Friday from the White House briefing room, President Obama told a room full of reporters that he and his administration have no other choice but to usurp the Constitution, and bypass Congress in order to deal with the current border crisis.
“I’m going to have to act alone, because we don’t have enough resources,” Obama warned.
When it comes to funding his lawless border initiative, Obama says his administration will have to reallocate funding in the meantime to cover some basic functions. “We’ve already been very clear: We’ve run out of money,” he says.
Meanwhile, the House of Representatives is in the midst of trying to pass a tougher border bill that will address the concerns of the more conservative caucus members, Breitbart News reports. And Harry Reid is likely on a plane ride back to Nevada, playing with Tonka Toys.
“In circumstances where even basic, commonsense, plain-vanilla legislation can’t pass because House Republicans consider it somehow a compromise of their principles, or giving Obama a victory, then we’ve got to take actions. Otherwise, we’re not going to be making progress on the things American people care about,” Obama said, blaming the GOP for his administration’s inability to tackle the border and immigration crisis months ago.
