Obama To Appeal Ruling Blocking Immigration Orders

The Justice Department will appeal a federal judge's blocking of the Obama administration's executive actions on immigration, President Barack Obama said Tuesday. Obama told reporters "the law's on our side" for allowing certain undocumented immigrants temporary reprieve from deportation. A federal judge in Texas did not rule on the legality of the orders but said there was enough merit to warrant suspending them while a legal challenge goes forward.
