On November 9th, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit blocked President Obama’s second proposed deportation relief program, the Deferred Action for Parents of Americans. DAPA would protect certain undocumented immigrant parents from deportation and give them access to short-term work visas. Though this ruling is a setback for undocumented immigrants in the United States, they are celebrating. The ruling allows the case to now be moved up the the Supreme Court where it will be considered again. An article by mentions that one woman who would benefit from a positive ruling said they just needed a decision either way instead of the four month waiting period after verbal discussion in court. “If yes, then great, we will get DAPA. If no, we’re going to have another chance to take it to the Supreme Court. And we’re not stopping.” Read more about the ruling in an article by
