Congress must fight Obama executive amnesty now

Nov. 19, 2014, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Nathan Mehrens today issued the following statement in response to reports that Obama will issue an unlawful executive amnesty order in Las Vegas, Nevada tomorrow:

“No issue dominated the 2014 elections more than opposition to President Obama arbitrarily issuing executive amnesty for millions of illegal immigrants. Congress should cancel all plane flights and deal with this constitutional crisis of Obama’s making immediately. There can be no question that failure to fight would make Congress complicit in this unconstitutional executive branch power grab. This is not a battle that anyone wanted, but Congress simply cannot allow President Obama to shred the separation of powers while they’re traveling back home for a holiday.”
