It has been reported that President Obama halted deportations for millions of people in the country illegally, in that vein the Supreme Court Tuesday declared it will look into this action.

The announcement also has a stark practical significance: The fates of millions of immigrants in the country illegally who are eligible for the programs have been in limbo while the case moves through the courts.
The dynamics are not unlike those underlying the 2012 elections, when the Supreme Court’s ruling against an Arizona immigration law ignited the debate over deportations and carried into the presidential contest between Obama and GOP nominee Mitt Romney.

Republicans disagree, accusing Obama of trying to sidestep Congress to legislate from the White House. Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), former chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said in a statement.
