(Worthy News)-- The government will not ask the Supreme Court to review a judge's decision that put on hold President Barack Obama's executive action on immigration, the Justice Department said Wednesday.
The decision came one day after a federal appeals court panel refused to lift a Texas judge's injunction that kept the sweeping immigration plan from taking effect.
U.S. District Court Judge Andrew Hanen issued a preliminary injunction on Feb. 16 that halted Obama's executive action, which could spare from deportation as many as 5 million people who are in the U.S. illegally. More than two dozen states sought the injunction, arguing that Obama's executive action was unconstitutional. --[wp_colorbox_media url="http://www.newsmax.com/Newsfront/US-Immigration-Lawsuit-supreme/2015/05/27/id/647110/" type="iframe" hyperlink="Source"]
