U.S. Department of Justice Seeks a Definite Decision on President Obama's Executive Actions on Immigration

On July 18, 2016, the U.S. Department of Justice asked the U.S. Supreme Court for a rehearing before nine justices in the case over President Obama’s executive actions on immigration, highlighting the need for a definitive decision on the matter instead of the non-precedential 4-4 split reached by the high court in June 2016.
