Last week, President Obama announced his unprecedented, irresponsible, and illegal plan to grant amnesty to over 5 million illegal immigrants. On saturday, I spoke with US Congressman Jeff Duncan (R-SC) about this. He made it clear that while Republicans and the President differ on immigration, the larger issue was that the President chose to bypass congress with his executive order, and that he “thumbed his nose” at the american people.
First, we need to make it clear that what President Obama can and cannot do through executive order. We cannot continue to allow him to get away with his unconstitutional Executive Orders, or we will undermine the foundation of our republic forever.
Second, we need to secure the border, stop amnesty, and deport those here illegally.
