Measure to sue president backed by House

03/13/2014 // West Palm Beach, Florida, US // JusticeNewsFlash // Justice News Flash // (press release)

Washington – The Republican-led House voted in favor of a measure that would advance congressional lawsuits against President Barack Obama. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), the House voted 233-181 for the bill aimed at forcing the chief executive to enforce federal laws, which the GOP accuses the president of having done selectively.

Rep. Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., chairman of the Judiciary Committee, is quoted by the AP as stating, “Throughout the Obama presidency we have seen a pattern: President Obama circumvents Congress when he doesn’t get his way.”

As noted in the report, Democrats have touted the legislation as rhetoric used to address problems that do not exist during an election year.

White House spokesman, Jay Carney, is quoted as stating it’s, “pretty amazing that today House Republicans went in the opposite direction by passing legislation targeting the deferred action for childhood arrivals policy that removed the threat of deportation for young people brought to this country as children, known as DREAMers.”
