Dana Perino, the Fox News co-cost and former spokeswoman for George W. Bush’s White House, said that President Barack Obama’s executive amnesty is well within the law.
She admitted on Thursday’s The Five that though she “might be an outlier on this,” she believed “Republicans are really boxed in” on Obama’s amnesty.
“I don’t think that we’ll have the answer to the constitutional question for years,” she said. “And at this point, I think the President has the prosecutorial discretion to do what he’s doing.”
Hours before Obama formally announced his executive amnesty, Perino said Republicans “cannot stop the President from doing this.”
