The President's action strikes at the very heart of our separation of powers. The Constitution reserves to Congress alone the power to enact and alter law, and charges the President with the responsibility to faithfully execute those laws. …More
December 4, 2014: 
Executive Amnesty Prevention Act
This question transcends the issue of illegal immigration. The President's act has crossed a very bright line that separates the American Republic - that prides itself on being a nation of laws and not of men - from those unhappy regimes whose rulers boast that the law is in their mouths. …More

Sequester We Hardly Knew Ye
The great irony of the Republican decision to bust the budget sequester is that barely two months ago, congressional roles were reversed.  …More
