Funny you keep saying that, because a real reading of the ruling reinforces the legality of the Executive BRANCH of the US government setting various immigration standards and rules. In short, the federal government can tell the states it just does not have the time or resources to worry about young individuals who have been here a long time and who are not causing trouble, those who have honorably served in the military, etc.
AND.. even the approval of the citizenship checks is pending verification that it won't be used wrongly. One could easily say that far from endorsing the ideas, it is, instead giving Arizona enough rope to hang itself... and thus setting an easy precident.
But keep trying to claim there is only one legal branch of the US government and that Phattscotty is the leading expert on the US constitution.
Are you sure you actually know what the Constitution says? In fact, I think it clearly states in Article I that the Congress is responsible for setting rules of naturalization, not the executive branch. In fact, Article II actually states that the president is to faithfully execute the laws of the nation, which means he has to actually carry out the laws the Congress has passed and he or another president has signed. Obama has refused to do that when it comes to an arbitrary segment of illegal immigrants.
Go read tbe prevailing justice arguments. You are arguing with them, not me. I am just pointing out that phattscotty was falsely identifying what was said and not said and what Obama did.
