Washington, DC -- On June 23rd, the US Supreme Court issued a 4-4 tie decision on President Obama’s executive action programs designed to provide relief from deportation to close to 5 million members of the undocumented community - Deferred Action for Parents of Americans (DAPA) and the expansion of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA+). The decision maintains the block against DAPA and DACA+, preventing them from being implemented.
Yesterday the Department of Justice filed a petition with the Supreme Court for rehearing in United States v. Texas.
