Conservative icon PHYLLIS SCHLAFLY is available for interviews to discuss her latest column below.
We just won a stunning victory against Obama on immigration!
This morning the U.S. Supreme Court delivered a spectacular victory to us on the all-important immigration issue, by deadlocking 4-4 in the case of United States v. Texas, 15-674. This decision leaves in place the nationwide injunction against the 2014 scheme by Obama to grant rights to illegal aliens for them to stay and work here. Hooray!
Obama’s program would have allowed four million illegal aliens to remain in our country and take jobs away from Americans. But 26 states sued to stop it. A courageous federal judge in Brownsville, Texas, issued an injunction against Obama to prevent his program from taking effect, and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit upheld his ruling.
Liberals were confident they would win this case on appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court. The tragic loss of Justice Scalia from the 9-member High Court weakened our side on this issue.
But several of our Eagles did not give up. Eagle Forum Education & Legal Defense Fund filed an amicus brief to stand up for our sovereignty and against the liberal plan to change our country through illegal immigration. Many business and church groups, along with nearly 200 members of Congress, were on the wrong side of this issue. Several otherwise conservative groups were notably absent.
This morning we prevailed, and the liberal media are in shock. Obama has suffered one of the worst setbacks of his entire tenure. His illegal plan to fundamentally change the United States through illegal immigration remains blocked.
With your help, we will continue to block and roll back the illegal immigration that liberals are so determined to push on our country to change it. As Ann Coulter has pointed out, if we were to lose on this issue, then we would lose on every other issue too. Today we won big.
