Austin, Texas – On Monday, Texas federal Judge Andrew S. Hanen ruled in a 123-page decision to grant an injunction of President Barack H. Obama’s executive action on immigration allowing 4M of undocumented parents of DACA immigrants expansion to get state and federal benefits and to be allowed to stay in the U.S. was unconstitutional.
Judge Hanen’s ruling doesn’t not enjoin the 2012 DACA executive action by Obama for undocumented students to stay in the U.S. by renewing their stay every two years and be allowed to get work permits, but only it’s expansion of the Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents (DAPA), which was approved by Obama on November 20, 2014. DAPA was suppose to take effect on Tuesday.
Texas Governor Greg Abbot (R) filed a lawsuit against Obama’s executive DAPA action on immigration and 26 other states joined the lawsuit. Abbot tweeted on late Monday, “The rule of law has been upheld- President Obama’s Executive Amnesty has been ruled unconstitutional…Federal Judge just granted my request to halt Obama’s Executive Amnesty Order Nationwide.”
