“We need to have compassion, of course for all people in what we do. But, compassion and concern and an allegiance to the American citizens and legal immigrants. If we ignore them in this process, in addition to our framers, then I don’t know why any of us here.” she said.
Ingraham added, “this is not just a compassion play that is in line with what Congress had already indicated by a Congressional action. The president got shellacked in the elections, in part because people are kind of fed up, and the thing that’s not being mentioned tonight at all in all of this is how this is ultimately going to effect American workers. And they are being hit, there’s a lot of real sob stories about how they’re separated from families and how they’re working two or three jobs. And that’s not mentioned at all in all of this.” And that she had “never seen a president take this much authority away from Congress and in sharp contrast to what he said just a year ago, many, many, many times.”
Regarding the legal battles over the president’s executive order, she stated “not quite sure” what standing the state of Texas had in its lawsuit against the Obama administration, and that “the standing question has to be done by a member of Congress.”
