(WASHINGTON) — The Supreme Court announced on Tuesday that it will take up the case regarding President Obama’s executive action on immigration.
Twenty-six states are challenging Obama’s executive actions, which made it possible for millions of undocumented immigrants who are parents of children who are citizens to stay in the country and potentially apply for work permits.
The states argue that the president ignored proper procedure and abused his power by excluding Congress.
The Supreme Court will likely hear arguments this spring and decide the case by the end of June, on the eve of the presidential nominating conventions.
