100,000 Work Permits Have Already Been Issued To Immigrants

There were 100,000 applications approved by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS)prior to the actual kick-off date of the 18th of February. This information was revealed by the Obama administration.

According to the Justice Department, the administration actually moved forward with the program before they were supposed to. This was revealed in a court filing to a Texas federal court which placed a temporary stop on the executive amnesty issued by President Obama on November 20, 2014. This expansion occurred specifically under Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents (DAPA) and Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA).

The judge in Texas issued the temporary halt on the DACA and DAPA expansion on the 16th of February. According to the new filings from the Justice Department, between the period of November 24th and February 16th, the USCIS approved 100,000 illegal immigrants for a three year employment authorization. One aspect of the announcement made by Obama on November 20th, was the time expansion from two to three years on these work permits.

The Obama administration stressed in the filing that all of this was completed before the injunction by the court. Even with them taking action on the executive orders prior to the actual beginning of the expanded programs, the administration has explained that the filing will not revoke the EADs that have been issued. They just wanted the court to be aware of them.
