Immigration Project Reacts To Supreme Court Deadlock
The U.S. Supreme Court deadlocked on its consideration whether President Obama has authority to shield millions of undocumented immigrants from deportation.
This leaves unresolved big questions whether states have standing to sue the administration and whether the administration has the authority to issue such broad executive orders.
The decision leaves a lower court ruling standing and has practical consequences for millions of immigrants and their children in the U.S. Jasmine McGee is the Executive Director of the Immigration Project, which serves 85 counties in central and southern Illinois. In this converation with GLT's Charlie Schlenker, McGee says this adds to what what already happening in the immigrant community.
