US Supreme Court justices consider hearing Obama’s immigration appeal

As early as Friday the nation’s highest court could decide whether or not it will take up the dispute. In 2014 President Obama took an executive action after Congress failed to pass legislation to prevent millions of immigrants for deportation.

The justices must decide whether to take up the administration’s appeal of a November ruling by the New Orleans-based 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that upheld a February 2015 decision by U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen in Brownsville, a city along the Texas border with Mexico, to halt Obama’s action.

Obama’s executive order lifting the threat of deportation against more than 4 million illegal immigrants was directed at people with no criminal record whose children are U.S. citizens. Those eligible would be able to work legally and receive some federal benefits. States were not required to give any benefits. — Yahoo News
