Texas Court Injunction a Bump in the Road of Executive Action

Commentary by Rafael Figueroa, Esq.:  The recent Texas court injunction on the expanded DACA and DAPA programs of President Obama's executive action should be seen as a bump in the road.  Individuals who are potentially eligible for expanded DACA or DAPA should begin preparing to apply. They should begin gathering the necessary documents and seek the advice of good counsel to give themselves the best chance for success and to avoid potential problems. Most important, they must be wary of 'notarios' who offer legal advice without a license that is unethical and fraudulent.  Please see the following announcement from AILA.
