Rand Paul shot back at Barack Obama’s vow to use executive orders to implement his amnesty program by accusing the President of betraying the founding principles of America.

The Kentucky Senator issued a statement in the immediate aftermath of Obama’s immigration speech vowing not to let him violate the Constitution;

“President Obama is not above the law and has no right to issue Executive Amnesty. His actions blatantly ignore the Separations of Powers and the principles our country was founded on. The President has said 22 times previously that he does not have the power to legislate on immigration,” Sen. Paul said. “I believe that immigration reform is needed, however for true and effective reform, we must first secure the border. I will not sit idly by and let the President bypass Congress and our Constitution.”

Meanwhile, Republican U.S. Rep. Doug Lamborn of Colorado Springs has dared to suggest the possibility of impeaching Obama over his executive action, featuring a poll on his website which includes impeachment as an option on how Republicans should respond to Obama’s amnesty plan.

Establishment Republicans are loathe to consider impeachment because they fear it would create a rallying point point for Democrats and lead to Hillary Clinton becoming a serious contender for the 2016 presidential election.

Judge Andrew Napolitano told Fox News Radio that impeachment may be the only “lawful remedy” to Obama’s amnesty program, noting that the President is limited to prosecutorial discretion when it comes to immigration.
