Texas Judge Keeps Injunction on Obama’s Executive Action
Latin Post | April 9, 2015
U.S. District Judge Andrew S. Hanen on Tuesday didn’t simply deny lifting an injunction placed on President Obama’s executive action on immigration last February. He vehemently denied the request, saying millions of undocumented individuals would cause irreparable damage.
Hanen, like lawmakers from 26 largely Republican states, opined that Obama had exceeded his authority and violated standard administrative procedures for creating new programs. The Texas federal judge concluded that the president’s immigration action should not go forward.
