Judge Andrew Napolitano has revealed that there is “only one option” when it comes to the repercussions of Obama’s executive amnesty. Speaking with Tom Sullivan on Fox News Radio, Napolitano claimed that Obama must be impeached. He believes that Obama has essentially nullified a law giving him prosecutorial powers by using it too broadly. Without remaining within the guidelines of the law, Obama is not abiding by it.
“If there are 11 or 12 or 13 million foreign nationals living in the United States illegally, and the President says to half of them, ‘We will not deport you if you do A, B, C, D, and E’, and if he makes up the A, B, C, D, and E, it does not come from the law, he is effectively rewriting the law, or nullifying the law, and that the Constitution doesn’t permit,” said Napolitano.

He went on to tell Sullivan that Obama has violated his oath of office, for which the only option is impeachment:
“We have laws, they were on the books before he became President of the United States, he knew what those laws were when he took his oath, he knew what those laws were when he swore to uphold them faithfully, he’s violating the oath. Impeachment is the only lawful remedy under the Constitution. This is a refusal to enforce the law, this is a rewriting of the law, this is nullification of the law. I think the President has stolen power from the Congress, has imbalanced the relationship between the three branches of government, and that eventually means less personal freedom, because if Barack Obama could get away with this, then ‘fill-in-the-blank’, a President 5, or 10, or 20 years from now could get away with rewriting any law that they want.”
Obama has set a dangerous precedent, yet Democrats seemingly could care less. They would do well to start pushing back, though. The next time a President tries to invoke the authority which Obama has, they may be doing so to push a conservative agenda – not a liberal one.
There has been an abundance of talk surrounding the impeachment of Obama, yet very little has been done to make it happen. Do you think that with a Republican controlled House and Senate we will finally see some action? Tell us below.
