3 Ways Congress Can Fight Back on Obama’s Amnesty

Seven Members of Congress have sketched out a path for Congress to take on the President’s unconstitutional “executive action” giving millions of illegal aliens’ amnesty.

“In a letter to House Speaker John Boehner and House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, signed by Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ) as well as Reps. Mo Brooks (R-AL), Ted Poe (R-TX), Cynthia Lummis (R-WY), Bill Posey (R-FL), Steve Stockman (R-TX) and Paul Broun (R-GA), lays out a three-step plan, beginning with moving a short-term spending measure that defunds Obama’s executive orders.

The seven then want to pass an authorization to sue Obama over his actions and finally restrict all funding that would go toward providing work permits or green cards to illegal immigrants.

The conservative House members write that they believe Obama’s actions violate Article II, Section 3 of the Constitution, that the president “…take care that the laws be faithfully executed…”

“There is too much at risk for this lawlessness to go unchallenged,” they write. “

At least some members of Congress are taking the threat of President Obama’s unconstitutional amnesty seriously. Many of these proposals would at least allow for some restraint to Obama’s nearly-limitless grab for supreme power.

And it is better than many of those in the establishment who believe Congress can’t do anything about Obama or perhaps secretly sympathize with Obama’s drastic amnesty push.
