The executive order, which President Obama has issued, granting amnesty to millions of individuals now residing illegally in our country, should make clear the profound disregard our president has for American voters, our constitution, and our two-party system.
It might be possible to justify this action if it was addressing a national emergency of utmost urgency or clearly reflected the priorities and wishes of the American people. But neither is the case.
Republicans just won a decisive election, giving them control of both houses of congress, interpreted uniformly as a repudiation of the president and his agenda. more >>
Outspoken Republican Senator from Texas Ted Cruz called on the in-coming Republican-majority Senate to block any presidential nominee until President Barack Obama rescinds his executive action on immigration.
In a column published by Politico on Wednesday, Cruz stated that the U.S. Senate should act to check President Obama's executive power.
President Barack Obama appealed to the Good Book on Thursday evening when he addressed the nation regarding his executive order on immigration amnesty.
During his speech, Obama alluded to the Old Testament law that mandated that the Ancient nation of Israel look after the foreigners among them.

Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, will focus on the IRS scandal as the House's new head executive watchdog. He was appointed as the next chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on Tuesday.
Replacing the term-limited Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., the 47-year-old Chaffetz will now chair the committee that has been a leading force behind the House investigation into the scandal involving the Internal Revenue Service's targeting of conservative and Christian groups.
"The faith placed in me by my colleagues today is a tremendous honor and privilege. I am fully committed to taking on difficult tasks that a chairmanship requires," Chaffetz said in a statement. "I have great respect for Chairman Darrell Issa and can't thank him enough for his many years of dedicated service leading the Oversight Committee. I thank him for the professional opportunities he has allowed me on the committee." more >>
Dear President Obama,
You've been a great friend for the last six years and, to express our appreciation, we'd like to acknowledge some of your many helpful actions:
1) In 2009, our presidential election results were so dubious that millions of brave, pro-democracy protesters risked their lives to demonstrate throughout our country. When our Basij paramilitary force brutalized them, you kept your response irrelevantly mild for the sake of "engaging" us. That surely helped Iranians understand the risks of protesting our "free" election of 2012 (involving our eight handpicked candidates). It was indeed a very orderly rubberstamp. more >>
