White House will seek emergency order to stay Texas immigration ruling
The White House will seek an emergency stay to fight back against a recent decision by a Texas federal judge who ruled earlier this week against the Obama administration’s immigration plans, a spokesperson for the president
Lawyers with the United States Department of Justice will soon file an injunction on President Barack Obama’s behalf in an attempt to stay the recent court order, Josh Earnest, the press secretary for the White House
, told reporters during a briefing on Friday.
If it goes unchallenged, the order will stop the administration’s plans to defer deportations for up to 5 million people who are in the US illegally.
“We will seek that appeal because we believe when you evaluate the legal merits of the arguments, that there is a solid legal foundation for the president to take the steps he announced last year to help reform our immigration system,” Earnest said, according to The Hill.
On Monday, US District Judge Andrew S. Hanen ruled that the Obama administration’s plan
 to let illegal immigrants stay within America’s borders “does not represent mere inadequacy,” but, rather, “is complete abdication.”
Obama’s immigration plans derailed by Texas-led coalition
A US federal judge ordered an injunction to halt President Barack Obama’s controversial plans to exert executive authority and allow millions of undocumented immigrants to remain in the United States.
