At 10:22 pm Monday night, the United States District Court for the Southern Division of Texas issued a temporary injunction enjoining the Department of Homeland Security from implementing “any and all aspects of or phases of the Deferred Action for Parents of Americans or Lawful Permanent Residents (DAPA) program” that President Obama announced on November 20, 2014. Here is what you need to know:

As a result, an estimated four million illegal immigrants will not be given work permits, drivers licenses, or Social Security numbers as Obama originally envisioned.Read_More_button
