Supreme Court Tie Blocks Obama Immigration Plan – NY Times

Golly, who knew that the President can’t unilaterally change a law with an Executive Order?  Oh, that’s right.. anyone that had a basic civics class in Junior High.

The fact that this ruling was 4-4 should serve as a stark reminder that four of the judges on the Supreme Court are nothing more than puppets.  This is constitutional law and separation of powers at its most basic; There’s no gray area here.  To have four of the judges vote against the appellate court’s ruling is deeply concerning.  If they will support the President on this issue, they will support him on anything no matter how unconstitutional.
