The DAPA program (Deferred Action for Parental Accountability) was announced by President Obama on November 20, 2014. It was expected that 4 million undocumented parents of US citizens and green card holders would be issued work permits under the program.
A Federal Judge in Texas issued an injunction blocking the implementation of the program and the expanded DACA programs before they could become effective. The US Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit upheld the injunction by a 2-1 vote on November 9, 2015. In June 2016, the Supreme Court failed to overturn the injunction.
“After wasting thousands of dollars on other lawyers, Mr. Shusterman was life saver. I recommend him hands down!”
