Obama Administration to File Emergency Stay of Texas Decision Blocking New Deferred Action Initiatives

WebThe Obama administration is expected to file an emergency stay to move forward with the President’s executive action initiatives that will offer temporary deportation relief to millions of undocumented immigrants. Josh Earnest, White House press secretary, said the Department of Justice will file the stay with the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals by “Monday at the latest,” according to news reports. If it is granted, the stay would undo a Texas federal judge’s injunction from earlier this week that halted the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) expansion and the Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents (DAPA) program. Before the court order that stopped it, the federal government was supposed to begin accepting applications from immigrants who qualify under the expanded qualifications for DACA.

    The 5th CC won’t give it to him and he knows it..Just a dog and pony show for his loyal illegal alien voters..

  • Immigration a very complex topic. The donors who endorse the Republican Party to stop the Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Legal permanent Residents (DAPA) are some of the very employers who employ the illegal immigrants. There is an old saying, those who scream the loudest have something to hide. In Texas there are more than three million undocumented workers, the key word “workers.” Who hired them? Who benefits? These workers are: nonunion, have no protections, no workman compensation, no voting power, and no fair wages, but yet their quality of life is better than the one they crossed the borders or the ocean for and “they put money back into our economy.” food, housing, cable, cell phones, travel industry, energy and transport. Immigration is a very complex problem with no solution in a divided congress.
