Protestors marched together in Austin on February 21 from Texas’ State Capitol to the Governor’s Mansion to express their displeasure over an injunction that was ordered against President Barack Obama’s new national comprehensive immigration reform measure, KXAN reported.
Austin Mayor Steve Adler declared his full support for the protestors – many of whom were immigrants themselves – and along with them urged Governor Greg Abbott to join them in their cause, saying, “if we take people out of the shadows, then we’re going to be stronger as a community.”
Other Texas leaders, however, have differing opinions. For instance, Round Rock Representative John Rice Carter said the judge was right to stop Obama’s order, claiming the president overreached his powers.
A federal district court in Texas issued an injunction against Obama’s executive action; the executive action effectively delayed the deportation certain illegal immigrants in the country.

United States President Barrack Obama accused critics and opponents of his national comprehensive immigration reform measure as people who are not thinking about the “human consequences” of deporting certain immigrants, the News & Advance reported.
On February 4th at the Oval Office, Obama met with six young immigrants who are in danger of being deported back to their countries should the initiative passed by the Republican-led House of Representatives get approval in both houses of Congress. Obama said he feels for the human casualties that might be affected by this move.
Should the proposed legislation come to pass, it would overturn Obama’s executive decision to minimize deportations and allow some illegal immigrants to work in the United States. Obama, however, would likely veto the legislation.

The actions will effectively prevent deportation of 5 million people who are considered illegal immigrants. KeyeTV reports that Texas is the primary state behind this move.
Hanen earlier accused the Obama administration of criminal “child smuggling” by allowing the children of parents living in the United States illegally to come to the country.
The President’s decision was announced in November 2014, with Obama criticizing Congress’ lack of action on a national comprehensive immigration law. He said that the lack of action forced him to declare his new provisions on the issue, exercised via his presidential powers.

President Barack Obama was scheduled to present new executive proposals for Congress during the first week of the new year on home ownership, tertiary education, and job growth – all of which fell on the same page as the proposals he presented during the first week of January 2014, according to an Associated Press article.
The Republicans, which make up most of the House of Representatives, have a different agenda for the start of 2015. They have their own set of policies on foreign relations, the environment, and one of the hottest topics in legislation recently, immigration.

United States District Court Judge Arthur Schwab ruled o December 16 in Pennsylvania that President Barack Obama’s executive immigration order is unconstitutional, according to the Washington Post.
According to Schwab, the order “violates the separation of powers provided for in the United States Constitution as well as the Take Care Clause.” The Take Care Clause is simultaneously something that imposes a “duty” on the president and something that can be classified as the source of presidential “power.”
Schwab’s ruling, however, does not directly challenge the executive decision made by the president; it merely serves as legal bullet for the immigration order’s critics. The impact that Schwab’s ruling hopes to achieve is as of the moment unclear.
The immigration order, which seeks to grant at least 5 million illegal aliens in the country legal status, has faced fire from critics all over the country. Republicans from the House of Representatives filed a bill on December 4 to declare the executive order null and void.

According to recent reports, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is preparing to possibly order the creation of 34 million blank work permits and green cards, Fox News reported on October 21.
Some worry that this move suggests the Obama administration is getting ready to make all illegal immigrants legal in one sweep. The spokesman for the Federation for American Immigration Reform Bob Dane voiced his concerns. Dane mentioned that no amount of federal employees would be able to handle background checks for that many immigrants, implying that dangerous people could immediately become legal residents of America.
Despite the preparations by the USCIS, nothing official has been announced by the administration.

Austin-based Mexican consulate Rosalba Ojeda issued a statement urging the mutual cooperation between Mexico and Texas after tensions mounted between the Texas and Mexican governments, the Austin-American Statesman reported on September 13.
Ojeda suggested that a recent statement from Perry’s office should be seen as an avenue for open dialogue between the two political bodies. The statement, given by Perry representative Lucy Nashed, asked that Mexico stop challenging Perry’s decisions and rather help solve the problem of unaccompanied minors illegally crossing the border.
Prior to Ojeda’s diplomatic intervention, President Enrique Peña Nieto of Mexico condemned troop deployment at the border in an interview with a Mexico City newspaper. Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst replied in an offended manner that leaving the border open to illegal immigration and drug activity would be a great threat to Texas citizens.
