I posted a blog a couple of weeks ago about the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit’s decision to uphold a preliminary injunction against the imposition of the Deferred Action for Parents and Lawful Permanent Residents (DAPA) Program. Unsurprisingly, the federal government filed a petition for a writ of certiorari (cert) with the United States Supreme Court, asking the Supreme Court to vacate the preliminary injunction and uphold its authority to implement DAPA.
