WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court may soon revisit President Barack Obama’s move to end deportations of illegal immigrants who entered the U.S. as children, and a federal appeals court on Friday will consider whether the president’s action is constitutional.
In November 2012, the Supreme Court in an 8-to-1 vote struck down a 2011 executive action that allowed some children of illegal immigrants and other young immigrants to avoid deportation. The decision had been widely seen nationally as an expansion of that policy, which was implemented by former President George W. Bush in 2004. The president, who had vowed to end deporting any illegal immigrant who has been living in the U.S. for more than five years, said the executive action was in the U.S.’ “best interest.”

But the legality of the orders will be the subject of a decision by the District of Columbia Circuit Court of Appeals in D.C. Thursday, a week after the high court heard the case in Washington, D.C.
In a statement on Thursday, the U.S. solicitor general, Donald Verick, indicated, if the appeals court upholds the constitutionality of the action, that any subsequent administration would be required to abide by the law. No one has taken that step yet.
