The Obama administration lost one and won one Tuesday in federal court decisions on the president’s executive actions regarding the enforcement of the nation’s immigration laws. A federal judge in Texas turned down the administration’s request to lift the stay he had put on President Obama’s executive action of November 2014, deferring deportation of an estimated five million illegal immigrants and allowing work permits for those who qualify. Meanwhile, the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans upheld a lower court ruling dismissing a suit against the administration over Obama’s June 2012 policy directive on Deferred Action on Childhood Arrivals, allowing illegal immigrants who came to the United States as children to apply for legal status and gain work permits.
Judge Andrew S. Hanen of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas refused to lift the stay he issued in February on Obama’s November executive action, saying implementation should be delayed while awaiting court rulings on the constitutionality of the president’s directive to the Department of Homeland Security.
