The U.S. Supreme Court agrees to rule on President Obama's immigration orders.

FOX's Jon Decker reports from the White House:

The U.S. Supreme Court has agreed to hear arguments over whether the President exceeded his presidential powers when he took executive action to shield more than 4 million illegal immigrants from deportation.

That executive action was blocked by lower courts after Texas and 25 other Republican Governors sued to stop it.

The immigrants who would benefit from the President's plan are mainly the parents of U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents.

The case will be argued before the Supreme Court as early as April and decided by late June, about a month before both parties' presidential nominating conventions.
