Supreme Court of The United States denies states’ requests for filing extension in immigration suitby Stephanie DiPietro

The supreme court rejected the request for a 30 day filing extension by the Texas supported by 25 other states and only granted an 8 day extension to submit a brief to the supreme court.  This allows the current session of the supreme court to hear this case and if the Obama administration wins, they will be able to implement Deferred Action for Parental Accountability (DAPA) and expanded Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) programs before President Obama leaves office in 2017.  According to the Latin Post, implementation of DAPA and DACA could potentially provide approximately 4.9 million undocumented immigrants with temporary three-year permits to stay in the U.S.
