from the beloved movie Miracle on 34th Street when the young child of the assistant district attorney is called to the witness stand:

Mr. Gailey: Will Thomas Mara please take the stand? (Attorney for Mr. Kringle)

Thomas Mara Sr.: Who, me? (Assistant District Attorney

Mr. Gailey: Thomas Mara Jr. (Spectators Murmuring)

Tommy Mara Jr.: Hello, Daddy.

Mr. Gailey: Here you are, Tommy.

The Judge: Tommy, you know the difference between telling the truth and telling a lie, don’t you?

Tommy Mara Jr.: Gosh, everybody knows you shouldn’t tell a lie, especially in court. (Spectators Chuckling)

The Judge: Proceed, Mr. Gailey.

The need to tell the truth, especially in court, was obvious to a fictional young Tommy Mara Jr. in 1947, yet there are certain attorneys in the Justice Department who apparently have not received that message, or more likely have just decided they are above such trivial concepts. Regardless of the motivation behind the conduct, multiple misrepresentations over a period of months both in pleadings and in open court cannot be ignored—especially when, as here, they were made knowingly and had the effect of depriving the millions of individuals represented by the Plaintiff States of a valuable remedy.

Wow.

When the department of justice attorneys are ORDERED to go to ethics classes, we have a serious problem. (Not that we don't already, but wow.)

And, anything in the MSM covering any of this? (I'm guessing a big NO.)

3 hours of Ethic classes. roflmao
Why not call in a Catholic priest and perform and exorcism?

Meh, good for the judge for calling them out on their criminal behavior. Too damn bad the justice system only punishes us little people while allowing those in power to get away with anything.

Would this be the very same Department of Justice which ran interference with the FBI for someone who is under criminal investigation by determining that there were some questions that were "off limits" in the course of their investigation?

The same DoJ which is supposed who has the following as their mission statement:


To enforce the law and defend the interests of the United States according to the law; to ensure public safety against threats foreign and domestic; to provide federal leadership in preventing and controlling crime; to seek just punishment for those guilty of unlawful behavior; and to ensure fair and impartial administration of justice for all Americans.


About DOJ

I don't know whether to laugh or cry any more...

Revoke any amnesty measures granted after the lies were told.

That's restoring justice.

Judge Hanen has had this in his teeth for a while. Seems that he likes to give it a shake every once in a while. I had looked up his latest a few days ago and press reporting had gone cold.

Glad to see he's in the news again. I wonder what he's going to do when 0bama and his court jesters are no longer seated on a throne.
