Friday at a press conference, President Barack Obama said in order to address the humanitarian crisis of ten of thousands of unaccompanied children illegally flooding across the U.S.-Mexico border, he was “going to have act alone.”
The president said he would use an executive order to “reallocate resources.”
On the prospects of legislation passing the House, Senate Majority Leader Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) has said, “If the House does pass a bill, I can’t imagine it could be cleared on either side over here.”
Obama also argued if Republicans don’t want him to use his executive powers they simple need to pass legislation.
