A slap in the face to the rule of law, all Americans and all immigrants.

Good. Obama's executive fiat has been shown to have no teeth. States are carrying on as before. The 'deferral' is merely an election-year ploy by Obama to show illegal aliens that he is a sympathizer.

But from a pure jurisprudence POV, this is an interesting dilemma for states. Prior to the Deferred Act, young undocumented immigrants were part of one group that were specifically prohibited from getting state benefits. After the DA kicks in, they will have been legally moved from the first group to a second group that is technically not prohibited from state benefits, therefore there is not really a legal basis on which to exclude them.
What to do, what to do.
