Sanchez issues statement on Immigration Ruling by 5th Circuit Court



WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez (CA-46), senior member of the House Homeland Security Committee, released the following statement regarding the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit decision to maintain an injunction on the Deferred Action for Parents of Americans (DAPA) and the expanded Deferred Action for Childhood (DACA) Arrivals program: 

“This upsetting decision by the Fifth Circuit is yet another setback for our dysfunctional immigration system.  

“DAPA and the expansion of DACA would have allowed many families to come out of the shadows. Separating hard-working immigrant families from their loved ones and DREAMERS from the only country they’ve ever known hurts our country and leaves our families, businesses and economy hanging in the balance. 

“President Obama’s executive actions followed precedents set in the last 50 years by Presidents from both parties. The battle to fix our broken immigration system now seems to be on a course to the Supreme Court. America deserves a fair and just immigration system. 

“Blocking comprehensive immigration reform stunts America’s progress. We cannot rely on the courts to correct this injustice. Congress must take action to pass comprehensive immigration reform and voters must make their voices heard at the ballot box.”

The Obama Administration has appealed this decision to the US SupremeC ourt.

    Last I checked, Sanchez is and has been a member of Congress for quite some time. When she crys out that “We cannot rely on the courts to correct this injustice. Congress must take action to pass comprehensive immigration reform…”, where are the bills on immigration which she has submitted? Perhaps if she were to spend less time wailing about the Donald and NBC and more time offering legislation, both her district and our country would be better off.

      Hey smarty pants, you miss the part about her being part of a minority in a body where the majority won’t even touch the issue? Well, there’s that.

        There’s nothing stopping any member of Congress from submitting a bill Vern.

        • November 12, 2015 at 12:52 pm

          I imagine you don’t follow things much. There was a fine bill sent over from the Senate which the House leadership won’t even look at; there’s no reason for Loretta to have to re-invent the wheel.

          And here I thought YOU were the Loretta kiss-up. Best way to get Dan to go after someone is for Vern to defend ’em, and vice-versa. Petty dude.

          • November 12, 2015 at 1:08 pm

            actually, Loretta ought to offer a bill that has her name attached to it. Sometimes, you have to re-invent the wheel Vern to break out from the crowd. It would help her senate bid

          • November 12, 2015 at 1:09 pm

            and as far as Kiss ups goes, no one could ever match the love you and Greg have for Tom Tait

        Vern, I don’t know if CalTrans counts but thank you for your service!!!

        This was a joke designed to bait “crazy Greg” out of the self imposed “straight-jacket” and back to his incendiary ways.

        It’s only a matter of time……..

          A note, Mr. Diamond’s comments are now on moderation. He is allowed to comment here but his regular use of profanity lately is the reason for the move. So please don’t bait him.

    To me. ONLY ME?? (hopefully others), I consider Greg Diamond DANGEROUS.

    He is the Adam Lansa, Kip Kinkle, Jared Laughner etc…… kind of guy. Desperate for attention, on meds to even out his moods, shows up at events doing “puppet shows” or clamoring for press.

    How far will he go? If my wife and child met at the Chapman hall and there was a chance Greg Diamond was “displeased” those family mbers would stay home!

    Greg is a nutjob. Is he dangerous? I don’t know. I’d hate to find out on the KTLA news.

    • November 13, 2015 at 8:34 am

      Yes, he’s desperate for attention. His current obsession is drawing district lines in Brea now that his multiple plans were turned down in Anaheim. On the plus side, he’s blogging less because he says his legal practice is busier which is a good thing. I don’t believe Greg is a danger to anyone. Lots of bluster.

        First I’ve heard of Jabba’s newest obsession. I can’t imagine that idea could gain any traction in Brea.

        I will say Jabba’s absence has been like a breath of fresh air. Placing him on moderation is actually an act of kindness beyond anything he might deserve.

        • November 14, 2015 at 1:01 pm

          Wow – Greg doesn’t need to be 1) a topic of the post, or 2) present on the thread, to become a subject of discussion here – a testament to my colleague’s enduring importance on the OC political scene!

            Go back to your Circle Jerk blog Vern.

          I think Dan meant Buena Park.

          • November 16, 2015 at 5:27 pm

            Oh snap; I did…..typing fast while a call came in. But to be honest, Diamond is going to show up submit a plan because he feels he’s an expert at this sort of thing

            • November 17, 2015 at 3:47 pm

              I’d forgotten how often Dan confuses Brea with Buena Park. Jeez, does he know how ignorant that is? How distant, and extremely different, the two cities are. But to him it’s all just “up north there somewhere.”

              He should read an actual OC blog some time.

              • November 17, 2015 at 4:33 pm

                I’ve forgotten how often Vern claims two residences in OC. Sue me Vern. I meant to type Buena Park and Brea came out and I was off to Vegas for the weekend.

                • November 17, 2015 at 4:46 pm

                  You’ve done it before. You went on and on about the “Brea cops” who busted Paul Lucas.

                • November 17, 2015 at 9:08 pm

                  So I’ve done it twice. If I do it two more times, I’ll your number of DUIs. How’s the Dunn revision coming? Will the campaign demand to review it before you publish?

        Funny how his “legal work” builds up and his “blogging” settles down after he suffers a loss. The latest being is unsolicited attack on Gustavo, where the tried and true defenders, Ryan and Zenger turned on him and his employer, Cynthia Ward said she would NEVER trust him with her children.

        See a pattern here? Greg loses, he retreats and falls into depression. Greg see’s however minor victory and he pounces. Call it Bi-Polar, bullying or explain it away by sayng “I have been busy in my legal practice” the trend continues and the lows are getting LOWER for Mr. Diamond. I hope he can find a life/work/societial balance.

          What a dick and loser Diamond is. Nelson is a dick too

            Great blog, Dan! Quality stuff here. You must be proud.
