Default U.S. top court appears unlikely to revive Obama immigration plan

By Lawrence Hurley

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama's bid to save his plan to spare millions of immigrants in the country illegally from deportation and give them work permits ran into trouble on Monday at the U.S. Supreme Court in a case testing the limits of presidential power.

The court, with four conservative justices and four liberals, seemed divided along ideological lines during 90 minutes of arguments in the case brought by 26 states led by Texas that sued to block Obama's unilateral 2014 executive action that bypassed Congress.

Liberal justices voiced support for Obama's action. The conservatives sounded skeptical. A 4-4 decision would be a grim defeat for Obama because it would uphold lower court rulings that threw out his action last year and doom his quest to revamp a U.S. immigration policy he calls broken.

The sad part about this is it won't stop obama from violating a court ruling.

Default Re: U.S. top court appears unlikely to revive Obama immigration plan

I predict the girls club will follow the in violate Constitutional principle of give Obama what he wants. Bader Ginsberg and the wise Latina will vote to allow the President to rewrite the law to protect "law abiding" illegal aliens. Kagan as always will do as she is told by the Obama administration. It will be interesting to see if Roberts concocts another so-called statutory interpretation allowing President Obama to rule by decree when Congress doesn’t please him.

A 4-4 split would allow the lower court ruling to stand but it would also lend credibility to President's rewriting laws without Congress. Obama can simply issue a flood of executive decrees bypassing Congress with a 50/50 chance that the SCOTUS ruling on them would be packed with Left wing activist justices.
