WASHINGTON – On Nov. 20, Attorney Larry Klayman of Freedom Watch filed a complaint on behalf of Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio against President Barack Obama, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (CIS) Director Leon Rodriguez and U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder asserting their Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program from June 15, 2012 and the Nov. 20, 2014 Executive Order Amnesty (EOA) programs are “unconstitutional abuses of the president’s role in our nation’s constitutional architecture and exceed the powers of the president within the U.S. Constitution.”

'MY VIEW'   |   BY FROSTY WOOLDRIDGE

don sorchychEmperor Obama: Dismantling Our Constitution

I am relinquishing My View this week to Frosty Wooldridge who wrote this excellent piece on President Obama’s recent power-grabbing constitutional authority usurpation. The executive order flies in the face of the American people and our nation’s immigration laws.    ~ Don Sorchych

Emperor Barack Hussein Obama once again broke the U.S. Constitution this past week by illegally mandating that our laws as a sovereign country mean nothing.  He illegally overstepped his office as president by using an executive order that takes the law into his own hands and away from “We the people.”
