Gutierrez: Obama Didn’t ‘Evaluate What He Could Or Couldn’t Do’ With Exec Amnesty

Representative Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) said President Obama really didn’t evaluate what he could or couldn’t do” regarding his executive action on immigration during an interview with the Huffington Post released on Wednesday.

Gutierrez stated, “Remember when Obama said ‘I can’t do anymore, I’m not king and I’m not emperor. I can’t do anymore, the Congress has to act.’ Here’s what I believe, I believe the president really didn’t evaluate what he could or couldn’t do because he wanted Congress to act and that was his preferred route to justice for our immigrant community. But when he saw, and Boehner gave him a call, last summer and said, … ‘we’re not going to give you a vote,’ that’s when the president acted.”
