DOJ seeks to lift hold on deportation relief programs

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – The Justice Department is seeking a stay to a Texas ruling that has put President Barack Obama’s executive order on immigration on hold.

The request includes a notice to appeal the Texas federal judge’s ruling from last week that stops the Department of Homeland Security from proceeding with the executive order that seeks to spare millions of undocumented immigrants from deportation.

Meantime, the Friday deadline looms to authorize funding for the Department of Homeland Security.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell plans to introduce a bill that separates overall DHS funding from the money available for immigration reform.

The Obama administration is warning that a DHS shutdown is a real possibility and it could mean a real threat to national security.
