Krauthammer: Courts Will Eventually Overrule Obama’s Amnesty, but It Will Be Too Late
Krauthammer’s Take: The Courts Will Eventually Overrule Obama’s Amnesty, but It’ll Be Too Late (National Review Online)
On Wednesday’s Special Report, Charles Krauthammer said Congress’s lawsuit against President Obama for his administration’s actions on immigration police is respectable in principle, but needs to be complemented by the power of the purse. It’s ultimately private plaintiffs, Krauthammer said, whose suits can succeed against the president’s action — and, he said, the courts will eventually weigh in.
“There will be private suits, and I think it will take awhile, but eventually I would suspect that the Court, as constituted today, would decide that this is an unconstitutional abuse of power,” Krauthammer said. “But that will be years down the road, Obama will be out of office, and it will be extremely hard in the real world to re-illegalize people who have been essentially legalized.”
