Today the Supreme Court of the United States will hear arguments for and against the Executive Shares DACA DAPA and President Obama. In November 2014, President Obama announced the Deferred Action for Parents of US citizens or residents (DAPA) and the expansion of deferred action for childhood arrivals (DACA) that were issued to protect undocumented removal.
DAPA Under the program, parents who meet the following eligibility requirements receive protection from removal and work permit for three 3 years.
If you have a child citizen or resident on November 20, 2014.
If you were physically present in the United States since November 20, 2014.

The expansion of DACA program eliminates the age limit of 30 years, amplifies the date of presence in the United States as of January 2010, and expands the work permit to three years.
In February 2015, the Executive Actions the President of DACA and DAPA were BLOCKED by a federal judge in the case of US v. Texas, after 26 states filed suit to stop its implementation, arguing that Executive Orders violate federal law and the US Constitution. The federal government appealed to the Fifth Circuit Court and affirmed the decision of the court. In January this year, the Supreme Court of the United States accept the case and today be hearing the arguments of both sides.
What can happen:
The Court may decide against allowing the Fifth Circuit enforcement actions continue and the government could immediately start you DAPA program and expansion of DACA.
The Court may affirm the decision of the Fifth Circuit that prohibits the government to continue with the Executive Shares until the end of the court case in Texas, or executive actions that would still not implemented.
It is expected that the Supreme Court announces its decision on this case in June 2016. This decision is very important because it could give under deportation to possibly 3.7 million undocumented immigrants. These people could acquire a work permit, which allows them to get better jobs with better pay, obtain driver’s licenses, buy automobiles and secure, and improve the quality of life of their families. It would have a very positive for the economy and families in our Hispanic community impact.
