LOS ANGELES –  California Attorney General Kamala D. Harris released the following statement in response to today’s ruling from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, denying the U.S. Department of Justice’s request for an emergency stay in Texas, et al. v. United States, et al., the lawsuit against President Obama’s immigration executive actions. Attorney General Harris and 14 other Attorneys General had echoed the federal government’s call for an emergency stay, allowing the executive actions to move forward, in a friend-of-the-court brief.

“President Obama proposed commonsense actions to help address our broken immigration system and provide a path out of the shadows for over one million hard-working undocumented Californians eligible for deferred action,” said Attorney General Harris. “I am disappointed that the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals denied our request for a stay to allow these lawful actions to immediately move forward. California will continue to lead the way in defending the President’s actions so that we can enjoy a safer, more prosperous California.”
