Immigration fight heads to federal appeals court

In a key test of President Barack Obama’s efforts to overhaul immigration law without congressional action, administration lawyers will on Friday ask a federal appeals court to lift an injunction blocking his executive action meant to help undocumented immigrants. Issued in February by Texas-based U.S. District Court Judge Andrew Hanen, the injunction halted programs unveiled in November intended to shield 4.7 million undocumented immigrants from deportation. Hundreds of pro-immigrant advocates are expected to rally in front of the U.S. Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals courthouse in New Orleans where arguments in the case are set to be heard. On April 7, the Fifth Circuit ruled that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers and the state of Mississippi lacked standing to sue over a separate immigration action issued by Obama in 2012 allowing immigrants brought to the United States as children to stay.
