SCOTUS split on Obama's immigration executive actions

The Supreme Court appears to be ideologically divided over President Obama's executive actions on immigration. 

During oral arguments in United States v. Texas, conservative justices challenged Obama's authority to use executive power to determine and protect the fate of 4 million undocumented immigrants and their families. Texas has been arguing against Obama exercising federal power on the state.

If the court ruling is a tie, which is a possibility following the death of Justice Antonin Scalia, it would mean the case will be decided by a conservative lower court that blocked President Obama's actions. 

Should SCOTUS uphold Obama's executive actions or should it block the president's actions?
