From T. Paine at Saving Common Sense:
Long before President Obama, specifically via his Department of Homeland Security, approved the unconstitutional directive to prevent the deportation of the children of illegal immigrants, he correctly stated no less than 22 separate times that he did not have the constitutional authority to overturn, amend, or violate existing immigration law that was duly passed. Regarding a theoretical executive branch mandate granting amnesty to illegal immigrants, President Obama specifically stated that,
“… for me to – simply through Executive Order – ignore those Congressional mandates would not conform with my appropriate role as President.”
And yet, President Obama proceeded with his un-constitutional DACA directive anyway.
