Supreme Court Meets To Decide Future of Obama's Immigration Actions

The U.S. Supreme Court will hear arguments Monday on the President's plan on immigration reform.

The U.S. Supreme Court will hear arguments Monday on the President's plan on immigration reform.

President Obama issued an executive order that would spare more than 4 million undocumented immigrants from deportation and give them work permits.

26 states then sued, and in February of 2015, a federal judge in Texas blocked the program.

The death of Justice Antonin Scalia this past February could complicate the case. A tie vote in the high court would leave the Appeals Court ruling in place, throwing out President Obama's executive action. Or the Justices may try to avoid a formal ruling one way or the other, allowing the immigration program to go into effect.
