Our Los Angeles Immigration Attorneys are excited to announce that the Supreme Court announced on Tuesday their plans to take up a case directly challenging the legality of President Barack Obama’s 2014 executive actions on immigration reform. These executive actions being challenged are two aimed at granting temporary deferment from deportation and a temporary work permit to certain qualifying undocumented individuals, including those who entered the U.S. illegally as children and those who have children who are U.S. citizens or Lawful Permanent Residents, as well as meeting other strict criteria.
The Supreme Court Justices are expected to hear arguments on the issue in April and to hand down a ruling no later than the end of June 2016. If the high court rules in the Obama Administration’s favor, he will have a relatively short window to try to roll out the expanded Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program as well as the new initiative called Deferred Action for Parents of Americans, prior to the inauguration of the next President in January 2017.
We look forward to hearing additional news and updates about the Supreme Court’s future ruling in favor of the Obama Administration. If you or a loved one have immigration questions, contact us now for a FREE immigration consultation.
