DAPA: Supreme Court Will Hear the Case

The Supreme Court has agreed to hear the DAPA case.  Oral arguments will be scheduled for April 2016.  The Court will most likely issue a decision in the case by the end of June 2016.

The Court will be resolving whether the states had a legal right to sue the Obama Administration, or whether the states lacked standing to do so.  The Court will also be deciding whether DAPA, and the expansion of DACA, is beyond the President’s powers, and whether the program is unlawful because the President did not include a cumbersome “notice-and-comment” procedure before implementing the program.

Finally, the Court added an additional question that it will answer:  whether DAPA and the expansion of DACA violates the Constitutional clause that states that the President must “take care” to faithfully execute the laws passed by Congress.
