Texas Judge’s Decision Halts Expanded Deferred Action

A Texas judge’s decision on February 16th forced the Department of Homeland Security to halt plans to begin accepting applications for Expanded Deferred Action which was planned to begin Wednesday, February 18th. The judges’ decision also could delay the planned implementation of Deferred Action for Parents (DAPA) which was planned to start mid-May. The Obama administration issued a press release stating that it is confident that it will prevail in the legal fight over the use of executive orders used to implement his deferred action initiatives.
