    Goodlatte: Court's 'Unconstitutional' Executive Amnesty Opinion 'Good Sign'

    by Caroline May 17 Dec 2014, 2:17 PM PDT

    The recent court opinion declaring portions of President Obama’s executive actions on immigration to be “unconstitutional” bodes well for future litigation against the president’s recent order, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte tells Breitbart News.

    Tuesday, District Court Judge Arthur Schwab ruled that aspects of Obama’s executive actions go “beyond prosecutorial discretion” to actually legislating. He made these judgments as part of an opinion dealing with a criminal case.

    “President Obama’s unilateral legislative action violates the separation of powers provided for in the United States Constitution as well as the Take Care Clause, and therefore, is unconstitutional,” Schwab wrote.

    In a statement to Breitbart News, Goodlatte — whose committee has jurisdiction over immigration matters — said he agreed with Schwab’s analysis and expressed optimism about future court challenges to Obama’s executive actions.

    "I agree with Judge Schwab that President Obama's unilateral rewriting of our immigration laws violates the separation of powers and the President's duty to enforce the law,” the Virginia lawmaker said. “This ruling is a good sign for the states' lawsuit challenging President Obama's unilateral, unconstitutional actions.”

    Goodlatte continued, saying that when Congress returns next year it must look at all options to take on Obama’s executive actions.

    “Congress will continue fighting the President's actions early next year and should consider all the tools it has at its disposal, including potential litigation. Additionally, I am hopeful that the states will be successful in their effort to stop the President's actions from being implemented.”

    Goodlatte recently signed on to an amicus brief the conservative American Center for Law and Justice submitted Tuesday in support of the recent lawsuit 24 states have filed challenging Obama’s executive amnesty.

    “The President’s executive overreach on immigration must be stopped,” he stressed Tuesday in announcing his support of the brief.

    Bob Goodlatte supports mass amnesty for illegal aliens just like Obama which makes it so much more ironic when he decries Obama's dictatorial and unconstitutional actions doing exactly what Bob Goodlatte wants to do via legislation.
