Supreme Court's Immigration Decision A Setback To California's Health Coverage Efforts

He said an approval by the court of Obama's executive orders "would have been a recognition of the positive impact the millions of Mexican immigrants have on the social fabric of this society and the economic growth of this country". "That's why I want to stay right here in the United States to make more money".

The tie lets a lower court decision stand, blocking two of the president's executive orders.

Obama has said that his executive actions on immigration stemmed from his frustration with the Republican-led Congress' refusal to consider a path to citizenship for immigrants here illegally.

These are the voices of only a few of the millions who are being affected by the Supreme Court's block against President Obama's immigration plan. Donald Trump, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, won the primaries while railing against Obama administration immigration policies as unsafe.

In a statement Thursday, Trump said that the Supreme Court ruling has blocked one of the most unconstitutional actions ever undertaken by a President.

Cruz, who suspended his campaign earlier, has already declared that he would not step in to take the place of a disqualified Mr. The concerns over Trump are not shared by everyone. "They can save their party by not aiding its nominee", he wrote.

The 4-4 tie vote left no national precedent.

If Clinton wins, the Senate will at some point fill the vacancy created by Scalia's death - either with Obama's nominee, Judge Merrick Garland, or a Clinton choice. DACA youth should keep in mind the next president could choose to get rid of the program. We are at a constitutional tipping point in this country where the president has been trying to write laws.

Vargas added that the immigration reform bill must be advanced because it is the "only law that is going to fix the situation". But he said the practical effect would be to freeze his efforts on behalf of immigrants until after the November election.

Stephanie Teatro, Co-Executive Director of the Tennessee Immigrant and Refugee Rights Coalition, says the ruling is a devastating blow for 38,000 undocumented immigrants in the state. The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals also ruled for the states, and the Justice Department rushed an appeal to the high court so that it could be heard this term. Abigail Fisher sued the University of Texas after she was denied admission to the school. But after hearing the Supreme Court ruling, she's back to living in fear.
