    The U.S. Supreme Court decided Tuesday it would hear a case challenging President Barack Obama's plan to defer the deportation of more than 4 million undocumented immigrants and allow them to work legally in the United States. Obama's executive order is aimed at stopping the deportation of parents of American-born children and permanent residents. As VOA's Carolyn Presutti reports, the court's decision on this case will have far-reaching effects.

    No matter where a person stands on the actual proposals by the White House, the assertion by the Executive Branch that the purview of immigration policy resides in that office, can only serve to parse the electorate by ethnicity and relegates what should be a permanent policy to a transitory one....decided by nothing other than who can be elected to the White House to change immigration policy and not by what is determined to be sound policy.
    That sounds pretty terrible to me.
