Sessions: Executive Amnesty 'Thunderous, Dramatic' Abuse of Power

Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) slammed the president’s plan to grant legal status to illegal immigrants in the United States through executive order as a “thunderous, dramatic abuse of presidential power.”

“The president openly stated at the NATO conference a few days ago, that he will give legal status to persons unlawfully here, utilizing executive orders.  He cannot do that colleagues, American people, they’re unlawfully here.  He has no power to reverse the laws passed by the Congress of the United States and declare someone lawful who’s unlawful.  It’s a thunderous, dramatic abuse of presidential power,” he said.
