In light of today’s events, Harry Reid ponders if House Republicans will drop their lawsuit against the president. And I can’t stop laughing.
“Senator Reid agrees with House Republican leaders’ statement that President Obama has the authority to take steps on immigration reform on his own,” [spokesman] Jentleson said. “He’s glad Republicans have come around and hopes this means they’ll be dropping their frivolous lawsuit against the President, instead of continuing to waste the American people’s time and money.”
After their plans to vote on the pathetic border bill collapsed today, Speaker Boehner once again urged the president to take unilateral action just as he did last week when he said the president “has the authority to deal with it on his own.”
Here’s what Boehner said today:
“There are numerous steps the president can and should be taking right now, without the need for congressional action, to secure our borders and ensure these children are returned swiftly and safely to their countries.”
