On Tuesday in Pittsburgh, US District Court Judge Arthur Schwab ruled that the Barack Obama immigration executive order is unconstitutional. The federal judge issued the rule in a criminal case pending against an illegal immigrant from Honduras. Judge Schwab ruled that Obama′s executive action amounted to an ″unilateral legislative action″, well beyond any presidential powers authorized by the United States Constitution. The judge also said the executive order violated the ′Take Care Clause′, which requires the president to ′take due care′ while executing laws. Naturally, the White House and Justice Department reaction is that the judge erred and the ruling will be overturned. Liberal legal pundits are pointing out that Judge Schwab is a Republican and is misinterpreting the separation of powers.
