Get the popcorn, as the fight over Obama’s executive amnesty plan just heated up:

More from the Los Angeles Times:

A federal judge threatened Thursday to sanction the U.S. Department of Justice if he finds that government lawyers misled him about the rollout of President Obama’s plan to shield up to five million people from the threat of deportation.

U.S. District Judge Andrew S. Hanen, visibly annoyed, confronted a U.S. deputy assistant attorney general over previous government assurances on the timing of the program.

He asked why he shouldn’t grant a discovery request for internal federal immigration documents, a request filed Thursday by 26 states that are suing over Obama’s executive actions on immigration.
