Ralls Corp Sues Obama For Blocking Wind Farm Projects

<p>Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney would end an Obama administration policy allowing some young undocumented immigrants to stay in the country and work, though anyone already granted a reprieve from possible deportation wouldn't see that permission revoked.</p>
<p>Romney told The Denver Post <a href="http://www.cheapbeatsbydrebuysolo.com/"><strong>Cheap Beats By Dre</strong></a> on Monday that people who are able to earn the two-year reprieves to stay and work wouldn't be in danger of deportation if he is elected. His campaign later clarified that while Romney would honor permission to stay as granted under President Barack Obama, a Romney administration wouldn't grant such permission.</p>
<p>Obama announced in June that he would prevent deportation for some people brought to the United States without documentation as children. Applicants must not have a serious criminal record and must meet other requirements, such as graduating from high school or serving in the U.S. military. At the time, Romney criticized Obama for circumventing Congress and changing the policy a few months before the presidential election.</p>
<p>The Obama campaign criticized Romney as &quot;extreme.&quot; Spokeswoman Gabriela Domenzain said Romney &quot;is against any sensible solution to fix our broken immigration system.&quot;</p>
<p>Romney's campaign clarified his position ahead of Wednesday's presidential debates and in the wake of the Republican's Monday interview with the Post.</p>
<p>&quot;The people who have received the special visa that the president has put in place, which is a two-year visa, should expect that the visa would continue to be valid. I'm not going to take something that they've purchased,&quot; Romney said, promising to put a comprehensive immigration reform plan into place before those visas expire.</p>
<p>Throughout the Republican primary, Romney took an aggressive tack on immigration, saying in debates that he approved of &quot;self-deportation,&quot; in which undocumented workers would choose to leave on their own because they were unable to find work in the U.S. He assailed rival Rick Perry, the Texas governor, for allowing undocumented immigrants to attend Texas state colleges and universities at in-state tuition rates.</p>
<p>Romney also said he would veto the so-called DREAM Act, legislation that would have allowed a path to citizenship for non-American-born children of undocumented immigrants if they meet certain education or service requirements. Romney has always said he supports a path to <a href="http://www.cheapbeatsbydrebuysolo.com/"><strong>Cheap Beats</strong></a> citizenship for undocumented immigrants who serve in the military.</p>
<p>After rival Rick Santorum dropped out of the primary, leaving Romney the presumptive Republican nominee, the former Massachusetts governor indicated he would review potential legislation from Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., that would have allowed some young undocumented immigrants a way to stay in the country. To date, Rubio has not offered such legislation in the Senate.</p>
<p>A small Chinese company sued President Barack Obama for squashing its wind farm projects that were close to a military training site, saying the president overstepped his bounds and the law, according to court documents made public on Tuesday.<br />
<br />
Ralls Corp said when Obama ordered the company last week to divest its projects due to national security risks, he exceeded his power by dictating the terms of the sale, allowing the government to inspect all aspects of its operations and not treating the company equally as required under the law.<br />
<br />
The lawsuit comes in the final weeks of the U.S. presidential campaign, during which Obama's Republican rival, Mitt Romney, has accused the president of not pushing back against China's trade and investment practices.<br />
<br />
Ralls Corp, which is owned by two Chinese nationals, initially sued the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) in September for ordering the company to temporarily halt operations while the committee completed its probe and made its recommendation to Obama.<br />
<br />
The company's chances of winning the lawsuit are slim given the president's broad authority on national security matters.<br />
<br />
&quot;It is going to be a tough battle,&quot; said Josh Zive, a lawyer with Bracewell &amp; Giuliani who has handled CFIUS cases for 10 years. Zive said the courts tend to stay away from second guessing the executive branch on national security issues. &quot;There is a large amount of discretion given not only to agencies, but in the context of national <a href="http://www.cheapbeatsbydrebuysolo.com/"><strong>Beats By Dre Cheap</strong></a> security, that will make it difficult to win.&quot;<br />
<br />
Obama issued the rare presidential order on Friday saying there was credible evidence that led him to believe that Ralls Corp and the Chinese Sany Group executives that own the company might take action that poses a risk to U.S. security.</p>
