The White House is panicking this week after 43 Senate Republicans came together to file an amicus brief with the United States Supreme Court that directly challenges Obama’s unconstitutional executive orders about amnesty.
According to The Political Insider, the Senators claimed in their brief that Obama’s orders to give millions of illegal aliens amnesty are in “stark contravention to federal law.” They argue that because of this, the Supreme Court needs to review the executive amnesty plan as soon as possible.
Led by Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), the Senators argued that with his immigration orders, Obama is basically making law from the White House. This clearly threatens the separation of powers laid out by the Constitution.
“There is little doubt that [Obama] adopted the Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents (“DAPA”) program as part of an explicit effort to circumvent the legislative process,” the Republicans’ friend-of-the-court brief read.
This brief came just one month after he Republican-led House of Representatives voted to green-light an amicus brief of their own arguing against the Obama administration. They also filed their brief on Monday, and it argues that “neither any immigration law now on the books nor the Constitution empowers [Obama] to authorize—let alone facilitate—the prospective violation of those laws on a massive class-wide scale.”
We applaud the Republicans in Congress for finally taking a stand against Obama. SHARE if you support these briefs against him!
