Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals Decision on Injunction

On May 26, 2015, the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals denied the Federal Government's appeal of the temporary injunction which prevents the Department of Homeland Security from implementing the newly-announced DAPA and extended DAPA programs. The underlying suit (Texas v. United States) is still pending and there has been no ruling on the merits of the case. However, unfortunately, yesterday's ruling means that USCIS will not be able to accept applications for DAPA or extended DACA any time in the near future.
