LeeAnn Hall: What’s at Stake in the Supreme Court Today?

Today the Supreme Court is hearing arguments in United States v. Texas, the case that will decide whether President Obama’s 2014 executive actions on immigration were constitutional.

What’s at stake? Millions of immigrants and their families could see relief and move forward with their lives free from the fear of deportation if the Supreme Court shows moral leadership and allows the President’s immigration actions to go ahead.

The Alliance for a Just Society is joining with National People’s Action today in a promise to keep fighting for immigration relief so that all families can stay together. We will keep fighting against the politics of hate.

Will you join us and pledge to fight for families?

Take the I Will Fight for Families Pledge and we’ll keep you updated on what happens in the Supreme Court and ways you can take action to help keep families together.

Thousands of people are rallying, fasting, and taking action today to tell the Supreme Court to do the right thing and allow the Deferred Action for Parents of Americans (DAPA) and expanded Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) to proceed.

Texas and 25 other states sued the federal government over the executive actions. The relief programs have been stalled in the courts ever since, stopping millions of undocumented parents of U.S. citizens from applying to receive work permits and gain temporary protection from deportation. We expect to hear a Supreme Court decision in June.

Join us to fight for families inside and outside the courts. Sign our pledge and we’ll keep you informed.

We will continue to defend the President’s immigration initiatives, we will fight for lasting immigration reform, a pathway to citizenship, and to keep families together.
