Today, after a hearing on the whether temporary hold on President Obama's executive actions on immigration should be lifted, the United States Court Of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit did not rule and took both sides argument under advisement. Nor did the judges indicate when they would rule. In the event the appeals court lifts the temporary injunction, the administration for Obama could quickly move to carry out the executive orders which consists of expanding the immigration and extend deportation protection to certain parents of U.S. Citizens and Permanent Residents who have in the country for several years. The provision was slated to begin on May 19, 2015. Even if the injunction is lifted, opponents could still block the executive order by appealing to the Supreme Court. Moreover, even if the program proceeds, the underlying lawsuit challenging the President Obama's executive action could still continue in Texas. The briefs on the merits of the underlying lawsuit is due in mid-May, and a hearing could come in early as June. Therefore, there are many challenges lies ahead for the Obama's executive immigration action.
