Pfeiffer: Obama Has No Choice But To Act On Immigration

From the Daily Caller:

WH Adviser Dan Pfeiffer: ‘The President Has No Choice But To Act’ On Immigration

By Brendan Bordelon | August 3, 2014

Top White House communications adviser Dan Pfeiffer claimed on Sunday that President Obama “has no choice but to act” and grant amnesty to as many as five million illegal immigrants — adding that the orders will be executed “at the end of the summer.”

Pfeiffer spoke to a skeptical George Stephanopoulos on ABC’s “This Week” about the rumored executive actions to work around Congress and enact the president’s preferred immigration policy. Stephanopoulos noted that last fall, President Obama claimed he did not have the authority to go it alone.

In fact, Obama has said this numerous times over the years. (Usually to Hispanic audiences.) Of course, that was back when he still had to be re-elected.

“Doesn’t a reversal like that fuel the arguments of those who say that the president is overstepping his authority?” he asked. Pfeiffer explained that “whatever [Obama] does in this space will not be a substitute for comprehensive immigration reform. Congress will still need to act.”

“But, because of Congress’ failure to fix the immigration system and to pass the supplemental appropriations will need to deal with the specific crisis on the border, the president has no choice but to act,” he added.

Because if Congress doesn’t do exactly what Obama wants, he has not choice but to break the law.

By the way, Mr. Obama does have another choice. He could do his job as chief executive of the United States and enforce our immigration laws that were enacted by Congress and signed by previous Presidents.

“And it’ll be in September?” Stephanopoulos later asked. “It’ll be at the end of the summer,” Pfeiffer agreed.

Yes, they must keep this threat alive through the summer in order to keep the impeachment talk alive.

From the Politico:

Pfeiffer: Don’t ‘discount the possibility’ of GOP moving to impeach Obama

By ERIC BRADNER | August 3, 2014

White House Senior Adviser Dan Pfeiffer repeated his insistence on Sunday that “it’d be foolish to discount the possibility” that the Republican-led House would move to impeach President Barack Obama.

“In the House of Representatives, John Boehner may have the gavel, but Ted Cruz has the power,” Pfeiffer said on ABC’s “This Week.” …

If. Only.
