Supreme Court to Hear Immigration Plan

Case scheduled for April, contains potential to legally allow Obama’s executive order.

As of Jan. 21, the Supreme Court agreed to hear President Barack Obama’s immigration plan that would allow illegal immigrants to come out openly and work legally in the United States. The immigration plan overall would protect those of the illegal immigrants living in the U.S from being deported from the country. The plan would supposedly effect up to around five million of the nation’s illegal immigrant population. Supreme Court officials said the case could reverse the lower court rulings that kept his plan from taking effect. The case is scheduled to be argued in April and decided by late June.

“I feel that if immigrants are able to work in the U.S. legally, then they should be able to live in the U.S. legally,” junior Claire Holston said.
