Poor logic again by the Supremes.

The Constitution perscribes federal control over NATIRALIZATION. Period.

They used this to say that it also deals with non-naturalization issues like employment, which are NOT naturalization issues.

Like the Commerce clause, they stretched the Constitution to cover areas it did not apply to.

Under their weird reasoning, it is now legal to be an illegal alien. It is also now legal to take illegal employment.

It’s 1984 again.

Isn't it actually the case that it is still illegal to be an illegal alien per federal law, but the ruling says a state cannot make and enforce the same law because of federal supremacy in this area?

It is still illegal to be an illegal alien, but the current (and several previous administrations) refuse to enforce those particular federal laws.
