WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court has agreed to an election-year review of President Barack Obama’s executive orders to allow up to 5 million immigrants to “come out of the shadows” and work legally in the United States.

The justices said Tuesday they will consider undoing lower court rulings that blocked the plan from taking effect in the midst of a presidential campaign already roiled by the issue.

The case probably will be argued in April and decided by late June, about a month before both parties’ presidential nominating conventions.

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

Texas is leading 26 states in challenging the immigration plan.
