Obama: We Will Appeal Texas Ruling on Immigration
NBC March 30, 2015
The Justice Department urged a federal appeals court Monday to reverse a hold a judge placed on President Barack Obama’s immigration executive action.
In the 69-page brief, filed with the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, government lawyers challenged a preliminary injunction issued in February by a federal judge in Brownsville, Texas. That decision placed on hold an executive action that could spare from deportation as many as 5 million people who are in the U.S. illegally.
