    What am I missing here? Obama in March 2011 said that he could not stop deportations of illegal aliens via Executive Order stating that it was unconstitutional. He then does it in 2012.

    Wut?

    Roberts will just roll his eyes and say it's really all a tax.

    SCOTUS is merely a rubber stamp for the Executive Branch. They serve no real purpose other than legitimizing Executive edicts.

    You must be talking about this:

    The Obama administration memo to John Morton, Director of I.C.E. (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) directs I.C.E. agents now to use “prosecutorial discretion” with regard to enforcing immigration laws.

    Obama said in the clip that making Executive Orders that contradict immigration laws are not appropriate and were in violation of the rule of law. He then does it one year later because it is politically expedient.
