This week on the Political Gabfest’s Slate Plus bonus segment, Emily Bazelon takes on the Supreme Court’s new case, United States v. Texas. Can Obama’s immigration program, Deferred Action for Parents of Americans, lawfully stand on executive action alone?

Emily explains the two prongs of this case and their implications for more clearly defining executive power.
