(Conservative Review) -- Tired of our country being flooded with too many refugees from the Middle East and illegal immigrants from all over the world? How about creating our own Brexit?
While many conservatives are celebrating the deadlocked Supreme Court decision on Obama’s “DAPA” amnesty, resulting in the 5th Circuit’s injunction against the illegal act remaining in effect, now is the time to keep up the pressure on Congress to act more than ever.

To begin with, the effects of Judge Hanen’s injunction are less consequential than what is widely perceived. The lawsuit only dealt with one amnesty and it only stopped Obama from issuing work permits and Social Security cards to DAPA recipients. Obviously, a court has no ability to stop Obama from suspending deportations. In fact, Obama already announced that he will continue with his policy of ordering immigration agents not to follow the law and deport most illegal immigrants. And even as it relates to the affirmative benefits, the Social Security cards for DACA recipients were not a party to the lawsuit and will continue to be issued. Obama has already illegally granted at least 700,000 Social Security cards to people who have no constitutional right to be in this country.
