King: We are headed for a Constitutional crisis if President grants amnesty

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Steve King released the following statement in reaction to the leaked amnesty details this morning:

“This President has been floating the trial balloon on executive amnesty for a long time,” said King. “Today, new details surfaced that the President plans to attempt amnesty as early as next Friday, sending us into a Constitutional crisis.

The President was right when he said on March 28, 2011, ‘with respect to the notion that I can just suspend deportations through executive order, that’s just not the case, because there are laws on the books that Congress has passed.’ And when he said, on May 10, 2011, ‘sometimes when I talk to immigration advocates, they wish I could just bypass Congress and change the law myself. But that’s not how a democracy works.’ Well, now we know that his belief about ‘how democracy works’ was a ploy. Now he wants to unilaterally rewrite immigration law granting illegal amnesty to millions.

The audacity of this President to think he can completely destroy the Rule of Law with the stroke of a pen is unfathomable to me. It is unconstitutional, it is cynical, and it violates the will of the American people. Our Republic will not stand if we tolerate a President who is set upon the complete destruction of the Rule of Law.

I am calling on all of my colleagues in the House to use the power of the purse to protect our Article I authority. This is about defending our oath to the Constitution too. We cannot allow Barack Obama’s anticipated, unconstitutional act to be implemented, for if it is it will destroy the pillars of American Exceptionalism. Come what may – we must always protect the Constitution.”

You know a lot of people bad mouth King and I am not a fan of his far right policy’s. But when he is right, he is right. And, there must be a lot more who like him as he was just re-elected. One thing about him, he is an American and proud of it. As long as he stays off the bible pounding I will support him.

Mr Ebola cares little about America/people. He wants to destroy us. His intentions all along were to help HIS people!

@MC Citizen-You are entirely correct. He looks at the illegals as future Democratic voters and doesn’t mind destroying our country to put in his philosophy.

You speaking about King here or Obama?

Just what are the details of Obama’s plan that has Mr. King so willing to tear apart our government? Are they based in fact or fear?

@Mediator-where have you been. It has been all over the news. All you have to do is read it or listen to it.

I’ve actually been very busy. I did google it and got no results for that phrase. (which is why I asked you) Since you are using it, surely you have a source. Please share it.

Whoops, was carrying on the wrong conversation. But, again, I’d appreciate an answer to my question.

@mediator-Obama. Sorry, that was confusing.

I think that this muslim president has already tore this country apart, two more years of his unconstitutional BS and there might not be nothing left unless someone stands up to him.The details of his plan, the only plan he has is to destroy this country.What do you think will happen to this country when 12 million plus illegal immigrants are given amnesty? That’s 12 million plus, plus all their relatives that are not yet here. Once that amnesty door is open, they will all come. Goodbye…

Our country will not last 2 years, soon very soon something drastic will happen so obama can declare martial law. Trust me when I say we have seen our last election.

@ maybe, I agree with you but people like King and the rest of Americans will not put up with it. The American people voted the way they did because they are sick of this President. No Senate dem wanted him anywhere near him in their campaigns.

I voted for King but I am afraid that a politician is a politician and the majority of them don’t have the stones to stand up to the administration. Too many experts have said that within a couple months the economy will collapse but they do have a way out but the administration refuses to do anything about it. All I have to say is that IF you stock up on food and water, stock up on ammo too because those that are not ready will seek out those that are.

So Jim Mowrer, an Iraqi veteran, soldier, and auditor at the Pentagon…saving the American taxpayers millions of dollars…went by unnoticed by a fellow soldier. Yet Steve King did not serve in the military. I guess the color RED must be stronger than the supposed band of brothers and soldiers. Jim had a challenging face to look at, but he sure had his politics right.
