HBA-DC Disappointed with Supreme Court Ruling in United States v. Texas

Tuesday, August 23, 2016  
On August 15, 2016, HBA-DC issued a press release regarding United States v. Texas, in which a divided Supreme Court left in place the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals’ injunction prohibiting President Barack Obama from establishing the Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents (DAPA) program and the expanded Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.  These programs were intended to provide relief to many undocumented individuals that meet certain criteria while Congress establishes comprehensive immigration reform.  HBA-DC calls on Congress to move beyond partisan politics and to come together to pass much needed comprehensive immigration reform.  You can read the press release here.
