Federal court blocks Obama's immigration plan

Wednesday, May 27, 2015 | Tag Cloud

(Worthy News)-- A federal appeals court refused Tuesday to allow President Obama's program to protect millions of undocumented immigrants from deportation from going into effect, USA Today reported.

The decision by a three-judge panel of the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans adds another delay for the undocumented immigrants who could have been protected under the president's order. A federal judge blocked Obama's plan in February, hours before many of them were to start applying for the new program.

Obama announced in 2012 that he would allow undocumented immigrants brought to the country as children to register with the federal government in exchange for two-year protections from deportation. In November, he said Congress had yet to fix the nation's broken immigration system, so he would move to protect even more undocumented immigrants. --[wp_colorbox_media url="http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2015/05/26/obama-immigration-blocked-federal-appeals-court/27969883/" type="iframe" hyperlink="Source"]
