The program that was supposed to help fix the nation's immigration crisis and anchor President Obama's legacy has hit another setback. President Obama first announced "deferred action" for undocumented immigrants in 2012. When Congress failed to act, the President announced even broader executive actions in 2014 to protect immigrants who came to the US illegally as children – as well as some parents of US citizens. Twenty-six states sued and a federal judge blocked the program. Yesterday, an appeals court panel upheld that decision. Josh Gerstein, senior White House reporter for Politico, has more on what it means for Obama's immigration efforts.
