Abstract

On Thursday last week, a deadlocked Supreme Court failed to overturn an Appeals Court ruling which has prevented President Obama’s 2014 executive actions on immigration from coming into effect. Catalina Amuedo-Dorantes writes that the Supreme Court’s lack of action means that 4 million undocumented immigrants – many of them parents – remain in immigration limbo. She argues that it also underscores the importance of the coming presidential election; whoever moves into the White House will likely pick several new Supreme Court judges, who could profoundly influence the direction of future US immigration policy.
