Ryan: Supreme Court's 4-4 Vote a 'Win for the Constitution'

The Supreme Court's split 4-4 vote on President Barack Obama's immigration plan was a "win for the Constitution, a win for Congress, and a win in our fight to restore the separation of powers," House Speaker Paul Ryan said Thursday.

"Presidents don't write laws; Congress writes laws," Ryan said during his weekly press briefing. "This is a case that the House has been waiting on, because it's fundamental for a system of checks and balances. Congress, not the president, writes our laws and today, the Supreme Court allocated that fundamental principle."

The court's split over Obama's plan, which would have spared millions of immigrants in the
country illegally from being deported and would have given them work permits. The ruling left a lower-court's ruling that blocked the plan intact.

Earlier in the morning, Ryan's office issued a statement on the ruling, with him commenting that the ruling vindicated Article 1 of the Constitution.

"The Supreme Court's ruling makes the president's executive action on immigration null and void," said Ryan. "The Constitution is clear: The president is not permitted to write laws — only Congress is. This is another major victory in our fight to restore the separation of powers."
