All that said, I'm not really very keen on the POTUS and AG unilaterally deciding not to enforce legally enacted federal laws. The proper procedure is to rescind those laws. All that said, I don't really know what the history is around "Presidential nullification" if you will, of laws by failing to enforce them.
Muh bad
