In a busy start to the week, the Supreme Court added three new cases to its docket and issued a 4-4 order in a closely watched case about Pennsylvania election rules. The court agreed to decide the legality of two controversial Trump administration immigrations policies and to clarify the scope of when police officers may enter a person’s home without a warrant. And the court deadlocked in the Pennsylvania election case, with Chief Justice John Roberts siding with the three liberal justices in an order that leaves in place a Pennsylvania lower-court decision requiring mail-in ballots to be counted if they are received up to three days after Election Day.
