With its effort to quash President Obama’s executive action amnesty inching along slower than a snail’s pace, House Speaker John Boehner has suggested that the most probable road to success might be through the courts.

Boehner indicated that House leaders believe that they have little leverage to block Obama and might consider a lawsuit against the president on immigration. Plan B would be for the House to join the 26 states which have already filed a lawsuit against Obama for his immigration overreach. Earlier this month, the House passed a homeland security spending bill that would bar Obama’s 2012 and 2014 amnesties, but it’s expected to fail in the Senate or be vetoed by the president.
Obama’s refusal to enforce existing immigration laws, his unconstitutional executive amnesty and Congress’ unwillingness to protect American citizens from dangerous aliens that the president’s amnesty shields contributed to the tragic shooting of a 21-year-old Arizona store clerk.
According to Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich, on January 22, illegal immigrant Apolinar Altamirano shot and killed Grant Ronnebeck over a pack of cigarettes. Even though Ronnebeck offered up the cigarettes after a brief tussle, Altamirano shot him at point blank range anyway. Immigration and Customs Enforcement had taken Altamirano into custody in January, but he was subsequently released on bond.
Watch Brnovich’s Fox News interview here where he asks the questions most Americans want answered: “If someone like this [Altamirano] can remain in this country, even though he’s here illegally, and has committed crimes, you have to ask yourself what is the Obama administration doing? What are their policies? Why are they allowing people like this to stay in our communities and be threats to our wives, families, children, husbands and fathers?”
The sad conclusion is that Obama doesn’t care about Americans’ safety or their future and is content to let the borders remain open regardless of the consequences.
