At issue is President Obama’s executive action on immigration:

Fourteen months ago, Mr. Obama ordered the creation of a program intended to allow as many as five million illegal immigrants who are the parents of citizens or of lawful permanent residents to apply for a program sparing them from deportation and providing them work permits. The program was called Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents, or DAPA. . . A coalition of 26 states, led by Mr. Paxton, a Republican, quickly filed a lawsuit accusing the president of ignoring federal procedures for changing rules and of abusing the power of his office by sidestepping Congress.

The Federal District Court in Texas ruled against President Obama, entering an injunction that prohibited the immigration plan from moving forward. The 5th Circuit Court of Appeal upheld that injunction. The outcome of this Supreme Court case, which will likely be decided in late spring 2016, will have profound effects upon immigration in the United States.
