Immigration Reform 2015: Obama executive order under serious threat
Is there any hope left as far as immigration reformâ€™s implementation in original form is concerned. Let alone the original form of immigration reform, even a slimmed version of the reform doesnâ€™t seem feasible at the moment.
Right now President Barack Obamaâ€™s executive order is under threat. To be true it has been stopped by a US court and there seems to be only a faint hope that it can get past the court in the coming days. Many detractors of immigration reforms firmly believe that Obamaâ€™s executive order has not hope of going through the court, at least in its present form.
Though President Obama and his Democrat allies have been claiming that the immigration reform executive order can be cleared by the court, many people are not convinced. Many undocumented immigrants who were rather sure till a few months ago about the immigration reform becoming a reality, the same people seem to be losing hope.
In the meantime hundreds of immigration reform advocates are all set to hold a huge rally in New Orleans on Friday, where judges are all set to debate whether to lift a preliminary injunction against President Barack Obamaâ€™s plans to shield some 5 million illegal immigrants from deportation.
Organizers claim that the plans for Fridayâ€™s rally outside the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals is being held after about 100 New Orleans immigrants held a candlelight vigil and protest there Thursday.
The organizers are upbeat about the development. New Orleans protest organizer Fernando Lopez told the New Orleans Times-Picayune says, â€œIt’s a lot at stake in this hearing because millions of people are depending on this decisionâ€¦It’s not only [about] papers, it’s not only about becoming documentedâ€¦It’s about human dignity and justice and recognizing the contributions of the immigrant community.”
The appeals court is scheduled to hear arguments Friday, but is not expected issue a ruling by then, the Associated Press and the Times-Picayune reported.
Obama’s executive actions, announced in November 2014, included an expansion of the program for young illegal immigrants who were brought to the United States as children, known as the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). The other executive action, known as Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents, covers parents of children with legal status in the United States. People staying in the U.S. under DACA are protected from deportation for two years and allowed to work.
