WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Did someone order a supreme? No, we're not talking pizza; we're talking a slice of Supreme Court action.

On Tuesday, the highest court said it would consider a legal challenge to President Obama's executive action to change the way we process illegal immigration.

Long gone would be the days of quick deportation. The program allows more than four million undocumented immigrants whose kids are born on this side of the border to apply for work permits.

But the proposal didn't come without opposition; legal action has been filed by the State of Texas and 25 other states, proving not everyone is a fan of the new plan while some are blaming Obama for abusing his power.

But the White House thinks differently. "So we've got a strong argument to make, both in terms of the legal ground in which we're operating, but also in terms of the practical impact, positive impact that these executive actions will have on the security of communities all across the country,” White House spokesperson Josh Earnest said.

For now, the proposed immigration reform is straddling the fence and the Supreme Court won't rule on the case until early summer.

Looks like these dreamers will be tossing and turning until that final vote.
