In a 4-4 tie, the Supreme Court upheld lower court rulings on immigration laws that States passed in defiance of the President’s illegal executive actions. This effectively blocks and kills Obama’s plans that would have given deportation reprieve to millions of illegals.
The Federal Appeals Court in New Orleans ruled the Obama administration lacked the authority to shield up to 4 million illegal immigrants from being able to stay and attain work permits without approval from Congress.
Speaker of the House Paul Ryan says the High Court’s decision make Obama’s actions “null and void.”
“The Constitution is clear: the president is not permitted to write laws, only Congress is. This is another major victor in our fight to restore the separation of powers.”
Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton decried the Supreme Court’s ruling. It’s only expected as Hillary Clinton wants to do the same thing, which is trash the Constitution, bypass Congress and make her own executive laws however she sees fit.
