The GOP Reacts to Obama's Immigration Order

President Obama Announces Executive Action on Immigration


One day after President Obama made an Executive Order on Immigration to help those caught in a tangle with deportation, the GOP has decided to "sue" him over it. Yes, sue him. Good luck with that. Every President in the past 50 years has used Executive action, and several have used it to deal with Immigration. So the law is clearly on the side of the President, who has the power to do good with his office, even when Congress decides to go to sleep, take a vacay, and ignore the will of the people.

From Washington Post
The lawsuit, filed Friday against the Health & Human Services (HHS) and Treasury secretaries, challenges two of Obama’s executive actions: that his adminstration “unlawfuly waived the employer mandate” and illegally transferred funds to insurance companies.

Boehner declined to spell out how Republicans would counter the immigration executive actions, which extend protections to roughly 4 million undocumented parents of legal U.S. citizens and young immigrants brought here illegally when they were children.

“We’re working with our members and looking at the options available to us, but I will say to you the House will, in fact, act,” Boehner told reporters Friday morning, in the first televised Republican rebuttal to Obama’s prime-time address Thursday night.

Steve Schmidt of MSNBC went a little nuts over President Obama's Immigration Order, saying that now "We'll never know" if or when the GOP would have come up with a bill on their own. But ya know . . . they sort of had YEARS to come up with a bill, a plan, a man, a canal, Panama, whatever, and they never did. Now would they ever. So what Schmidt is really upset about is that the GOP can't take credit for immigration reform during the 2016 Presidential Election.
