Today, the U.S. Supreme Court issued its ruling in United States v. Texas. Unfortunately, the Court affirmed the lower courts preliminary injunction, or temporary ban, on President Obamas DAPA and expanded deferred action program from moving forward with a 4-4 vote. This means that DAPA and the expanded deferred action program remain unavailable to potential applicants. This ruling has no impact on the original DACA program initiated in 2012.
We will continue to provide updates regarding this issue as they become available.
