OBAMA Appeals Injunction of DAPA


Today, DOJ filed a petition for a writ of certiorari with the U.S. Supreme Court, asking the Court to overturn the injunction blocking DAPA and expanded DACA, and arguing that the 26 states challenging President Obama’s executive actions lack standing to do so. The petition states that if the Fifth Circuit’s majority ruling is left undisturbed, it “will allow states to frustrate the federal government’s enforcement of the nation’s immigration laws,” and “will force millions of people—who are not removal priorities under criteria the court conceded are valid, and who are parents of U.S. citizens and permanent residents—to continue to work off the books, without the option of lawful employment to provide for their families.”
