What is an injunction?
What programs did the injunction affect?
The injunction only affects the new DACA and DAPA programs. Other programs announced by President Obama on November 20, 2014 can still go forward, including the new enforcement priorities. The new DACA program was set to begin on February 18, 2015, but the injunction occurred just days before, pausing the program. It was initially anticipated that the DAPA application would be available in May of 2015. When the new DACA and DAPA will be available is now unclear. However, it is important to understand, that while we have great faith that the programs will be allowed to go forward, we cannot be sure. We hope that both applications will be available in the near future.

On April 7, 2015, the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals held that agents of USCIS nor the state of Mississippi had standing to challenge DACA. Crane v. Johnson.
