The first Monday of October means a new term for the Supreme Court.
If you recall, back in June, the Supreme Court completely destroyed Obama’s dreams by blocking his immigration plan, which would’ve protected five million illegal immigrants from deportation and allowed them to work in the country legally.
The Court was split 4-4, which allowed the appeals court ruling (blocking the plan) to stand. Hillary was heartbroken.
Today's heartbreaking #SCOTUS immigration ruling could tear apart 5 million families facing deportation. We must do better. -H

In July, the Justice Department asked them to look at the case again, but the Court just refused to reconsider the Obama administration’s bid, which means the decision is final.
In a brief order, the court rejected the administration’s long-shot request, meaning the justices’ June 23 decision is final. That ruling left in place a lower court decision that had blocked the plan, which Obama announced in 2014 but never went into effect. The court remains one justice short following the February death of Antonin Scalia.
