The Obama administration has found itself with fewer options as it attempts to stop a new flood of immigrant families seeking asylum from the chaotic violence in Central America.

That's because the strategies the administration devised in 2014, during an initial rush of illegal immigrants over the U.S.-Mexico border, have been hit with legal and political setbacks, and thus, limited solutions, The New York Times reports.

In one setback, a federal court ordered the Department of Homeland Security to release children and their parents from detention quickly so they may claim asylum in lower courts across the country, according to the Times.

And recent raids to deport families whose asylum cases have been lost have been under fierce fire by numerous Latino and immigrant groups.

The Times reports the Obama administration was hit with yet another legal setback on Thursday.

Officials were forced to stop the deportations of three Salvadoran mothers and their children arrested in the recent raids after their lawyers won stays from an immigration appeals court.
