Attorneys for the Obama administration acknowledged late Thursday that they had broken a Texas court’s injunction on immigration by issuing thousands of work permits, and could face possible sanctions in the case.
The acknowledgment was filed just before midnight in the Brownsville, Texas, court of U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen, reports The Washington Times.
Hanen on Feb. 16 issued the injunction to temporarily block President Barack Obama’s executive action on immigration, ruling in favor of about two dozen states that are claiming in court that the president acted beyond his authority in issuing the order.
The Justice Department’s attorneys told the court that the Department of Homeland Security, which has been officially named as the case’s defendant, informed them on Wednesday that about 2,000 applications for three-year work programs were issued after Hanen ordered the injunction.

He’s a madman running amok
Note the royal “we.” America went from 200 years of “We the people” to “We, Obama” in the blink of an eye.
The internet, bullets, and now this — and that’s just today.
