Key Resources: Supreme Court Hearing on U.S. v Texas

Share This:

On April 18, 2016 the U.S. Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in the U.S. v Texas immigration case.  At stake is the fate of the expanded Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA+) and Deferred Action for Parents of Americans (DAPA) immigration policies.

These policies would provide, on a temporary basis, protection from deportation and work authorization for certain undocumented immigrants who are either parents of American children or permanent residents, or came to the United States as children. Yet these policies are currently blocked from implementation due to an overtly political challenge brought by Republican Governors and Attorneys General from Texas and twenty-five other states.

David Leopold, an immigration attorney and past president of the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA), who serves as legal counsel for America’s Voice, has drafted a series of must-read assessments of the key questions surrounding the U.S. v Texas.
