As I noted a few days ago, Texas Judge Andrew Hanen issued a preliminary injunction and DACA2 cases will not be accepted tomorrow as originally planned. The White House will appeal the ruling and the 5th Circuit will be asked to lift the injunction. If that happens, we’ll be back on track in a few days. If not, the delay could be several months. In the mean time, Congress can decide if this ruling gives them cover to fund DHS for a while. If they’re smart, they’ll use this as the excuse to get out from the extremely unfortunate position they’ve found themselves.
[update: surprisingly, the judge avoided ruling based on constitutional grounds and instead said White House failed to follow administrative requirements for rolling out program. Hope that makes it easier for 5th Circuit to reverse injunction.]
