The states filed a motion for a nationwide preliminary injunction to prevent the federal government from implementing the 2012 memo that created the DACA program by issuing or renewing DACA permits in the future, stating that this “would essentially wind down the program over two years.” (Texas v. United States, 5/2/18)

Texas and six other states filed a lawsuit against the federal government in federal district court, challenging the 2012 executive action that created the DACA program and seeking an injunction against the issuance or renewal of any DACA permits in the future. The district court judge to whom this case is assigned, Andrew Hanen, is the judge who issued the 2/16/15 injunction blocking the implementation of DAPA and the expansion of DACA. (Texas v. United States, 5/1/18)
