BREAKING: Expanded Deferred Action Blocked By Supreme Court

June 23, 2016

On Thursday, the Supreme Court announced that it was evenly split in the case of United States v. Texas, meaning that the expansion of deferred action programs that the Obama Administration announced in 2014 will remain blocked from going in to effect. The original Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) that was announced and implemented in 2012 is not affected by this ruling. However, as it stands, neither DAPA nor the expansion of DACA look likely to be implemented during Obama’s presidency.
