Supreme Court Refuses to Hear Amnesty Case

Obama’s Executive order on immigration and work visas has been a sore spot politically. Many Democrat supporters said that it was a necessary move. While Republicans have said that Obama’s executive order was an overreach.

There have been two federal hearings on the case and both have sided with the Republicans and against the president. The Supreme Court have been evenly split over the question. And based on this, they have refused to hear the case again.

Without comment, the justices refused Mr. Obama’s request for a rehearing of the case, on which the justices had deadlocked 4-4.
