From the front page of the paper: “Asserting his [Pres. Obama] authority to enforce the nations laws with discretion.” (See: President will defy GOP, go it alone on immigration,” Friday, Nov. 14)
Let me state categorically that no such authority exists.
The only thing the Constitution says is this: Art. II Sec. 3 (4) — “He shall take care that the laws be faithfully executed.”
Additionally, we must note that his chosen vehicle for carrying out this travesty is the executive order which is not even mentioned in the Constitution.
To write law and/or selectively enforced laws in this manner is obviously unconstitutional and clearly constitutes an impeachable offense.
To even argue otherwise is to deny the English language and defy common sense.
Democrats should be careful, the next president with a pen and a phone might be a Republican!
