A federal judge in Texas has put a halt to President Obama’s efforts to reform the U.S.’s immigration system through executive action.
The president’s executive order was two-fold: the implementation of Deferred Action for Parents of Americans, or DAPA, and the expansion of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA. Both actions would protect millions of undocumented immigrants from deportation. (Video via U.S. Department of Homeland Security / Daniel Barrios)
