Sid Salter: Mississippi wades into immigration fight

The current eight members of the Supreme Court will determine the fate of millions of undocumented immigrants who have been in the U.S. illegally for a number of years. At best, the Obama administration initiatives could protect as many as 4 million undocumented immigrants from deportation and enable them to legally work in the U.S.

Mississippi, through Gov. Phil Bryant, is a party to the lawsuit. Mississippi is one of 25 states supporting the state of Texas in its assertion that the Obama administration’s immigration policies represent an abuse of executive authority.
