Nov. 21, 2014, Fairfax, Va.—Nathan Mehrens, President of Americans for Limited Government today issued the following statement in the wake of President Obama's announced illegal alien amnesty plan:
"Last night's pronouncement by President Barack Obama that he will change our nation's immigration laws with the stroke of his pen sets up a profound constitutional crisis. If Obama is allowed to impose changes in law that Congress has specifically rejected, it sets an irreversible precedent that forever changes the separation of powers between the two branches.
"Congress must immediately return to Washington, D.C., and defund every aspect tonight's announced amnesty. Acquiescence to this constitutional power grab is not an option."
