It is perhaps curious that this blog even has an immigration topic, but those who push the idea that President Obama is foreign born seem to do so alongside a bias against the foreign born in general, and so we see anti-immigrant sentiment in many birthers, Orly Taitz and Joe Arpaio being prime examples.
Lest we forget, Orly Taitz and Joe Arpaio were plaintiffs in immigration cases challenging President Obama’s executive authority. Texas and 25 other states won a temporary injunction from federal district Judge Andrew S. Hanen that stopped the implementation of the President’s initiative on children who had entered the US illegally, and the Supreme Court is preparing to hear a Department of Justice request that the stay be lifted.
Judge Hanen is holding a hearing this afternoon (December 15) to determine whether Arpaio, Taitz and others will be permitted to intervene in the multi-state action.
Yesterday Orly Taitz cited the Politico article that mentions her possible intervention, but she does not say whether she is attending the hearing in Brownsville.
