President Brings Immigration to the U.S. Supreme Court

As predicted on The Immigration Guy Blog, the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals failed to overturn the Federal District Court's prior injunction preventing the implementation of the President's executive order for expansion of deferred action.   The President had two options on how to proceed in his battle for implementation of his plan.  He could either present the case to the entire Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals or go directly to the U.S Supreme Court.  Last week the United States Solicitor General announced his office had filed for certiorari (a request that the Supreme Court hear the case).  For a discussion of the arguments the President will pursue use the following link: Immigration Professor's Blog.
