The United States (US) Supreme Court has finally agreed on Tuesday to hear a challenge over executive actions taken by Barack Obama moving the status of almost 5 million undocumented migrants, as per reported by the Associated Press.
The court would hear the arguments in spring his year and then issue a decision by the end of the term in June.
The Associated Press reports:
The justices said they will consider undoing lower court orders that blocked the plan from taking effect in the midst of a presidential campaign that already roiled by the issue.
The case will be argued in April and decided by late June, about a month before both parties’ gather for their nominating conventions.
The immigrants who would benefit from the administration’s plan are mainly the parents of U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents.
Texas is leading 26 mainly Republican-dominated states in challenging the Democratic administration’s immigration plan.
So far, the federal courts have sided with the states to keep the administration from issuing work permits and allowing the immigrants to begin receiving some federal benefits.
If the justices eventually side with the administration, that would leave roughly seven months in Obama’s presidency to implement his plans.
The report would review the orders given by US President Barack Obama who directed to allow the 5 million immigrants living in the United States illegally، to “come out of the shadows” and work legally in States.
