Congress COULD curb Obama on immigration–IF they would

Obama on immigrationIt is not the Constitution that lets President Obama dictate immigration policy. His power comes from authority that Congress has delegated to the executive branch and which it could take away.

The¬†chairman of the House Judiciary Committee proposes changing the law so that President Obama’s bureaucrats no longer have exclusive power to enforce immigration laws. Obama’s refusal to enforce immigration laws would mean less if the nation’s 1-million state and local law officers shared enforcement authority with federal officials, says Chairman Robert Goodlatte (R, VA). That would undo a Supreme Court ruling that was based on current law.
