Federal Judge Blocked Executive Action on Immigration

Obama and Immigration Judge

02/18/2015


President Obama’s executive actions to optimize administrative resources encountered another block. That hindrance originated in the Southern District of Texas. On 02/17/2015, Judge Andrew Hanen issued an injunction to stop all enforcement of executive action on immigration. This move allowed 26 states to think and craft policies for or against President’s actions.

Judge Hanen was nominated during the term of George W. Bush and received commission in 2002. His district covered southern half of Texas, wherein immigration policy has always been hotly contested. Large cities in his district includes El Paso and Houston, both with large numbers of beneficiaries immediately affected by President’s executive actions.

Judge Hanen’s legal reasoning to issue an injunction was straightforward. To him, neither the President or the Department of Homeland Security was given the Constitutional discretion to grant legal presence to 4.3 million removable immigrants.

He agreed with the complaints that the current executive action might incur irreversible errors and irreparable harms. However, he clarified that Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival is not within the reach of this injunction.

White House has expressed a clear stance to support the executive action. “The genie would be impossible to be put back into the bottle,” said Josh Ernest, the White House press secretary. Hanen himself, likewise, resolved to pursue his end, as he wrote, “this is not the end of the inquiry; in fact, it is really the tip of the iceberg.”
