The Obama Administration appealed the 5th Circuit Federal Court of Appeals ruling from Texas v. U.S. to the Supreme Court on November 20, 2015. Twenty-six states, initiated the legal challenge to stop the President’s 2014 administrative actions on immigration. The states opposing the administrative action argue that implementing the administrative action would pose an economic burden on states. The Supreme Court announced on January 19th, that it will take up the case which will likely be argued in April and decided by the last week in June.
While the outcome of the case is pending, CLINIC recommends that qualified legal immigration practitioners continue client screenings to assist those eligible for other immigration benefits. Please see CLINIC’s useful timeline on the President’s Executive Action on Immigration.
