(Worthy News) - The Supreme Court's decision to review the legality of President Obama's executive action allowing millions of illegal immigrants to remain in the country could put a damper on some of the White House's plans for a host of new executive actions this year.
White House chief of staff Denis McDonough said last week that Obama plans an "audacious" set of executive actions for the remainder of his time in office. But he was quick to note that the president's policymaking would be carefully designed to "make sure the steps we have taken are ones we can lock down and not be subjected to undoing" through Congress or the courts.
That condition has some legal scholars saying Obama is likely to rein it in for a bit, at least while the court considers the immigration actions. A decision on that is expected in June. [ Source ]
