Update from Brownsville: DHS Erroneously Granted 3 More Expanded DACA Work Authorizations

May 25th, 2016

In the latest update from Brownsville in Texas v. U.S., DHS acknowledged that “since its last update to the Court, at total of three EADs (employment authorization documents) with validity periods greater than two years–each of which has been produced and issued prior to the injunction–were inadvertently resent after having been returned to USCIS.” They were resent “due to human error.” Judge Hanen, I’m sure, will take this under advisement.

The affidavit was filed by the U.S. Attorney for the Souther District of Texas. The report noted, “Due to the present uncertainty regarding which lawyers form the Department of Justice are no longer admitted to practice pro hac vice before this Court, the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Texas files the attached declaration.”
