McCaul: I will use every tool at my disposal to stop the presidents unconstitutional actions...

House Homeland Security Committee chair says actions threaten our Democracy McCaulWASHINGTON D.C. (Texas Insider Report)   On Thursday night President Obama decided to go it alone by issuing an Executive Order granting amnesty for millions of undocumented immigrants who crossed our borders illegally. This action is a politically motivated slap in the face to the American people and our Constitution and he lacks the authority to do so" said House Homeland Security Committee chairman Cong. Michael McCaul (R-TX) immediately following President Obamas executive actions announcement Thursday evening. In fact 22 times throughout his presidency President Obama has stated he lacked the authority to act on immigration without Congress said McCaul. As chairman of the House of Representatives Homeland Security Committee I will use every tool at my disposal to stop the presidents unconstitutional actions from being implemented."

History has proven that unilateral action on immigration simply perpetuates a cycle of illegal entry into this country. This was true under the 1986 amnesty and it has been true under DACA which enticed 60000 unaccompanied children to make the perilous journey across our border this summer McCaul said. The presidents decision to bypass Congress and grant amnesty to millions of unlawful immigrants is unconstitutional and a threat to our democracy. There is no doubt our immigration system is broken and needs to be fixed but this does not mean the president has the authority to act without Congress. We will see a wave of illegal immigration because of the presidents actions and in no way is the Department of Homeland Security prepared to handle such a surge. And furthermore the president knows any immigration reforms will be ineffective as long as our border remains insecure said McCaul. Prior to the presidents announcement McCaul and Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) chairman of the Committee on the Judiciary co-signed a letter to the president telling him that any executive actions on immigration would be a slap in the face to the American people and the Constitution.
