(Breitbart) – Rep. Steve King (R-IA) believes the House of Representatives will immediately begin impeachment proceedings if President Barack Obama unilaterally grants work permits and amnesty to millions more illegal immigrants by the “end of summer.”
Appearing on Breitbart News Saturday with co-hosts Breitbart News Executive Chairman Stephen K. Bannon and Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow from the U.S.-Mexico border in Texas, King said that if Obama “completely destroys the rule of law with the stroke of a pen” and “Congress fails to act,” there will be “enough Republicans who didn’t have a desire to do this” that will be “immediately activated” to consider impeachment.
“From my standpoint, if the president [enacts more executive actions], we need to bring impeachment hearings immediately before the House of Representatives,” King said. “That’s my position and that’s my prediction.”
The Congressional Hispanic Caucus has given Obama a six-page wish list of executive actions, and Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) said Obama may give temporary amnesty and work permits to five million more illegal immigrants by expanding the Deferred Amnesty for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program to the parents of illegal immigrants. King called that program lawless and unconstitutional.
The Congressional Hispanic Caucus has even recommended that Obama give amnesty, by executive fiat, to every illegal immigrant who would have received it under the Senate’s comprehensive amnesty bill. In other words, amnesty for nearly all of the illegal immigrants in the country who are not hardened criminals.
King said Obama’s bold executive actions “would cause a thunderclap of eruption in Congress and from the American people” that Republicans will not be able to ignore. After calling illegal immigration “a virus that is eating away at the rule of law,” King also denounced Obama’s lawlessness that is “erasing our border” and “putting pressure on social services” while the country borrows even more money from China to finance its debt...(MORE)
