    It's the Deferred Action for Parents of Americans (DAPA) program

    President Obama’s 2014 immigration order — the Deferred Action for Parents of Americans (DAPA) program — will not be allowed to go into effect, the result of a 4–4 split decision of the Supreme Court on Thursday. The ruling also prevents an expansion of Obama’s other program, the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), from going into effect.

    "The Gavel Gap": Despite women making up more than 50% of the population, the same report reveals that they represent only about 30% of the judges — a number that plays out across regions of the country.
