‘We Have To Reel This President In’…” ‘He’s acting like a dictator, and it must stop’ “

House Republicans plan to push the immigration funding fight into next spring, when the GOP will control all of Capitol Hill, but one departing House member says lawmakers need to act more decisively to block President Obama’s executive order on immigration.

On Nov. 20, Obama signed an executive order removing the threat of deportation for illegal immigrants whose children have legal status in the U.S. Official estimates suggest the orders would impact five million people, but other experts believe the number will be much higher.

On Tuesday, House Republicans charted a multi-layered response in advance of the debate over government funding after Dec. 11. The GOP plans to fund most federal government operations through the end of Fiscal Year 2015 but fund immigration enforcement programs only until early next year. At that time, with majorities in both the House and Senate, Republicans hope to deny funding for Obama’s executive order and render it effectively meaningless. In addition, House Republicans are advancing legislation to overturn the order.

The plan is attracting quite a bit of support from GOP lawmakers, but others insist it simply is not aggressive enough.

“I don’t agree with that approach,” said Rep. Paul Broun, R-Ga. “I think we ought to have a very short continuing resolution that goes just through January, that includes limitation language that keeps the president from putting in this unconstitutional executive action in place.”
