Disciplinary Threat Scares DHS

Facing the possibility of disciplinary action, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson decided now’s a good time to comply with Rule of Law. Writing at National Review, Hans von Spakovsky reports that Johnson “has finally taken action to reverse the three-year work authorizations his department issued unlawfully to 2,500 illegal aliens.” Federal Judge Andrew Hanen issued an injunction temporarily banning the procedure in February and reaffirmed that ruling in April. But Obama’s aristocrats bureaucrats decided to grant thousands of illegal immigrants amnesty anyway, giving Judge Hanen no other choice but to order them to court. He insisted, “Each individual Defendant must attend and be prepared to show why he or she should not be held in contempt of Court.” That evidently rattled Johnson, promoting him to hastily reverse course. On Wednesday, von Spakovsky explains, “the Justice Department submitted to the court copies of two new ‘directives’ from Johnson to Leon Rodriguez, the director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. (Rodriguez is one of the officials named in Hanen’s July 7 order.) The first directive, dated July 10, three days after Hanen’s appearance order, directs Rodriguez to mail a ‘Notice of Intent to Terminate’ to the original 2,000 recipients of these unlawful work permits … The second directive, dated July 14, basically sets out the same plan of action to take care of the additional 500 illegal aliens who unlawfully received three-year EADs.” This administration is accustomed to bullying its way through the courts. Thanks to Judge Hanen, it’s hit a brick wall.
