Immigration Reform… Where are we today?

Screen Shot 2016-04-19 at 3.27.42 PMThis Monday, April 18th, the Supreme Court judges were presented with arguments for and against the immigration reform that was presented by the Obama administration in 2014. As we know, Texas and 25 other states in the nation decided to take the case to court as a means to stop the expansion of DACA and DAPA. The immigration reform seeks to protect 4 million undocumented immigrants from deportation as well as allowing them to work legally through work permits. On the one hand, the arguments presented by conservatives say that Obama is abusing his executive power, while those supporting the reform say that by expanding DAPA and DACA, it would not only help undocumented immigrants, but also the country itself. Nevertheless, the strongest argument of those who support the reform is that states can not file these court cases since the reform directly affects immigrants, not the states and their obligations.

Today, the Supreme Court is divided in half, following the death of Justice Scalia. The Supreme Court is now composed of four judges appointed by the Democratic Party and four judges selected by the Republican Party. This leads us to think that the struggle for the immigration reform to move forward will be long, but not impossible.
