A federal judge issued a temporary injunction against President Barack Obama’s immigration reform programs on Feb. 26.
U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen granted 26 states’ request to temporarily stop the expansion of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals and the Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents programs.
Hanen issued the injunction to enable states to avoid irreparable harm as the case moves through the courts.
U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh C. Johnson stated the department would comply with the order and not accept applications for the program as it planned to do starting Feb 18.
Johnson also stated the department would appeal the court’s decision.
