    Should serve as an interesting precedent but I imagine they will just reconfirm the same appointees if SCOTUS rules that Obama exceeded his Constitutional authority.

    In June of last year, the Obama Administration’s Department of Homeland Security issued a memorandum telling U.S. immigration officials how they should “enforce the Nation’s immigration laws against certain young people who were brought to this country as children and know only this country as home.” The move essentially served to implement major portions of the DREAM Act—which has been introduced and failed in Congress more than 30 times—by executive fiat..."<

    That's fine, just do it right.

    It' not about whether or not the appointees would be approved today, it is all about whether the president exceeded his Constitutional authority.

    No more than you see pitchforks and devils horns. Just like the T's in the House spending ALL their time with futile and increasingly idiotic dreams of wiping the record of the 1st black president out of the history books you will be a loser too. How does that feel?

    I don't want to wipe his record from the history books. Of course you had to play the race card.

    Exactly what does his skin color have to do with the possibility of abusing EO powers?

    It is his nature to claim racism when he finds no other suitable defense.
