Supreme Court to review Obama's executive action on immigration

The U.S. Supreme Court today agreed to hear a legal case challenging the constitutionality of President Barack Obama's ability to take executive action on immigration.

The judges will have to decide whether lower courts had grounds to block DAPA, the deferred action program for parents of citizens and permanent residents, and the expansion of DACA - the deferred action for young childhood arrivals, proposed by Obama in November 2014.

These programs would suspend deportation and allow approximately 5 million undocumented immigrants to live and work legally in the United States on a temporary basis.

The Supreme Court is expected to review the case in April and announce its decision by the end of June.
