From The Wall Street Journal:

A federal judge’s order temporarily blocking President Barack Obama ’s immigration actions opened a potential path for easing the congressional impasse over immigration that has jeopardized funding for the Homeland Security Department, aides and lawmakers said Tuesday. Republicans who have opposed Mr. Obama’s immigration moves claimed vindication after U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen of Brownsville, Texas, issued an injunction freezing the actions, which Texas and 25 other states had challenged as unconstitutional.
