US immigration reform debate

Editor's note: The U.S. Supreme Court announced Tuesday that it would consider ​reversing lower court rulings against President Obama's executive orders on immigration. Twenty-six states, led by Texas, have challenged the president's plan, which could potentially shield up to 5 million immigrants from deportation, saying the president exceeded his powers. The dispute is likely to be argued before the top court in the coming months, with a ruling likely handed down by the end of June -- before November's presidential election. If the White House wins the case, President Obama has about 7 months to implement his plan before a new administration takes over in 2017. - Rebecca
