Texas judge blocks DAPA, DACA expansion; administration to appeal

A little more than one day before an expansion was to take effect in a deferred deportation program known as DACA, a federal judge in Texas issued a preliminary injunction blocking the Obama administration's effort.

In a 123-page memorandum released by Texas Gov. Greg Abbott late Monday evening, District Court Judge Andrew Hanen granted the request of Texas and 25 other states to temporarily block a planned expansion of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals to certain people who were ineligible for the original 2012 program.
