How lawless is Obama's executive amnesty? Katie Pavlich knows where to find out

Sen. Ted Cruz and the rest of us are still waiting for President Obama’s Attorney General nominee, Loretta Lynch, to say whether she believes Obama’s executive amnesty plans are constitutional and legal. We can safely assume the president’s plans aren’t constitutional, but Townhall’s Katie Pavlich would like to point out just how lawless the president’s plans are.

Conn Carroll has published a piece today at Townhall in which he looks at previous presidents’ exercise of power and compares it to Obama’s plans.

… while presidents unquestionably have the power to exercise immigration enforcement discretion in order to further foreign policy or humanitarian goals, what they do not have the power to do is functionally rewrite U.S. immigration law, which is exactly what Obama’s impending executive action on immigration would do.

The past incidents listed above were all in response to specific humanitarian crises or foreign policy events. They all were narrowly tailored to help specific subsets of immigrants.

Obama’s impending executive action is the exact opposite. He is planning on giving work permits, Social Security numbers, and drivers licenses to as many as 8 million illegal immigrants. This is not narrow humanitarian relief. This is a flagrant attempt to get around Congress’s exclusive Article I power “to establish a uniform rule of naturalization.”

Sounds pretty lawless to us.
