In a 4-4 split decision (no decision), the U.S. Supreme Court effectively dealt President Barack Obama a defeat by allowing the lower court ruling to stand. It blocks his plan to spare millions of illegal immigrants from deportation. However, because of the priority list for deportations, it is unlikely that the vast majority of the 4 million illegal immigrants affected by this ruling will be deported anytime soon, or at least before the election. If Hillary Clinton is elected, she promises to double down on President Obama's executive actions. If Trump is elected, expect not only deportation of the 4 million, but also all 11 million illegals. We have a clear choice on election day. The stakes have just been raised.
