With blocks to President Barack Obama’s executive action to extend deferred action to undocumented parents of U.S. citizens and permanent residents, as well as to expand the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, 2015 marked a disappointing year for the undocumented.

The executive order would have taken effect in the second half of this year, but faced strong opposition from 26 states, led by Texas, which filed a lawsuit against the program.

The suit has made it up to the U.S. Supreme Court, which on Tuesday granted the administration’s request to give the case timely consideration, meaning a ruling will likely take place by summer.

There are about 190,000 undocumented Korean immigrants in the U.S., and an estimated 11 million overall, according to the Migration Policy Institute in August.

The plan, announced in November last year, would grant work permits to millions of undocumented parents of legal U.S. citizens or green card holders and allow immigrants over the age of 30 to qualify for DACA.
