Obama’s Immigration Order Heads to Supreme Court


The Supreme Court recently announced they would consider a legal challenge to President Obama’s reform on the nation’s immigration rules. Obama’s executive action, which took place over a year ago, would grant quasi-legal status and work permits to no more than five million people who entered the U.S. illegally as children or who have children who are U.S. citizens.

The justices are expected to cover this issue in April and to figure out ruling by June of this year. This move sets the stage for the most notable and politically charged immigration decisions in the court’s history. So far, the Supreme Court has ruled against the Obama administration’s decision.
