The United States Constitution and our founding fathers stipulated the people are represented in our federal government by our elected representatives in Congress. President Obama would rather circumvent Congress since it’s not controlled by Democrats.
From the Washington Examiner.
… President Obama told a Hispanic group in Washington Wednesday that when it comes to the issue of immigration, “I’d like to work my way around Congress.”
“As I mentioned when I was at La Raza a few weeks back, I wish I had a magic wand and could make this all happen on my own,” Obama told a meeting of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus. “There are times where — until Nancy Pelosi is speaker again — I’d like to work my way around Congress.”
He implies enforcement – or non-enforcement – of laws is really subject to his own opinion, depending on the day and the crowd he’s speaking in front of.
This seems to be a topic he keeps bringing up. I’d like to do this for you, but unfortunately, we have to work with Congress to get things done … you know, those elected officials you sent to Washington…
The foundation of our country is crumbling.
