In December 2014, shortly after President Obama announced two new immigration initiatives, Texas and 25 other states filed a lawsuit in a federal district court to stop them from being implemented. The two initiatives are an expansion of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA+) and the creation of Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents (DAPA). The federal district court issued an order that blocks the initiatives from going forward. That case, United States v. Texas, is now before the U.S. Supreme Court.
