    The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday denied a request to rehear a case concerning its executive actions on President Obama's immigration policy, NBC News reported.

    Unable to reach a decision in June, the justices tied 4-4, leaving a lower court order intact that blocked the immigration plan from going into effect.

    Obama's immigration programs would shield more than four million people from deportation. Texas and 25 other states sued after it was announced in 2014, claiming the president had no power to order the changes. But the court's tie prevented a decision on the merits of that claim.
