Washington and 14 States back Obama presenting appeal.
Fourteen Democratic led States and Washington DC through the Department of Justice, filed an emergency motion with the New Orleans-based 5th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals asking that the court overturn last month’s injunction to President Obama’s immigration actions presented by a Texas judge.
Advocates who support the two programs —Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals DACA and Deferred Action for Parental Accountability DAPA would like to move forward as soon as possible. The 18 page document sets out how these programs would not only provide relief to families in the process of deportation but would give immigrants some protection offering a 3 year work permit that would result in increased tax revenue and strengthen the family nucleus. This would not apply to recent arrivals or to people with criminal records.
The State of Texas leaders of the opposition to these programs has some 700,000 eligible immigrants which is the second largest number after California. The contribution by increased taxes of this additional working population could represent more than $300,000,000 for Texas.
The States that support the appeal presented by the Government, reinforce their interest not only thinking about the millions of residents that live in our member states, but also in terms of the benefits that this change would mean.
Always consult with an experienced immigration attorney who is a law graduate and certified in the United States of America by the Board of Immigration Appeals Federal Department of Justice.
