Column -Should a small Texas court set immigration law for the nation?

Throughout the United States, millions of undocumented immigrants with American children live in fear of being deported - despite a federal program that could shield them. This danger has been present since February 2015, when a federal district court judge in a small Texas town ruled that the Obama administration's protective program, the Deferred Action for Parents of American Citizens and Lawful Permanent Residents, or DAPA, could not prevent deportation anywhere in the nation. Six months later, the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed that decision 2-1.
