NY Mayor: Obama “Has Every Right” to Bypass Congress on Amnesty
“…The president has every right to act in every way he can,” Bill de Blasio says

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio fully supports President Obama’s plan to bypass Congress by using executive actions to further enact amnesty for illegal aliens.
During a press conference earlier today, the Democratic mayor said Obama “has every right to act in every way he can” to implement so-called “immigration reform” by himself.
“If Congress is uninterested in acting on crucial national issues that have fundamental national impact on our future as a country, then the president has every right to act in every way he can,” de Blasio said, suggesting that the best way to deal with the undocumented “fellow residents of this country” right now is through amnesty by executive fiat.
“I think the president doesn’t have a lot of choice here,” he added. “I think he’s tried for years to find common ground with the Republican House members and to address something that obviously has to be responded to in this country.”
