from Bill Still
lass=”” >In startling news this morning, the US Supreme Court let stand a Federal Appeals Court ruling that struck down President Obama’s Immigration plan which sought to prevent deportation of millions of illegal immigrants living in the US illegally.
The 4-4 tie vote settles the matter for the duration of Obama’s presidency, but cannot set a national precedent unless the court decides by a majority decision.
Obama’s Immigration Plan, announced in November 2014, made 4 million illegal immigrants eligible for work permits without the approval of Congress.
The Federal Appeals Court in New Orleans ruled that Obama did not have the authority to do that.
