    executive action can only do so much without proper legislation and congress is failing its duty as part of the legislative branch. congress is failing to act, failing to debate, and yet the president gets blamed when he tries to act.

    I would say that the House is doing what it can considering the current climate of rancor that this administration has enabled. Tell me, of the house measures passed, how many have made it to a vote in the Senate? Do you know?

    Oh, and you try to tell me that I don't know what an EO is designed for, yet this administration tries to wield them like blunt objects, much like a dictator would do....And supporters cheer....Be wary of where this criminal is taking power, and don't whine when the next republican administration uses it too.

    there currently is a immigration bill that passed in the senate in 2013 and is currently stuck in the house.

    it is called S.744

    But this is not about immigration. It's about securing the border.

    immigration requires secure borders and immigration reform.

    you cannot separate the two.

    so you want the president to to use executive action instead of actually waiting for the legislative branch to actually write a bill.
