President Obama continues his fight for Executive Action and will take it to the Supreme Court if necessary.
The community continues to wait for the Fifth Circuit court of appeals to make a decision regarding the implementation of DAPA. Legal experts agree that President Obama’s executive order will go into effect soon.
On February 16th Judge Hanen issued a temporary injunction against DAPA. This order will remain in place until a reviewing court decides to overturn it. On April 17th, the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals heard arguments for and against overturning Judge Hanen’s order. The Fifth circuit has not yet issued a decision.
Many experts believe that the Fifth Circuit will overturn Judge Hanen’s order and those who qualify will be able to apply for DAPA soon.
If the Fifth Circuit does not overturn Judge Hanen’s order then the case will proceed to the United States Supreme Court for further review.
The President’s executive action on immigration is legal under his constitutional authority to set priorities for enforcement. It is not a surprise that the opposition will fight to block the President’s order. However we soon should here from the Court of Appeals.
