Supreme Court To Decide If Obama Amnesty Executive Order Is Illegal

The U.S. Supreme Court has announced it will decide whether President Obama’s controversial immigration Executive Order is constitutional.

According to Fox News:

The Supreme Court agreed Tuesday to review President Obama’s plan to shield up to 5 million illegal immigrants from deportation, after lower courts blocked the president’s sweeping executive actions from taking effect.

The decision sets up an election-year clash over the controversial plan that many Republicans have likened to “amnesty.”

The justices said Tuesday they will consider undoing lower court rulings that blocked the plan from taking effect. The Obama administration had appealed to the Supreme Court last fall.
