The adminstration's immigration plan continues to be blocked by the courts ...

Earlier this year, a federal court in Texas stopped the current administration from implementing a decision to have the Department of Homeland Security exercise prosecutorial discretion to defer prosecution of immigration violations of an entire class of people. The Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit upheld the lower courts ruling and determined the administration overreached in its authority with its blanket use of prosecutorial discretion. As a result, the administration's plan to expand Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents (DAPA) remain stayed by the court and will require action further action by the Administration, the Supreme Court or Congress. The DACA program started in 2012 remains unaffected.
