Immigration Is Part of a Larger Pattern of Obama Ignoring the Law
"The president cannot write--or rewrite--the laws. The Constitution makes Congress the legislature, and the president cannot simply ignore its decisions.
The entire system of separation of powers--which is the heart of the Constitution's "checks and balances" designed to limit governmental power and thereby protect individual liberty--depends upon each branch of the federal government fulfilling its assigned role and respecting that of the others. Unfortunately, Mr. Obama has now made clear that he won't respect these basic constitutional limits on his power," say David B. Rifkin Jr. and Lee A. Casey in the Wall Street Journal.
