    WASHINGTON—The Supreme Court Monday dashed President Barack Obama’s hopes of having his immigration plan reconsidered before he leaves office—turning down a White House request to try again to resolve the program’s legality after deadlocking 4-4 in June.

    The Supreme Court’s tie-vote left in place a lower-court decision temporarily blocking implementation of the Deferred Action for Parents of Americans program. The plan would provide work authorization to more than four million illegal immigrants whose children are U.S. citizens or lawful residents. A 26-state coalition led by Texas has sued opposing the plan.
