The U.S. Supreme Court has put a challenge to Barack Obama’s executive actions on immigration at the top of its agenda, according to SCOTUS Blog . The court announced on on Friday that it will hear oral arguments in the case U.S. v Texas on Monday, April 18th. The court could hand down a ruling as early as June, ruling on multiple aspects of DAPA and expanded DACA. The case challenges the authority of the president to issue temporary work permits and deportation relief to as many as 5 million immigrants in the country illegally. DACA provides deferred action for certain immigrants who became present in the U.S. illegally as minors. DAPA does the same, but for certain immigrant parents of children with citizenship or strong ties to the U.S.
