In a 4-4 decision today by the U.S. Supreme Court, the President’s executive actions for immigration relief remain blocked.
“The Supreme Court today failed to act on the opportunity to allow implementation of vital relief programs for nearly 5 million people, including more than 400,000 Asian American immigrants,” said Mee Moua, president and executive director of Asian Americans Advancing Justice | AAJC. “We are disappointed in their split decision, which further underscores the need to have nine Justices on the Supreme Court.”
