President Obama's Executive Action...illegal? I think not!

In an interesting twist to the ongoing debate about immigration, a Federal Court in PA held that President's Obama's executive action on immigration -- namely, shifting enforcement priorities and granting defacto status to illegal aliens -- including work authorization -- is illegal.
3. Conclusion
President Obama's unilateral legislative action violates the separation of powers provided for in the United States Constitution as well as the Take Care Clause, and therefore, is unconstitutional. (Case: 14-0180, Western District PA, Judge Arthur Schwab, 16 December 2014).

I tend to think this is a rather dim and narrow view of the President's ability to direct his agencies in the prosecution of their duties. However, it is an interesting case. See: PA Court challenges the President's immigration reform.
