Judge Throws Out Arizona Immigration Suit Against Obama

A federal judge has thrown out a lawsuit filed against President Barack Hussein Obama's amnesty order on the grounds it was unconstitutional and bypassed congress:

Judge Beryl Howell of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia denied the demand by Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio for a preliminary injunction to halt the policies. {...}

Arpaio's lawsuit said the reforms, which eased the threat of deportation for about 4.7 million undocumented immigrants, amounted to an amnesty and would encourage more people to cross the border illegally.

Beryl's 33-page decision said Arpaio did not meet the legal requirements to qualify as a person of standing in bringing the case on constitutional grounds

Oh, and Judge Howell? She's a loyal apparatchnik,  was one of the radical judges shoved through by President Obama to the DC Circuit Court using Majority Leader Harry Reid's nuclear option. A look at her background shows all the signs of a radical 'progressive,' which of course is why she was appointed in the first place.

I'm certain Judge Howell was totally unbiased and based her ruling strictly on the legal facts of the case and not her personal politics, aren't you?

Actually, she didn't rule on the legal facts of the case. She denied the injunction on the grounds that the top law enforcement official in an Arizona border county heavily affected by illegal migration 'had no standing.'

No, according to this judge in spite of his sworn duty to uphold the law and protect the citizens of Maricopa County, Sheriff Arpaio had no right to go to the courts and seek an injunction to stop policies that are directly impacting his ability to do so.

That's pretty much what we've come to.Justice is just whatever the Left says it is..and subject to change whenever it suits their agenda.
