The holdup that was demanded by Republicans will ensure that high court will not have written briefs from parties till 20th January and will also stop case from being heard during present court term and therefore, there will not be any decision delivered on this matter till June 2017, five months followed by Obama leaving the office.

The impact of the holdup will cause harm to around five million individuals who are waiting for the implementations of the actions to be able to get the work permits etc.

In the letter, solicitor general had agreed to an addition of a week such that on 29th December the Supreme Court will have the written replies of the parties, if it settle on to evaluate the matter.

Verrilli had told in the letter that the time length shall be more than enough. 

For the Obama administration, it is important that the nine Supreme Court justices had agreed to examine the case in the month of January so that they could rule it in June 2016.

The issue of undocumented migrants has become a very heavy weapon which is being used by both the party candidates for trying and gaining the electoral benefit.
