This week the Immigration Reform Law Institute (IRLI) filed a motion for permission to file its friend-of-the-court brief in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit in support of the state of Mississippi and several Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents’ petition for rehearing by the full court after their appeal was denied. The case is Crane v. Johnson (Civil Action No. 14.10049), a lawsuit challenging President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) executive action, which prevents ICE agents from arresting and detaining illegal aliens as required by federal law.
