The Supreme Court To Review Obama’s DAPA Immigration Plan


The Supreme Court will review President Obama’s landmark executive decision on immigration, DAPA, early next year. 26 states, mostly with Republican governors, sued the president to try and stop the executive action claiming that it exceeded his constitutional authority. The court agreed this week to hear the administration’s side of things in a timely manner. Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents and its counterpart program Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, is meant to ensure parents of natural born American citizens temporary work visas and an assurance that they will not be deported and have to leave their kids behind. While this seems like a humanitarian compromise to many, to others it seems like an easy way to get into the U.S. I don’t know when having a kid qualified as easy but what do I know?

It would be a huge victory for Obama in his last year in office if the Supreme Court upholds DAPA. That piece of domestic policy, along with Obamacare, are his greatest victories and his best bet at a long term legacy. Of course, if a Donald Trump becomes president in 2016 then this may all be a moot point. He would most likely reverse all of Obama’s executive actions and build a giant wall to keep out Latinos. We do what we can, right?
