US vs Texas – Pres Obama’s DACA & DAPA

United States v. Texas, No. 15-674, ___ U.S. ___ (2016), is a pending United States Supreme Court case regarding the constitutionality of the Deferred Action for Parents of Americans (DAPA) program.

The Deferred Action for Parents of Americans program was announced by President Barack Obama in November 2014 as part of his plan for immigration reform. The program attempts to grant deferred action to undocumented immigrants who are the parents of a U.S. citizen or a lawful permanent resident.

Many non-residents (illegal immigrants) DO pay U.S. Federal taxes

An ITIN, or Individual Taxpayer Identification Number, is a tax processing number only available for certain nonresident and resident aliens, their spouses, and dependents who cannot get a Social Security Number (SSN). It is a 9-digit number, beginning with the number “9”, formatted like an SSN (NNN-NN-NNNN).To obtain an ITIN, you must complete IRS Form W-7, IRS Application for Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (PDF) . The Form W-7 requires documentation substantiating foreign/alien status and true identity for each individual. You may either mail the documentation, along with the Form W-7, to the address shown in the Form W-7 Instructions, present it at IRS walk-in offices, or process your application through an Acceptance Agentauthorized by the IRS. Form W-7(SP), Solicitud de Número de Identificación Personal del Contribuyente del Servicio de Impuestos Internos (PDF) is available for use by Spanish speakers.

Boehner Says Obama Immigration Action Will ‘Burn Himself’

Nov 6, 2014 11:36 AM PT By Kathleen Miller – bloomberg

President Barack Obama will “poison the well” if he changes U.S. immigration policy without waiting for Congress to act, said House Speaker John Boehner.

“He’s going to burn himself if he continues to go down this path,” Boehner told reporters at a news conference today in Washington. He spoke a day after Mitch McConnell, a Kentucky Republican in line to be Senate majority leader, said executive action by Obama on immigration would be like “waving a red flag in front of a bull.”

Boehner’s party won at least 245 House of Representatives seats in the Nov. 4 election, giving Republicans their largest majority since World War II. The party gained at least seven Senate seats, more than enough to take control in January.

Obama yesterday repeated a promise to take action by the end of the year to halt deportations for some undocumented immigrants if Congress doesn’t move on rewriting U.S. law.

“What I’m not going to do is just wait,” the president said. He said Republicans who might be “angered or frustrated” are also “deeply opposed to immigration reform in any form.”

Boehner said that if Obama acts on his own, “he will poison the well and there will be no chance for immigration reform moving in this Congress.”

“When you play with matches, you run the risk of burning yourself,” the speaker said.

    Supreme Court to Hear Arguments on Obama’s Immigration Action

    April 15, 2016 12:23 AM VOA News

    The U.S. Supreme Court Monday is scheduled to hear arguments in a key U.S. immigration case challenging President Barack Obama’s executive action that delayed the deportation of nearly 5 million undocumented immigrants.

    The case, U.S. v. Texas, is about two Obama administration initiatives named Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and Deferred Action for Parents of Americans (DAPA), which offer protections to immigrants, allowing them to work legally for a period of two years subject to renewal.

    The measures would protect young immigrants from deportation if they were brought to the U.S. illegally as children. They would also extend deportation protections to parents of U.S. citizens and permanent residents who have been in the country for some years.
