Obama To Take Immigration Case To Supreme Court

President Obama will ask the Supreme Court to clear the way for his long-delayed immigration overhaul, administration lawyers said Tuesday, setting up another high-stakes legal contest in the nation’s highest court over the fate of one of the president’s signature achievements.

Whether the case will get argued in January, with ruling by May, or pushed back to the Fall, remains to be seen.

Also on Tuesday, the White House indicated the president would sign the $607 billion defense policy bill, even though it includes a provision that bans moving Guantanamo Bay detainees to the United States, something Obama has been trying to do since he was sworn in.
