(Worthy News) - A Federal appeals court dealt a severe and possibly fatal blow Monday to President Obama's executive actions to allow up to 5 million immigrants living illegally in the United States to stay and obtain work permits.
The decision by the U.S. 5th Circuit Court of Appeals may have come too late for the administration to appeal to the Supreme Court and win a reversal before Obama leaves office.
In a 2-1 decision, the appeals court sided with Texas and 25 other states that had sued to block Obama’s programs, Deferred Action for Parents of Americans, or DAPA, and an extension of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA. [ Source ]
