Judge Orders Hearing on Allegations in Immigration Lawsuit

Monday, 09 Mar 2015 09:10 PM

The federal judge who blocked President Barack Obama's executive action on immigration has ordered the Justice Department to answer allegations the government misled him about part of the plan.

U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen has ordered federal government lawyers to appear in his court March 19 in Brownsville, Texas. The hearing is in response to a filing last week in which the government acknowledged some deportation reprieves were granted before Hanen's Feb. 16 injunction.

Government attorneys had previously said officials wouldn't accept such requests under Obama's action until Feb. 18.

The government said in its filing that the 100,000 immigrants who were granted three-year reprieves and work permits were already eligible under a previous immigration plan from 2012.

The 26 states suing over Obama's plan requested more information.
