The Supreme Court announced today that it will rule on the constitutionality of President Barack Obama’s immigration executive actions.
“The Supreme Court — which already has a docket bursting with consequential issues — will likely rule on the case by early summer. If the Court greenlights the programs that are considered a centerpiece of the President’s second term, they will go into effect before he leaves office.”
U.S. Senator Bob Menendez (D-NJ) reacted to the news in a statement.
“I applaud the Supreme Court for rightfully taking up the case for DAPA and expanded DACA programs,” said New Jersey’s senior senator. “The Republican obstructionism that has deprived millions from this important administrative relief is nothing short of shameful. I have full confidence that the Supreme Court will rule that these programs can be implemented and relief will finally be granted to millions of immigrants who have waited far too long to come out of the shadows, register with the government, get work permits, and no longer live with the fear of being deported.”
