WASHINGTON – On Friday the Obama Administration said it plans to ask a judge to allow for the continuance of President Obama’s plans to offer protection from deportation to millions of undocumented immigrants.
The Department of Justice plans to file a motion by Monday, requesting that the federal judge in Texas remove his order that is currently blocking newly announced immigration actions. If Judge Hanen denies the request, the Obama Administration is expected to file an appeal with the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals and possibly later the United States Supreme Court.
The newly announced programs expanded on the President’s 2012 announcement of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program to include new regulations as well as the inclusions of a program known as Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents (DAPA).
USCIS will not begin accepting DACA requests under the expanded regulations as previously planned; however, individuals eligible for DACA under the 2012 regulations may still apply.
