More evidence that Kris Kobach wasted taxpayers' money in Texas

The DACA program (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) which provides "deferred action" for certain children who were brought to the United States, in most cases, by their parents many years ago has been upheld by the Fifth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, which has jurisdiction over Texas, in a unanimous ruling.
Kris Kobach, the secretary of state of Kansas, is well known for challenging laws and (in this case) executive action by President Obama, and costing taxpayers many millions of dollars.  He was involved in making the case to a federal district judge in Texas that the DACA and DAPA (Deferred Action for Parent Accountability) programs are unconstitutional.  That ruling was swiftly appealed to the Fifth Circuit by the Justice Department.  The case below is a strong indication that the federal district judge's opinion will be reversed.
