    President Obama Remarks on Immigration Executive Actions Ruling

    President Obama reacted to the Supreme Court’s 4-4 ruling in U.S. v. Texas, which upheld a lower court’s injunction against the Obama administration’s deferred-action immigration policy. The bulk of his remarks and questions from reporters focused on the court’s 4-4 split decision in the case. The decision left in place a lower court’s injunction against the president’s 2014 executive action on immigration, which placed certain undocumented immigrants at the lowest level of enforcement priority. He said the decision had less of an impact than it would have if the court had a ninth member confirmed by the Senate. President Obama also said the Republican Party’s strategy on immigration would be “broken” by the upcoming election.
