In July, Texas Federal District court Judge Andrew Hanen ordered top officials with the Department of Homeland Security — including Secretary Jeh Johnson — to appear in person in his court in Brownsville to show why they should not be held in contempt for violating an injunction issued against Obama’s executive amnesty order.
Well, he just excused Johnson from his court appearance.
Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson won’t be hauled into federal court to explain his department’s botched execution of Obama’s deportation amnesty, but the judge said Tuesday he still doesn’t consider the issue settled.
Judge Andrew S. Hanen had threatened to force Mr. Johnson to appear personally later this month to explain why thousands of tentative three-year amnesty applications were approved in violation of the court’s injunction, but after Homeland Security managed to recapture almost all of the erroneous amnesty cards, Judge Hanen relaxed his stance.
Still, the judge said the hearing will go ahead as slated on Aug. 19, and Mr. Johnson’s lawyers will have to be ready to explain why they haven’t completely solved the problem yet.
“The court does not consider mere substantial compliance, after an order has been in place for six months, to be acceptable and neither should counsel,” Judge Hanen wrote in his order Tuesday.
So much for Hanen’s bluster and bullshit about hauling Johnson’s ass to court.
After the Obama regime lied about suspending the release of spawns of illegal alien parents, Hanen expressed regret that he had fallen for it and ‘felt like an idiot’.
He may as well get used to feeling like an idiot. Don’t expect the Obama regime to answer for anything.
