US immigration reform debate

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton on US Supreme Court ruling on President Obama's immigration action: 'Today's decision keeps in place what we have maintained from the very start: one person, even a president, cannot unilaterally change the law. This is a major setback to President Obama's attempts to expand executive power, and a victory for those who believe in the separation of powers and the rule of law'

US immigration reform debate

Editor's note: A tie vote by the U.S. Supreme Court blocks President Obama's immigration plan that sought to shield some 4 million undocumented immigrants from deportation. This is a victory for Texas, where a federal judge put a stop to Obama's plan, and for the 25 states who joined the suit. Two of three remaining high-profile cases were decided today, and Chief Justice John Roberts said the last cases will be decided Monday. - Rebecca
