Remember that Friday’s argument was only to decide if DAPA and expanded DACA can proceed while the appeal process from Judge Hanen’s injunction takes place. This appeal is still strongly favored to end in a victory for the program. This appeal is expedited and should conclude in a matter of months.
If the 5th Circuit rules against the administration’s request for the emergency stay, the administration has the option of simply working through the appeal process or seeking the emergency stay from the U.S. Supreme Court.
So once the 5th Circuit rules on the motion argument from Friday, stay tuned for more to come. The fight for common sense immigration enforcement and basic fairness for immigrant families continues!
