U.S. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump on Thursday praised the Supreme Court's decision on immigration that blocks President Obama's plan to shield thousands of illegal immigrants from deportation.

"Today's 4-4 Supreme Court ruling has blocked one of the most unconstitutional actions ever undertaken by a President," Trump said in a statement.
