Trump commends Supreme Court immigration ruling


Presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump is commending the Supreme Court's decision blocking President Barack Obama's efforts to shield millions living in the U.S. illegally from deportation.

Trump says in a statement that, "Today's 4-4 Supreme Court ruling has blocked one of the most unconstitutional actions ever undertaken by a president."

He says the split decision "makes clear what is at stake in November."

The Supreme Court deadlocked 4-4, effectively killing the president's effort to provide protections for parents of children who are in the country legally and an expansion of the program that benefits people who were brought to this country as children.

Trump has vowed to deport all of the roughly 11 million people living in the United States illegally.
