lasting victory. dianne gallagher explains. the president's controversial executive action on immigration is going to court. the program allows more than four million undocumented immigrants whose children are u.s. citizens to apply for work permits... and avoid being deported - temporarily. "we've got a strong argument to make both in terms of the legal ground on which we're operating, but also in terms of the practical impact -- positive impact -- that these executive actions will have."the president laid out his vision back in 2014. "you'll be able to apply to stay in this country temporarily without fear of deportation. you can come out of the shadows and get right with the law. that's what this deal is".but so far, that hasn't happened- 26 states filed a lawsuit, blocking it from taking effect -- accusing the president of abusing his power, by going around congress- the supreme court will hear the arguments in april... and would likely issue its ruling in june... just before the conventions, in the middle of the presidential
and, no matter what that ruling is, the outcome of the election could impact the future of the program.

take voices in addition to smith and lee to prompt change. i think maybe if you have a member of the academy who is part of those older generation peers that speaks out, it may have a bigger impact. actor george clooney told variety in an interview published today... "we're moving in the wrong direction" in regard to acknowledging the work not only of african americans but also of hispanics in hollywood. on monday, academy president cheryl boone isaacs issued a statement promising more diversity quickly...amplifying remarks made at the nominations announcement last thursday. we just keep working and making sure that we all do the right thing because it is the right thing." with oscars host chris rock presiding over what he's already called "the whitebet awards".... attention on the issue will be
