"Your actions demonstrate an astonishing disregard for the Constitution, the rule of law, and the rights of American citizens and legal residents," the senators wrote in a letter to Obama. "Our entire constitutional system is threatened when the Executive Branch suspends the law at its whim and our nation’s sovereignty is imperiled when the commander-in-chief refuses to defend the integrity of its borders."...All the letters the congress could write to the president, complaining about him going around them, are not going to change the way President Obama is presiding, which is in effect, President Obama going around the Congress. The only constitutional remedy is removal from office. And that is not going to happen as long as the polls say so. Not to mention the racial component. So why do I put up this post?... It needs to be said. It needs to be said that no president should be allowed to pick and chose which laws he is going to enforce. Not even Obama, period.
"These policies have operated as an effective repeal of duly enacted federal immigration laws and exceed the bounds of the Executive Branch’s prosecutorial discretion," the senators wrote. "It is not the province of the Executive to nullify the laws that the people of the United States, through their elected representatives, have chosen to enact. Congress has not passed laws permitting people to illegally enter the country or to ignore their visa expiration dates, so long as they do not have a felony conviction or other severe offense on their record."
So go ahead Congress, write more letters to the president, better yet, lets all go ahead and write the president and tell him he needs to faithfully adhere not just to the letter of laws but to the spirit of laws as well.
