WASHINGTON DC – U.S. Senator Bob Menendez (D-NJ) issued the below statement after the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled against President Obama’s 2014 immigration executive actions to create DAPA and expand the DACA program for certain undocumented individuals in our country.

“While today’s ruling may be disappointing news to those still stuck in the shadows, it is by no means a surprise. The path is finally clear for the Supreme Court to weigh in and confirm the legality of the expanded DACA and DAPA programs.”
