Supreme Court Tie Dooms Obama Immigration Policy

Source: NBC

The U.S. Supreme Court split 4-4 Thursday over a challenge to President Obama's immigration policy, a result that prevents the administration from putting the program into effect during the rest of him term.

Announced in late 2014, it would shield more than four million people from deportation. But lower courts blocked its implementation after Texas and 25 other states sued, claiming the president had no power to order the changes.

The death of Antonin Scalia left the Supreme Court evenly divided on the issue. Thursday's tie vote means the justices were unable to announce a ruling, an outcome that leaves in place the lower court rulings against enforcing the plan.

Under the proposal, adults here illegally could remain if they meet certain residency requirements and have children who are U.S. citizens or lawful permanent residents. It would also expand another program, now in effect, that allows young people to stay in the country if they were brought here under age 16.

2. Comprehensive reform is the only way to avoid

any deportations (in this case, parents now hiding who have children born here).

3. Republicans are on a roll

They've hidden the U.S. House protest on TV

Now they are forcing immigrants underground into hiding

Donald is hiding his tax returns, and something under his hair

Mitch McConnell has hidden Judge Garland, the Supreme Court Nominee

Do you see a pattern here?

It's not a problem unless we SAY it's a problem

Nothing to see here, move along ....
