Appeals Court decision a major blow to DAPA

Posted on Sunday, November 15th, 2015 at 5:29 pm    

An appeals court dealt a major blow to President Barack Obama’s executive action to delay deportation of more than 4 million undocumented immigrants a year after it was issued, effectively upholding a preliminary injunction which was filed by 25 states and was granted in February to block implementation of the measure.

In its decision, released last Tuesday, November 10, the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, led by Circuit Judge Jerry Smith, held that the President’s initiative, called the Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents (DAPA), “affects the states’ ‘quasi-sovereign’ interests by imposing substantial pressure on them to change their laws, which provide for issuing drivers’ licenses to some aliens and subsidizing those licenses.”

This decision marks yet another example of the struggles immigrants face when attempting to gain citizenship in America. At the Law Office of William Jang, PLLC, our Austin legal team of immigration attorneys understands the complex process of gaining legal citizenship, and we want to help you through that ordeal so that you and your family may begin your new life in the United States.

They are always on top of documents that needs to be collected, due dates and also preparing you for anything extra non top of what is required. William and his team are very experienced in working with the local and federal USCIS office. I would highly recommend them.
