Supreme Court Won’t Extend Filing Deadline in Suit Against Obama Deadline
“The U.S. Supreme Court rejected Texas’s request for a 30-day extension to file its opening brief on President Barack Obama’s deferred-deportation program, in a move that leaves open the possibility the high court will rule on the plan next year. The justices gave Texas an eight-day delay, heeding calls from the Obama administration to keep the case on track for a potential decision by the end of the court’s term in June. The administration is seeking review after a federal appeals court blocked the program,” Bloomberg News says.

Limbaugh: New Information on Refugees
“So Dr. Carson goes on and talks to ‘em, and he says most of them have told him they don’t want to come here. They want to stay in their home country. They’d rather be able to go back home. Home is home, folks. I don’t care where you’re from, home is home. I don’t care where you go, you always look forward to getting back home. Well, there are exceptions to everything, but it’s pretty much standard human behavior. And it makes perfect sense to me. Regarding all of this, the border, some incredible news about borders and immigration from all over the place,” said Rush Limbaugh.
