DAPA and Expanded DACA struck down by the 5th Circuit

What happened and what happens next?

On May 26, 2015, in a 2-1 decision, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit denied the Obama administration’s request to lift the hold on the president’s executive actions on immigration. Had the Obama administration’s request been granted, persons who qualified for Deferred Action for Parents (DAPA) as well as for the expanded form of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) would have been eligible to apply.

The action was brought by 26 states specifically to be heard where the most conservative, anti-Obama, anti-immigrant judges sit. And the District Court who made the initial ruling as well as the two judges who denied the Obama administration’s request are two of the most conservative judges on the most conservative court in the United States.

Like DACA, there are restrictions for persons on criminal and security grounds, for example. The children must have been born on or before November 20, 2014. Like DACA, the applicants can apply at any time.
