Obama appeals to Supreme Court over his immigration plan

Share

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Obama administration will ask the Supreme Court to weigh in on the president’s plan to shield as many as 5 million immigrants living in the country illegally from deportation.

The Justice Department says it disagrees with the 2-1 ruling and will appeal to the high court.
