ABSTRACT

Obama Administration's November 20, 2014, Actions as to Immigration: Pending Legal Challenges One Year Later [November 20, 2015]   [open pdf - 154KB]

"On November 20, 2014, the Obama Administration announced that it was taking a number of actions to 'fix' what the President has repeatedly described as a 'broken' immigration system. These actions addressed various issues, from border security to legal immigration to enforcement priorities and policies, as well as providing certain relief from removal to some of the approximately 11 million aliens who are present in the United States without a legal immigration status. One year later, many of these actions have been implemented, or are being implemented, without any legal challenge to the Executive's authority to take such actions. However, several legal challenges are currently pending to actions directly or indirectly called for on November 20, 2014. This Sidebar provides a brief overview of the status of these challenges."
