Video-Pres. Obama said Saturday that he will begin obeying the limits on his authority – once Congress passes an immigration bill he likes.
In his weekly address, entitled “Immigration Accountability Executive Action,” Obama responded to those who criticize him for exceeding his authority by issuing an executive order changing immigration law:
“As you might have heard, there are Members of Congress who question my authority to make our immigration system work better. Well, I have one answer for that: Pass a bill. The day I sign it into law, the actions I’ve taken to help solve this problem will no longer be necessary.”
So, his “one answer” to the question of his authority appears to be that his actions are “necessary,” even though he doesn’t have the authority to take them.
