President Obama didn’t overstep his authority by issuing an executive order to implement the Deferred Action for Parents of Americans program. The House is entitled to express and rally support for comprehensive immigration reform.
The President’s executive orders on immigration violated both his authority under the Constitution and requirements for implementing regulations. Congress needs to fight back against executive overreach when it occurs, not encourage it.
