Texas AG: Obama 'Clearly Violated' Constitution With Amnesty Order

President Barack Obama "clearly violated the Constitution" when he bypassed Congress with his immigration action sparing illegal immigrants who are parents of citizens or lawful permanent residents from deportation, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton said Wednesday.

"He made a massive change in immigration law that Congress should have done, [which] authorizes new benefits for these people including work permits, unemployment insurance, Social Security, Medicare, driver's licenses and even international travel," Paxton told Fox News' "America's Newsroom" host Bill Hemmer. "We think Congress has to do that, not the president."

Fourteen months ago, Obama said he took the initiative for the program, Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Relations, or DAPA, because Republicans in Congress had refused repeatedly to support updates to immigration laws, The New York Times reports. On Tuesday, the Supreme Court agreed to hear a challenge to the law, filed by a Paxton-led group of 26 states.

Paxton said Wednesday that Obama had said for six years that he did not have the authority to change the law, before deciding to make the change.

Less than a year left of this POSPOTUS tyranny!

This was clear from the moment it was proposed by the POTUS, so why is now big news? The Texas AG is a bit behind others to proclaim this fact. Not only is the Amnesty unconstitutional, Obamacare is highly unconstitutional. Something needs to be done to dial back all this mess and get back to the way this country was designed to be governed.

10:21 - about the only thing that can be done to roll any of this crap back is to vote in true conservatives that actually care about the people...not Boehners, McConnels, and Ryans - they're all RINO's; some even recently 'outed'!

Congress is the problem with this POS POTUS.
Obama should have been impeached years ago. It's, again, their [Congress] inaction that's allowed all of the problems and issues that this administration has brought upon us.
While you're deciding on your vote for POTUS this fall remember also, that it was Congress who allowed this administration to further ruin this nation.

Wonder if Congress will let Trump run wild if he's elected like they did for Obama?
