Supreme Court split 4 – 4 in US v. Texas

by | Jun 28, 2016 | Firm News

The Supreme Court gave its ruling on US v. Texas, the result was a split 4- 4 decision essentially upholding the lower court’s injunction against  President Obama’s proposed immigration reform. This case has far reaching immigration implications and centered around a challenge to President Obama’s proposed, Deferred Action for certain Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents), or DAPA as part of his immigration reform plans.This proposed deferred action would not provide legal status, but would potentially allow certain parents of US citizens or lawful permanent resident children to work and live in the US  for a specified period of time without fear of removal. This decision is indeed disheartening for the millions of Americans and immigrants that it affects. It leaves many families in limbo and uncertain of their future. For some families this may mean separation as parents may face removal, while children remain in the US.
