WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court on Thursday announced that it had deadlocked in a case challenging President Obama’s immigration plan, a sharp blow to an ambitious program that Mr. Obama had hoped would become one of his central legacies. As a result, as many as five million undocumented immigrants will not be shielded from deportation or allowed to legally work in the United States.

We have homeless citizens here already, who need help finding work and stability.
They need help more than trying to find jobs for only new people.
implement more thorough immigration policies. Increase border security. Make it fair for everyone, not just immigrants looking to enter the states for a better life, but citizens at home whom lives will be impacted by immigration.
But the gridlock forced Obama to admit that he is out of moves on immigration and Garland's nomination.

I don't think you have a clue about how 70-80% of us live. We do all that stuff ourselves as well as working 1-2 jobs. Most of us barely have the funds to afford daycare for the kids...and maids/housekeepers lmao...those are for the richer folks which most of us are not. The most effected industry that I have seen a large majority use that probably employs illegals would be the lawn care industry. I'm sure there might be a few others like that, but you seem to be going full on stereotype here.

Lawn care, construction, and agriculture are the big three that I noticed while living in California for the first 19 years of my life.
The crazy thing is, many of my friends in high school did the same jobs during the summer time and were happy to have the job and be getting a pay check. The claim that many make that these are jobs that Americans would not do is preposterous--right now, we just prefer not to do them because somebody else is in there cornering the market for cheaper. If that changed, there would be plenty of Americans lining up for the jobs.

Poor Obama is at a loss and so dejected.
