Congressman Gosar Responds to Unconstitutional
Grant of De Facto Amnesty
"President Obama Violates Rule of Law"
Prescott, AZ—Today, U.S. Congressman Paul Gosar, D.D.S (R-AZ) released the following statement regarding the Obama Administration’s decision to grant amnesty from deportation for certain aliens.
"Just when the American public is starting to think President Obama cannot go any further with his unconstitutional executive overreach—he reaches a new low. Obama has turned the Presidency into a monarchy. Only Congress is constitutionally authorized to change federal immigration law. The president’s directive is unconstitutional. Obama, his Cabinet, and his czars have shown from day one they believe they are above the law. They are not. The president cannot decree what laws will be enforced and what will be ignored."
"The constitution has checks and balances to prevent actions like these and the American people will not allow our Constitution to be ignored. I was elected to defend the constitution and will do so by fighting against this political power grab.”
