ICE Officers Files Suit Over President Obama’s Immigration Initiative

Ten ICE officers filed a lawsuit in federal court last week in hopes of invalidating President Obama’s new initiative to defer the removal of 1.8 million young illegal immigrants who meet certain requirements for at least two years, according to the Heritage Foundation.

The lawsuit claims the agents have been ordered to release illegal immigrations who say they meet conditions of the deferral.

ICE agents say the initiative runs counter to Congress’ intent to reduce executive discretion over immigration laws, the foundation reports.

The foundation, however, believes the case will be difficult to win because a judge may decide the defendants have no standing.
