If Democrats cared more about the country than about their party, we would see impeachment and removal before Christmas based upon this statement.
President Obama was slightly annoyed after illegal immigration advocates interrupted him during his speech on his executive actions on immigration reform.
“Don’t just start yelling, young ladies,” Obama said as multiple women stood up to demand that Obama stop deporting people.
“I let you holler,” he said as they continued shouting. “You’ve got to listen to me too.”
Obama said that the protesters were right about a lot of illegal immigrants getting deported but that he was acting to change it.
“What you’re not paying attention to is the fact that I just took an action to change the law,” Obama said.
Obama is president -- and therefore lacks the authority or the power to change the law. He has therefore publicly admitted to an act that he knows to be unconstitutional. Congressional Republicans need to take any and all efficacious actions to undo his unconstitutional usurpation of congressional power. As noted above, though, that does not include impeachment, because Democrats in the Senate will not do their duty and vote to remove Obama for high crimes and misdemeanors. But this statement is evidence that should be used as a part of any lawsuit to overturn Obama's unlawful executive order.
