Supreme Court Meets To Decide Future of Obama's Immigration Actions
WASHINGTON, D.C. (CNN) —
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.
