Opinion analysis: Obama immigration plan all but doomed : SCOTUSblog


potentially historic results:

First, a policy that the president had announced with great fanfare in November 2014 amid his disappointment with inaction in Congress, a policy that had never been allowed to go into effect, was now facing the prospect of never doing so.

Second, a group of twenty-six states with Republican leaders had gained a historic new opportunity to use the courts as a way to wage policy combat with a Democratic president.

Third, more than four million undocumented immigrants who had seen a chance to stay in the country and get jobs were facing a complete loss of that opportunity.

Fourth, the president’s claim to use the discretionary powers of his office when government gridlock stalled official action in Washington had been rebuked.

Thanks. God bless.
