    The other measures include calls to revise removal priorities to target serious criminals for deportation and end the program known as "Secure Communities" and start a new program.....snip~

    He's got a majority against him in Congress, with the last election, but not enough to reach the votes necessary. It'll depend on how far he reaches, and where he compromises to assuage opposition. I'm sure he'll have a bullpen of legal eagles drawing up boundaries. He keeps underestimating things.. like the elections, ISIS, Ebola and the Russians, which doesn't bode well for a track record.

During the interview, Sessions explained that President Obama not only lacks the authority to do what is outlined in a released plan, but it's against the law.

    "Fundamentally the President has no authority to do this, it's against the law," Sessions said. "Congress can stop it and must stop it. It's really a threat to constitutional order."

    Earlier this year, liberal George Washington University Law Professor Jonathan Turley warned about President Obama's executive overreach, saying we will reach a constitutional tipping point if Congress doesn't do something to restore the balance of power between the legislative and executive branches of government......snip~

    It doesn't really matter if someone interprets the action as law breaking if they don't get the votes required to impeach or overrule.

    "Congress may attempt to overturn an executive order by passing legislation (a bill) that opposes the order. However, the President can veto that bill, and Congress would then need to override that veto to pass the bill."

    That's good. Because if FOXNews had their way, Obama farting on Air Force 1 would be an impeachable offense. LOL!

    We also know the House adjourned July 31st without acting and this was a successful election strategy.
    We saw Obama's message about acting uniformly last summer not work.

    As Iowa Gov. Branstad said before the election, Obama's damned if he does and damned if he doesn't.
    Obama wasn't going to change people who voted against him anyway with executive action before the election.

    I would surmise that his White House team simply wasn't organized enough to put together something coherent on EA,
    especially with everything else on its plate like Ebola and ISIL for starters.

    By hanging his Latino American base out to dry with no EA, they didn't come out to vote for Democrats and cost Senators like Udall their election .


    Boehner Will Fight ‘Tooth and Nail’ Against Obama’s Executive Amnesty, Doesn’t Rule Out Shutdown (Updated) (Video).....
    Speaker John A. Boehner said Republicans will fight “tooth and nail” against President Barack Obama’s plans to act on immigration by himself, and didn’t rule out a government shutdown.

    “We’re going to fight the president tooth and nail if he continues down this path,” the Ohio Republican said at a press conference introducing the new GOP leadership team. “This is the wrong way to govern. This is exactly what the American people said on Election Day they didn’t want. And so, all the options are on the table.”

    Boehner is facing pressure from conservatives to pre-emptively defund any amnesty, but that could lead to a shutdown fight......snip~

    We won't use social media to look at the Presidency. We will be looking at their own documents and the documents of the opposition leaders and Party, not the words of normal people.

    They don't have to impeach either.....they can censure. Still.....creating a new program would be the violation. He would then have broken Constitutional Law. As he cannot change what was legislated and passed.

    It still takes a supermajority vote, which is unlikely.

    The News has been trying to blame new diseases like the Enterovirus D68, that had kids sick with a paralyzing respiratory flu, and Chikungunya (similar to Dengue fever-break bone disease) on border lapses and illegals. They've even said that Ebola could eventually spread to Mexico or South American and come here unchecked.
