Executive Actions on Appeal

Executive Actions on Appeal


Executive Action

The executive action was challenged in a Texan district, and now the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals. The Circuit Court in New Orleans will hear the arguments on April 17th. Judge Hanen, the district judge who issued the stay on executive action still has to make decision on whether to temporarily lift the stay during the appeal.

Regardless of the stay, more than 108,000 people have received temporary reprieves from deportation and deportation proceedings for three years. The attorney from the Department of Justice must justify this confusion while seeking a temporary lift of the injunction.

States that seek initiated the administrative review are: Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Maine, Michigan, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, West Virginia and Wisconsin.

A sharp observer would notice that the states requesting a block on executive actions are mostly Republican states, and not border states. For states that already have reaped the benefits of high-skilled immigrants and past immigration reforms, such as California, New York and Texas, are not on the list.

A more ironic side effect is that cities and mayors, many of them from the states seeking blocks, filed amicus brief on behalf of the Obama administration. Such states and counties include:

 Alexandria, VA,

Allentown, PA

Atlanta, GA

Austin, TX

State governments, unfortunately, must act in sync with national politics. Cities and counties, obviously, are more pragmatic to embrace the benefits of immigration. There is still hope, from some states, and mostly cities.
