Report: SCOTUS call on immigration appeal may come soon

The Hill

The Supreme Court could announce as early as Friday if it will be taking up President Obama’s appeal to save his executive action on immigration, according to a Reuters report.

The news service reported early Friday that the nine Supreme Court justices were set to meet privately on whether to hear the White House appeal to a pair of lower court rulings that found invalid Obama’s move to shield 4 million immigrants from deportation.

Declining to hear the case would effectively kill the program, whereas taking it up would immediately make it one of the most-watched cases of the court’s current term.

Twenty-six GOP-led states sued to stop Obama’s 2014 executive action, which bypassed Congress to prevent the deportation of 4 million immigrations with no criminal records and children who are U.S. citizens.

A Texas court and the New Orleans-based 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that Obama had exceeded his authority with the move.

The court’s decision could come as soon as Friday afternoon.
