The U.S. government today sought an emergency stay of the district court's preliminary injunction in Texas v. United States. As previously reported on ImmigrationProf, the disrict court denied a stay request by the Obama administration.
Among other things, the United States contends that the injunction should be stayed pending appeal because the district court ruling was "wrong." "At a minimum, the injunction should be stayed with respect to: (1) States that are not parties to this suit; and (2) plaintiff States other than Texas."
