Attorneys clash over DACA in Houston federal courtroom

Judge delays decision and asks for further information

HOUSTON – US District Judge Andrew Hanen declined to issue a temporary injunction today to halt the Obama-era program known as DACA, asking for additional briefs from both sides, due on Monday.

Supporters of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA, set the bar low going into the Houston hearing today. Think Progress quipped Hanen was the love child that Kris Kobach would have had with the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency if such a thing could happen, and called Hanen “the most anti-immigrant judge in the country.”
