Frost and Vladeck: States Lack Standing to Challenge Expanded Deferred Action Program



In this op/ed in the New York Times,  Amanda Frost and Stephen I. Vladeck argue that the Supreme Court in Texas v. United States should find that, based on precedent, the states lack standing to challenge President Obama's expanded deferred action program.  In short, "[t]he Supreme Court should use the challenge to President Obama’s immigration policy to remind states that litigation is not an alternative to the political process. The justices should accept the case, hold that the plaintiffs lacked standing, and send it back to the lower courts with instructions to dismiss."
