Judge Nap: 'Rare Ruling Against Obama Could Delay Amnesty Forever'

Cruz Tells Daughter of Illegal Immigrants She'd Face Deportation


The Supreme Court announced this morning that the justices will review President Obama's executive orders granting amnesty to as many as 5 million illegal immigrants. 

Judge Andrew Napolitano reacted this morning on America's Newsroom, explaining that oral arguments are likely to take place in April, with a ruling coming down in the last week of June. 

He noted that it would be just three weeks before the Republican National Convention July 18-21. 

The challenge to Obama's executive orders came from 26 states, led by Texas. A lower court then blocked the amnesty plan from going into effect and the ruling was upheld by a federal appeals court.

The Obama administration went to the Supreme Court last fall, asking the justices to review the injunction.

Obama argued that people who have been in the U.S. for more than five years and who have children who are in the country legally must be allowed to "come out of the shadows."

Napolitano said that the lower court essentially said to Obama in its ruling that he "can't make up law."
