Austin families await Supreme Court decision on immigration case
Posted on Thursday, May 5th, 2016 at 7:00 pm
Families in Austin are eager to hear the result of the Supreme Court’s decision in United States v. Texas, a case which challenges the DACA and DAPA immigration reforms enforced by President Barack Obama.
The Obama administration asked the Supreme Court to review its 2014 immigration plans that would allow the stay of 5 million immigrants in the country and make it easier for them to obtain work permits. In January, the justices said they were open to overturning lower court rulings that blocked the plans from taking effect. Jose Nunez is one of those awaiting the results of the hearing. He is protected by Deferred Action for Parents of Americans (DAPA), after moving to the United States in 2004. He currently works as a plumber.
