The ruling of the U.S. Supreme Court in United States v. Texas, although an affirmance by a 4-4 vote of the lower court ruling, creates a number of immediate and foreseeable matters to be addressed by immigration as well as for the attorneys and others representing or assisting the large community affected by this case. This includes the current DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Plus) and potential DAPA (Deferred Action for Parents of Americans) applicants.
Topics of discussion:
- The current eligibility these programs
- The status of prosecutorial discretion
- The priorities of the Department of Homeland Security and possible alternative remedies
Hear the panel discuss future proceedings in the U.S. v Texas litigation and possible future matters involving Presidential powers in this area and other issues such as standing and administrative law that may be addressed by this or other cases.
