    @ RICK They will decide if the current President can cancel an executive order issued by the previous president. Want to guess what they will decide?

    Nope. However, they can and will decide the current President can cancel the Executive Orders issued by the previous President.

    SCOTUS doesn't make law it only deliberates to determine whether existing laws meet Constitutional muster. The Court is only looking to rule on whether the DACA program was Constitutional when it was created and whether a successive administration can undo it.

      Incorrect. They are deciding if the current President can cancel an executive order issued by the previous president.

    No. Congress decides who can get citizenship if they were not born in the U.S. The Supreme Court does not.

    No.

    The Surpreme Court decides disputes brought before them based on their constitutionality. So if, say, the President would give DREAMERs permanent residency via executive order, and the "other" party in Congress files suit, and the Supreme Court would decide to take this on (totally their decision), they would determine that the President's executive order was unlawful and thus override it.

    There's no way to hand out US citizenship to anybody.

    Related, understand that there are many immigrants who do not want to become US citizens, namely those who would automatically lose their original citizenship at the time that were to happen. So if I'm an immigrant from Japan and plan to retire in Japan after I made a fortune in the United States, the very last thing I would want to lose is my Japanese citizenship because some inconsiderate idiot of a US President made me a US citizen against my will, hereby closing the door to my retirement country for good.

      The actual question in this case is if the current president can cancel an executive order by the previous president. Remember the crazed 9th Circuit said Trump could not cancel Obama's EO creating DACA.

    No, they just interpret the law. Trump could give them a path to citizenship (as Reagan did with the illegals who were here when he was president), but Trump won't do that.

      That takes Congress
      Congress passed asmnesty, Reagan just agred and signed the bill

    No. They must uphold the Constitution, and the laws enacted by Congress. They cannot grant citizenship to those who have violated visa/immigration law.

    Blame your parents for putting you in an untenable situation if you are an illegal alien. You are going to have to return to your own country, and no way around it.

      The conservatives on the SC only uphold the Constitution when it favors them otherwise they disregard it

    No. They can only determine if a law or EO is constitutional. Seriously dumb ***, did you not pay attention in the 4th grade?
