• White House: If Congress Doesn’t Pass What He Likes, Obama Will Grant Executive Amnesty

    At his post-election press conference Obama told reporters that he’s giving the new Republican Congress until the end of the year to either pass an immigration bill that he approves of, or watch him grant amnesty through executive order.

    “I have no doubt that there will be some Republicans who are angered or frustrated by any executive action that I may take,” a visibly upset Obama said Wednesday in his post-election news conference. “Those are folks, I just have to say, who are also deeply opposed to immigration reform, in any form, and blocked the House from being able to pass a bipartisan bill.”

    A plurality of public opinions polls show that a majority of Americans oppose legalizing illegal immigrants. And after Obama’s threat that he’ll circumvent the Constitutional process and act without Congress on immigration reform, Republican leaders are fighting back.

    In response to Obama’s threats, House Speaker John Boehner said “I’ve made clear to the president that if he acts unilaterally on his own, outside of authority, he will poison the well, And there will be no chance for immigration reform moving in this Congress. It’s as simple as that.”

    Tonight on CNN, Obama’s Senior Adviser, Dan Pfeiffer, responded to Boehner and doubled down on his bosses promise of executive amnesty.

    CNN’s Wolf Blitzer asked “if Congress doesn’t pass comprehensive immigration reform between now and the end of the year, the president will take unilateral action?”

    “As he said yesterday that is correct,” Pfeiffer responded.

    Fox News contributor and former federal judge Andrew Napolitano says Obama’s amnesty would be an impeachable act.

    “He will be violating the law, he will be breaking his oath, and he will be putting a tremendous pressure on the social system,” Napolitano says.
