Not many people remember this. Obama promised reporters 22 different times that he wouldn’t pass amnesty through executive amnesty. “I cannot pass amnesty through executive action… I am not a dictator.”
He then did anyway. He bypassed Congress and ignored the rule of law that is the foundation of our American democracy. Jeff Sessions just ended that moments ago.
Attorney General Sessions: “Ending the previous administration’s disrespect for the legislative process is an important first step. All immigration policies should serve the interest of the people of the United States, lawful immigrant and native born alike… We are people of compassion and we are people of law. There is nothing compassionate about the failure to enforce immigration law. Enforcing the law saves lives, protects communities and tax payers, and prevents human suffering.”
