NEW YORK (AP) — Immigrants living in the U.S. without legal authorization and their advocates are deeply disappointed over a Supreme Court deadlock on an immigration plan that would have kept many from being deported.
But they’re also resolved that this isn’t the end of the fight.
The deadlock means a lower court ruling blocking President Barack Obama’s executive actions remains in effect.
The outcome puts even more pressure on the result of the presidential election. Democrat Hillary Clinton has spoken out in support of the executive actions, while Republican Donald Trump says he intends to build a border wall and deport all 11 million immigrants in the country illegally.
