Kansas Officials Call Texas Immigration Ruling a Victory

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach says that a federal court ruling that blocks an executive order on immigration vindicates his efforts.  A federal judge in Texas temporarily blocked executive orders Tuesday that would have protected as many as 5 million people who entered the U.S. illegally from deportation.  Kansas is one of 26 states that have challenged the orders as unconstitutional. Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt calls the ruling a preliminary victory in the case.  Kobach said the ruling will boost his state-level efforts to deny benefits to people in the U.S. illegally.  Irene Caubillo, president of advocacy group El Centro, said she expected the ruling to be appealed and her organization would continue to aid those in the country illegally to gain legal status.
