On Monday, February 16, 2015, a federal judge issued a temporary injunction against the DAPA program and expanded DACA while he reviews the lawsuit filed by 26 states against the President's action. The Department of Justice has appealed the injunction. It may take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks for the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals to decide whether to uphold or dismiss the injunction. If the injunction is dismissed, the programs will proceed while the lower judge considers the original lawsuit. If the injunction is upheld, the programs will be halted during that time. It may take four to eight months for the lower judge to render a decision on the suit.
